FOUNTAIN, Colorado

I have photographed these lamp poles on many different occasions over the past two years but never seemed to get the right combination of wind, lighting, weather, composition and angle until this day.  Fountain, Colorado was voted as an All American City in 2000 and the city proudly carries on its welcoming hometown appeal to this day.

Hey Dorn,  I can see why you wanted to get that just right.  With something like that you run the risk of it looking just like a snapshot.  However, your perserverence has payed off with an image that goes far beyond the "snapshot".  I really repect your choice of flag positioning in this shot.  It would have bee all too easy to wait for a gusty day and get it full on.  This way, it is less the focal point, and more a contributing element to the whole picture.

Nice photo!    Carbondale, Illinois has a historic district and some friends of mine live on a street where similar posts have been used.     mark
