These are some of the other shots that I took on vacation in Colorado. As much as thistles suck if they are in your yard, they make awesome subjects for pictures.
Below is a shot I took of the grasses that grow between my parent's house and the golf course. The out of bounds area. The first is the raw picture, the second is me playing with the color settings, saturation, etc.
I probably could have done a better job, but I like the effect that I got. I'm trying to learn how to use iphoto. Think it's about time?
