Drive Across Colorado

Day Eighteen. Took the scenic way across Colorado, which culminated in a stop at Black Canyon. Having properly learned the position of infinity on my wide angle lens, I was able to keep significantly more of the shots than I was from the previous day. I also tried to practice bracketing more since I was having a good bit of trouble getting the camera to accept the fact that the sky was vastly brighter than the subject material. Again, shots with too high of contrast between the sky and the subject proved to be nearly unshootable. I'm quite certain that either I am doing something wrong, I need the type of filter who's name currently escapes me, or newer cameras are better at compensating. I'm mostly inclined to believe that option one and two are roughly the same thing and that option three should be explored sperately since the D70 is pushing a decade old now.
