Here are a dozen images from 2017 that I liked. Happy New Year and hope the coming year is full of good things for you.

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.

Memorial Day Begins

Memorial Day Sunrise on County Road 13

Memorial Day Sunrise on County Road 13

I awoke at 4:00 am, made a French Press coffee, put it in my thermos then drove out east to Weld County in anticipation of the morning sunrise. It is a beautiful day. We had a few rain showers yesterday afternoon which makes it a bit humid and therefore I came home chilled. However, the need to be out there and listen to all the Meadowlarks singing to me and watch the sun rise was worth it.

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.

Windmill at Sunset

Windmill at Sunset on Pawnee National Grasslands

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!

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. 🙁
