On Thursday I had an errand that took me to the southwest part of town, so on my way home I made it a point to drive up Cheyenne Cañon and sit by Cheyenne Creek. Just a few minutes of quiet time, with nothing but the sound of water rushing over rocks, and I felt fully recharged. It's been a busy, stressful summer and though I appreciate having lots of work, I have been feeling a little worn down lately! Thankfully I live only a few minutes away from this kind of natural beauty. It's the best way to de-stress.
Here's a pano of three or four photos put together. For the curious, I didn't really have a super duper fancy camera with me, just my old D300 with a 28-75 f:2.8 short zoom. I used a tripod, shot at f:32 and the lowest ISO, and the shutter speed was two seconds. Oh and to take these pictures I was standing with one foot on the riverbank and one foot on a rock in the water! One of my tripod legs was standing in the water too.
