Stunning circular cloud formation at sunset

Sometimes the most amazing scenes come to you.  This spectacular cloud occurred over the north Denver area on January 5, 2012 at sunset.  I saw it as I was letting the dogs outside and, not wanting to miss the moment, grabbed my point-and-shoot which was sitting nearby.  Certainly I wish I would have had my SLR handy in order to get a better quality image of this extraordinary event.  However it goes to show that even the little cameras can get great pictures – if you are ready.

Hanging out with the bald eagles at Cherry Creek State Park

It won’t be long before the bald eagles leave Colorado and head north so I have to take the opportunities when I can.  Back down at Cherry Creek State Park on a very cold morning they were quite compliant with having their photos taken.

Sunrise and bald eagles at Cherry Creek State Park

The rumors about a bunch of bald eagles at Cherry Creek State Park were too much for me to ignore. Thankfully they were true. A great morning!

It doesn’t get better than a bald eagle and the Rocky Mountains

I went down to Cherry Creek State Park this morning where I had heard there was a lot of bald eagle activity.  That was an understatement as they seemed to be everywhere and I took a lot of good pictures of them.  This was one of my favorites as it captured my favorite subject, a bald eagle, coupled with the snow-capped Colorado Rockies.

A very cold lake front

With morning temperatures down into the single digits I almost didn’t venture out. While cold, the wintry scenes were quite pretty. This one taken at Barr Lake.

Winter white trees and shrubs

A very cold and somewhat miserable start to meteorological spring in the Denver area.  With temperatures in the teens and windchill temperatures pushing down to near zero, I almost had to force myself to get out and take this picture.  I am glad I did.  The trees were all covered in white from the freezing drizzle and snow and while it looked somewhat dreary, it was pretty in its own right.

A cold, gray day along the South Platte River

With record-setting cold in the Denver area at the time this picture was taken, it was not a great day to be outside.  Overcast skies made a walk along the South Platte River a bit dreary.  Converting this image to black and white seems to work week and convey the mood of that cold, dark day.

Weld County moonset over the Rockies

On a usual weekend drive looking for something to take picture of, I was pleased to come across this scene in southern Weld County.  The moon coupled with the amber field and snow-capped Rocky Mountains looked gorgeous.

Bison graze in the shadow of the Rockies

A brilliantly clear day provided for some great viewing of the Colorado Front Range.  This image taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge showcases the beauty of the area.  With the bison grazing in the foreground, the snow-covered mountains behind and blue sky above make for a stunning image.

The last sunrise of 2013

The last sunrise of 2013 proved to be an absolutely gorgeous one.  This image was taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge just before the sun peeked over the horizon.
