So I am told I should blog ..... here goes nothing ! Since this is my first real blog post I feel compelled to start with a blanket disclaimer. I don't believe or feel like I am a writer in any way, shape, or form. I am a Mom/Wife first, a retired cop second .... and then I am a photographer. What started as a hobby many moons ago is now a passion, and a career ..... in that order. I am not a long winded person by nature. I am more a blunt and to the point kind of gal so we shall see how this goes. However, I do hope you enjoy my lil' snippets of the world through my eyes and come back to visit often.
As many of you know, I recently moved from a very flat and often boring IL to Colorful Colorado ! It has been an adventure thus far and I CAN NOT wait for what my future holds. . Each morning I wake up is so vastly different from any other morning that has come before. No sunrise or sunset is quite the same. Yes, the view may be the same, but each and every time I look out my window (more like stare in awe of the beauty) it is subtly and uniquely different.
These next few images are of the exact same view but they are so very different in appearance. All of them are stunning, but they all seem to possess their own personality and mood. This is my absolute favorite view from the lane that leads to our home. I could get lost in it all day long, and sometimes do. The layers and details involved in this truly majestic view often make it hard for my old eyes to really focus and take it all in.
A little about this view, the first image was captured this morning as I drove my son down to the bus. I find it almost impossible to just drive by and not snap a shot. Today there just happened to be that big, beautiful moon hanging overhead, pair that with the not a cloud in the incredibly bue sky and it takes your breath away...... In the far distance you can clearly see Rocky Mt. Nat. Park, Long's Peak.
This image was taken shortly after we moved here where I woke up to what appeared to be just a frozen winter wonderland (not to be confused with Arrandale). There was not any real snow to speak of but the temps were fairly warm during the day and cold at night, so everything just got "frozen" with a thin layer of ice. It was like nothing I had every really seen before. Just plain gorgeous and peaceful.
This was taken last week after we got about a foot and a half of snow dumped on us. I never thought I would appreciate snow ...... until I moved HERE !
This last image for today is the same as the first, just in black & white. I am in love with images like these, the mood they convey, and timelessness of them.
So there it it ! I did it ! My first blog entry is complete. If you made it this far, I hope you enjoyed it and want to thank you for spending a few minutes out of your busy day with me.

Have a great Day !
