I saw new houses being built and seems like that entire area will be developed before you know it.
I visited Ouray a few years ago. This picture really takes me back.
We went to a brewpub/restaurant which I believe is right about in the middle of the picture. We sat at an outdoor seating area which happened to be on the 2nd floor or roof. We had a great lunch and beer and were treated to quite a show when a random thunderstorm came roaring down the canyon. Weather went from sunny and warm to cold and dark in no time. It was incredible to see this storm roll in.
OP, thanks for posting and stirring my memories.
And hey - at least you aren't wasting film while you learn! When I first started I would have to drop off my rolls, wait to pick them up, and then realize I didn't get the shot. Digital is instant gratification and you can take several shots of the same scene until you feel like you captured it.
Nice shots, thanks for posting them up. We've done a number of Colorado/Utah/Four Corners trips, and these shots bring back great memories. We really enjoyed Durango and Gunnison, FTR. The last time we were back in Durango, though, you could tell how much more it was built up and developed from a decade before. Big box stores, dealerships, etc. Glad we saw it before it changed.

Ouray might have a prettier backdrop, but we all preferred the town of Telluride. Everything is very upscale and nice, while keeping the historical look and feel of the town. The hike to Bridal Veil Falls was amazing too. Luckily our Ouray campsite was in a good location to easily travel between both towns.

What a trip. I love the photos.
DCI - Party time, excellent.
Are you trying to purchase your first DSLR? That's a completely different topic, one that should also be accompanied by a discussion about lenses as well.
And don't forget to study the photos themselves. Why are we all kiznarsh fans? Note the rich, clean tones. Saturation is high, but never ridiculous. Also notice the variety of compositions and subject matter that keeps you moving through the thread. Once you figure out what you're looking for, you have something to think about and aim for.
I always say that you should start in photography by trying to copy your favorite photos. You'll fail at copying, but you'll still create something and learn a lot in the process
