Pikes Peak
Lens: 18-250mm Camera: K5 Photo Location: Colorado 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 08-12-2013, 05:42 AM

heavy fog blankets the front range while storm clouds move over the Rocky Mountains. Pikes Peak elevation is 14,100' to give you an idea of how thick the fog was at the time. Rains at last years Waldo Canyon burn scar caused heavy damage to Manitou Springs, a popular tourist area and washed cars down the canyon. Photo taken in hazy conditions, hand held.

Wow that video is amazing, not a bad pic either. We have had some of that flooding here this year as well, fortunately not very close to the area we live.

That's one nice landscape, Bob - there's a grain or texture to the image that I find appealing - gives it the look of a painting.

I was dimly aware of flash flooding in Colorado - but didn't realize till I read this thread that Manitou Springs was the location. I've spent a lot of nights there over the years.

It really is a great little town and very beautiful area Jer, they are expecting thunderstorms for the next couple of days, so hopefully the area can dry out a bit. I shot this through some haze type conditions that may account for the look, thanks for the kind words my friend.

Excellent image there Bob! Really like the mood.

Just heard about Manitou Springs (been out of town) that is sad to see. Hope all is well with the family out there and they weren't affected.

All well here CJ, we were up at Cripple Creek and headed back down and missed the flood by about an hour, better to be lucky than good I think.
