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.

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

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!

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. 🙁

Another Sunrise on Peralta Trail

I am a fan of open vistas, sunrises and sunsets. Needless to say this area down here supplies all of them. I will be heading back to Colorado this coming Saturday morning and should arrive Sunday afternoon. I am a bit disappointed in not seeing as much outside of this area but there will be other opportunities.
