Trees at Sunset

Trees at Sunset

This was taken 5 years ago and is a pair of favorite trees I visited a lot. I have not been there for quite some time and wonder how they would look now. Good grief, we are less than a week away from Christmas.  It is coming up too fast. I noticed we are expecting to have a bit of cooler weather for Christmas. They say snow Thursday through Saturday then single digit temperatures at night for the next 5 days. Brrr!

Dusting of Snow

Dusting of Snow

Awoke to a lite dusting of snow and a temperature of 30 degrees. With such nice weather the past few days we can be lulled into forgetting it is December with the Winter Solstice only a week away. Hope you have a great day and stay warm.

Sunrise

Sunrise on Campus

Sunrise on Campus

We have had some very pretty sunrises lately. I took this one this past Friday morning as I walked across the parking lot of the Lory Student Center on my way to Mugs Coffee shop for my fix. What was enjoyable for me in this image was the texture of clouds. Yesterday was lines and chaos, today was patterns and chaos. This is a jpeg file from the camera. All I did was bring out a touch of the blue.

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

We have had cloudy and cooler weather for the past few days, seeing less of our Colorado sunshine. This past Saturday was a day for lovely clouds and not just a gray sky. I have taken several images from this location and always include the trees.

An Observation

Hiawatha Lake

Hiawatha Lake

There seems to be a correlation between the increase in my age and a decrease in  sunrise images and increase of sunsets images. Now at Momo Lolos coffeehouse and listening to a pianist and flutist duet. Love the change from the piped music we find most of the time.

Family and community are an essential part of my life as well as my solitude. There are some who avoid solitude, finding it uncomfortable. And, there are some who avoid communities, finding it uncomfortable. I need both. Community and fellowship helps me to appreciate the solitude and quiet. While the solitude and quiet help me appreciate community.

“Home is, ultimately, that place where we find the peace and harmony that comes from learning to live with the knowledge of our own imperfections and from learning to accept the imperfections of others.” Ernest Kurtz
