Even though I live in Boston, I have family in Colorado Springs that I visit regularly. And for me that means getting outdoors to enjoy the beautiful scenery either in a boat, on a bike or by foot. Something about being in the mountains helps me reset. Maybe it’s the thin mountain air or the Colorado blue skies, I’m not sure. I just knew I needed to get out there.
For this visit I wanted to take some shots of trail running which is pretty popular in the region. To keep things from getting too complicated, I set up a couple of shoots with local runners during my time out there at the Garden of the Gods park. It’s right on the edge of town and is an amazing backdrop. I could probably shoot out there every day for a year and still find something new to photograph.
Here are a few of my favorites.
