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.

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!

Now Black and White

Sunrise on the Farm

A winter snow storm came through Wednesday morning and moved out by noon on Thursday. It has brought some cold temperatures and 6-8 inches of snow. It’s 7:30 am and my weather app and car both say -9 degrees. Have not been too interested in going out so I played with some images. This image was taken a few years ago and converted in Silver EFEX Pro using one of their presets. Here is the color version,

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.

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.
