Pikes Peak
Posted By: fillerupmac, 01-28-2008, 08:45 AM

OK, I know there have been zillions of photos of this Mountain. Here are a couple, shot again with the K10D, and 18-250 Tamron(Pentax)

This first one, shot from Garden of the Gods, on the west side of Colorado Springs. The summit is about 8.5 miles away. The early part of the day was much clearer than this, some "schmaze" has crept into the sky....

1/350, F9.5, ISO 200. fl 47mm

The second one maxes the 18-250, I didn't have a tripod with me.
1/500 f11, fl 250mm

The summit house is the long flat roof on the right, the taller building on the left is a utility building. (History lesson - I worked up there 1964-1979)

You can make out parts of the foot trail to the summit in the original photo, I'll post that to my pbase site this afternoon....

Thanks Tom.

Pikes Peak is 14,110 ft (stand by while I convert that to meters...) 4300 meters
Colo Springs is 6200 feet (...) 1890 meters

Having lived here for much, but not all of my life, we do tend to get "used" to the scenery. I thank my Dad for wanting to retire here.... I will do the same in just a couple more years!!
