winter scene

Now that the holidays are over, the stock show is over and the X games over, the lights on the Denver City and County Building will be turned off. While they were on they were vibrant. It's always nice to have a City focal point.

winter kale

was hoping to get out of the deep freeze on trip to Texas but it was cold and dreary there, too. Came home in a snow squall, however, we had wonderful Colorado sunshine today even if it was cold.

Deep Freeze

we have had some really cold temperatures here in Colorado lately. So the good snow we got last week had stayed around. Above is from a bush in the front of my house that had 4 to 5 inch piles of snow on the branches. The branches made interesting bumpy patterns when turned into a kaleidoscope.

Happy New Year!

Rocks, rocks and more rocks is what we saw on our trip to the Southwest, this view is looking through Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. The light colored stone is part of the arch and the rest is the view beyond. There is a deep canyon on the plain and table top mesas in the distance. I had seen a sunrise shot through the Mesa Arch - I was not to get that picture but the view was beautiful, worth the hike.
