Temperatures reached the upper 40's this morning so I along with many other folk took advantage of a sunny day off and went outside. It has been a while since I visited the Garden of the Gods so I headed out that way. I always get such a nice view of Pikes Peak there, and today was no exception. I shot this picture while waiting for the hikers to move out of vision so I could take just a scenery shot, but after viewing the pictures later I found the initial shot with the hikers to be more appealing.
I happened across this old bridge and was setting up for a still shot when a biker rode past. Suddenly the bridge was no longer just a piece of scenery, it was part of a story.
These riders also crossed my plane of sight and I was lost interest in a distant hill in favor of their obvious enjoyment of the day and companionship. Yes, spring is definitely, finally in the air!
Note to self: Start carrying the tripod with you!
