I many times drive Highway 83 from Denver to Colorado Springs and love the rolling farmland along East Cherry Creek basin. It just has a calmness to it. On the way back from Colorado Springs today I noticed the beautiful afternoon sky with some thunderstorms off in the distance as I rolled past the Russellville turnoff . I decided I had to stop. I just had my new Fuji X-T1 with me and a 18-55mm zoom so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to see how it performed. I captured this handheld with 8 vertical frames and then stitched it together in Photoshop. I applied a VSCO Film Kodak Royal Gold 400 Warm to it and then removed the grain and added some tweaks and cropped it to a 1:3 panoramic format.
I have to say I’m really enjoying my new Fuji X-T1. It’s so refreshing to not have to carry 5lbs. of gear with me and the detail on the images is wonderful! I still need to put it through its paces some more, but it’s been wonderful so far. I was really a sceptic, but after shooting with it I’m really enjoying it.
