A Quick Trip to Ridgway

The family and I took a drive to Ridgway tonight to try to catch the sun setting off of the mountains. I didn’t get to the right spot in time to set up the shot that I wanted, but I didn’t come away with an empty camera.

I just had to stop on the way home to capture this view of Ridgway Reservoir in the twilight.

Creativity Challenge – Natural Formations

Alas, I have not forgotten about this week’s creativity challenge! I didn’t get out and shoot for this one like I wanted to, but I have some shots to share with you anyhow, some old, some new. Without any further ado: Natural Formations.

Oh, Christmas Tree! (part 1)

It is becoming an annual tradition of mine to take pictures of the city Christmas tree. Last year I snapped a good one of the moon over the lit-up tree and it got a big reaction in the ‘community’ section of the local paper. This year I wanted to recreate the shot with my new-and-improved camera. In doing so I got a couple other photos that I actually like more than this year’s ‘full moon topper’ pictures. I intend to get a little different shot later this month, which I shall post [here] when I do.

I leave these for your consideration.

November Skies

November, so far, has been a good month for skies. Winter is coming upon us fast, which means a lack of motorsports events for me to follow. So I will be posting mostly nature and hopefully some more portraits, too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

This week the theme is today. Therefore I will share with you some of my ‘today’.

Today was the first day this year that I got to see blossoms on the catalpa trees. They were absolutely buzzing with bees!

I took a walk with my older munchkin and found some awesome flowers. I’m pretty sure this is some type of milkweed.

Then, on the way home, the moon did this.

Today was pretty great!
