I love to travel and I was finally able to get off of the east coast and head out west to the beautiful Boulder, Colorado. This photo was taken on the road to the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory. A short drive from town and passed a neighborhood, this area seems like it is in the middle of nowhere! I parked along the side of the road, hoping that no other cars would come by. I propped up my little tripod on the roof of my car and while getting my settings down, I could hear coyotes yelping in the not-too-far distance. Being alone in the dark on this alienesque road, my nerves got to me and all of the knowledge for a sharper image eluded me. I just felt like I needed to get out of there before being abducted by aliens or chased by coyotes!
The anxiety was worth it!
