If you missed it, the gallery has a whole new look, a new site supporting, and lots of cool features! If you haven’t had a chance to peruse the new collection (which, by the way, is much more up to date than my previous gallery) please click on the Gallery tab above. Some of the cool new features you’ll get there is a much more seamless browsing experience, and more control of how and what you see. Another nice little tid bit over there is the side panel that pops up when you mouse over a large photo. You can see it below, all the way on the right. It has a nice little ‘thumbs up’ spot, as well as links for you to check out the photo on a much larger scale than was available before. For those of you a bit more interested in the ‘technical specs’ of any given photo, click on that little ‘i’, and all the photo’s metadata will pop up for you, from camera settings to what lens was used.
Little House on the Hill
There isn’t a whole lot of room on the top of Mt. Evans when you first get up there. It has a little building to do some exploring and site seeing from, but really it’s on the top of a mountain, so it’s not like you have an abundance of space to go wandering about. As you may have already guessed, that has little impact on my exploratory nature, and quickly I was off to a new area, where there were these neat little observatory buildings built in to the side of mountain. They had big solar panels around them looked quite rustic but modern at the same time. The amazing weather was changing all around (as I imagine is generally the case for a mountain top) and this was one that struck me as pretty interesting.
