Owl Creek Pass

A couple of weeks ago (I’ve been terribly slow about uploading these) I went for a little drive with the family. We went to a place that I had been wanting to get to pretty much since we moved to Colorado – Owl Creek Pass and Silver Jack Reservoir. It’s not very far from town, I had just never made it there. I’m very glad that we went! It was a great day out and about, the weather was perfect, the pictures I got were great, And it was an adventure!

September Horse Races

Saturday and Sunday of this week brought the final installment of horse races in Montrose for the year. Sunday’s races were great – Not too hot, not windy, exciting action, and more importantly, no one got hurt. The turnout for Sunday wasn’t as impressive as it has been, but I think everyone that was there was having a great time.  I’m already itching for June and the next round of Black Canyon Horse Racing Association races! (There is also rumor of possibly pairing the races up with some other infield events next year for some added excitement…)

Here are Sunday’s highlights!

Here are a few bonus shots from race 3, by special request –

Horse Races – Volume 2

Another lovely Sunday afternoon spent with my camera and my oldest munchkin at the county fairgrounds watching horse racing. It was a GORGEOUS day – perfectly sunny and probably 80-85­­°f.

The only thing missing was my new class 10 SD card, which should be in my mailbox in the next 2 days or so. I’m running a class 4 right now, so I have no HD video capabilities and I can only take 4-5 exposures at a time in RAW burst mode. So I rolled in JPEG all day, but the light was great and my settings were spot on, so I’m SUPER happy with what turned out. Take a look at some of the highlights from this wonderful day.
