Storm’s a Coming

They are predicting rain and cold for the rest of the week. Took this image yesterday morning at the Transit Center on my way to coffee.

Sunset

Sunset

Spring like weather is here. But, this is Colorado so snow can still make an appearance. Buds and blossoms are everywhere. Tulips are making their appearance on campus. Robins and chickadees are singing each morning, making the day start off on the right foot. And, at the end of this day will be a sunset, reminding me how good life is. Hope you have a great day!

Sunrise in Colorado

Sunrise in Colorado

No smog in Colorado after yesterdays winds and gusts up to 45 mph. Had to hang on to my hat. Hoping everyone has a wonderful week.

Windmill at Sunset

Windmill at Sunset on Pawnee National Grasslands

Pawnee National Grassland is located in the South Platte River basin in remote northern and extreme northeastern Weld County and comprises two parcels totaling 193,060 acres. It is part of the short grass prairie. Due to poor soil and the Dust Bowl it has not had much agricultural invasion. It’s about a two hour drive from my house and one reason. You can probably understand why I have mainly sunset images rather than sunrises. 🙂 Hope you have a super week!

A Log and It’s Shadow in Color

Here is the same image as yesterday only in color and another quote. 

“We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.” Wendell Barry

A Log and It’s Shadow

Log and It’s Shadow

Log and It’s Shadow

Took a walk this past Sunday along the Red Fox Meadows nature trail. Mostly cloudy day but so enjoyable and much needed time in nature to clear the thinking. It also provides the exercise my body and spirit need. I find it fascinating when scenes appear that catch my attention and become an image for me. I feel like a child discovering something new. Processed this image with one of the presets in Silver EFEX Pro. Made a tone curve adjustment then posted it.

“Nobody can discover the world for somebody else.  Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond…” Wendell Barry
