Weekend Flash Back - Denver, Colorado 05/04/06

                                  Camera - Canon EOS-1D Mark II

It was early morning on a spring day as I drove down to Denver. A storm was moving in and covered most of the sky except to the east. This caused a silhouetted Denver skyline. Pulling off the 6th Ave freeway at the Simms/Union exit, I parked my car, grabbed my gear and went to take a look. From this location the skyline was perfect and car lights were noticeable in the foreground. Using my 70 - 200 zoom and a f/stop with enough depth of field, the car lights and the buildings would be in focus. Once setting the  f/stop, the light exposure was taken from the bright section of the sky. I waited  until a line of car lights could be seen, then shot this image.
