Oberon, Blow Your Horn: Fairy Trumpet
Two takes on a little flower I found Sunday up at Lower Cataract Lake. The Internet assures me this is a fairy trumpet.

Rush: Cataract Falls, Summit County, CO
A few years back Greg Thow took this majestic shot in Rocky Mountain National Park, and I’m still not sure it isn’t my favorite Greg photo ever.

After the Rain: Pearl St. Mall, Boulder

Wind River Ranch, Colorado
Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, Larimer County, Colorado

Aspen Sky: Cottonwood Pass, Colorado
If you’re a photographer in Colorado, it is required (perhaps by law) that you have two shots in your portfolio. First, you need the fall Aspens looking up at the sky shot. I haven’t nailed that one yet, but I did get this last week up on the Buena Vista side of Cottonwood Pass near Cottonwood Lake.
