Leaving Town

Common Scene at the Coffeehouse

Common Scene at the Coffeehouse

We’ve decided it’s too cold to stay here in Colorado so my sister, Sheree, and I are flying to Phoenix today for Thanksgiving with family. The only electronic devices will be my phone, Kindle reader and the X-T10 with 27mm and 35mm. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Along the Road

Along the Road

I took this image somewhere between Cowdrey and Walden, Colorado. I had ridden my motorcycle, a BMW1150RT, over Cameron Pass to visit some friends who lived in Cowdrey.  On my way home I noticed this view and needed to stop, take it in and get my camera out. Sometimes I really miss that motorcycle.

We received our first snowfall yesterday. I took this at the entrance to the Fisher Nature Area trail near my condo. This morning we are at 19 degrees and frost on windows. Stay warm.

It’s Gone

The Barn

The Barn

Loss is a part of life. We experience loss through declining health, jobs, marriages, and children who move off to school.  There is a sadness within as I look at this image taken back in June of 2006. I made visits to this older barn and it’s open view of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It is is gone now and a large executive housing complex is going up. 🙁

From the Past

San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge

San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge

This is from a trip I made to San Francisco back in October 2005. I flew out and stayed in a hostel in San Francisco and walked the streets. I processed this image using Silver EFEX Pro 2.

A Morning Walk in the Desert

Morning Walk in the Desert

Here is another image from my trip in October to the Phoenix area. This is on the south side of the Superstition Mountains along the Peralta Trail Road. It is a wonderful place to find quite. You will hear a coyote howl, a cactus wren call out, and no sign of man. This is three jpeg images run through HDR Efex Pro.
