Been shooting exclusively in raw only to find photoshop can’t read canon’s raw format. wtf
Last week I visited Mesa Verde again with my family. Big difference this time from last – it was summer and HOT. There are a lot of tourists. But I’m happy to say I finally got the pano shot of Cliff Palace I wanted to get last time.
Now that’s a sweet pano:
I tried so hard to get it without people, but there just happened to be a man climbing out the exit on the right top part of the cliff wearing the brightest orange shirt he could have picked out that morning. Thanks tourist! I actually like that he’s there – it’s like Where’s Waldo in the 800-year-old cliff dwelling.
Did you find him? You might need to click on the photo to see it bigger.
Here’s a closer look …… UBER zoom.
Continuing my quest to share my favorite photos from my trip to the Southwest last April.
Here are some (what I think) are amazing views of Mesa Verde in Southern Colorado.
This here is Cliff Palace.
I shared another view of Cliff Palace during my top travel photos of 2010.
If you ever have a chance to visit this area in your lifetime, do! April is a great time to go, the crowds are thin and we ended up going during National Parks week, so entrance was free.
This is what’s left of a top mesa dwelling.
Next: On to Colorado National Monument.
