Every year I say the same thing – where did summer go, and wow, the leaves seem to be turning really early. In our open space, the tops of trees are already yellow, and this week, in late July, there is a definite coolness in the air.
I round this leaf on my long run this week (hit 12 miles on Sunday) and brought it home. I thought that it was a perfect specimen of a leaf, already starting to change colors.
I wanted to see just how many stars I could get, in the middle of Broomfield, which is surrounded by the Denver Metro area – so lots of light pollution. I started at around twilight, and took a photo every 20 minutes or so.
This one was my favorite. This shows far more stars than could be seen with the naked eye, but still, not as many as I wanted to see.
I liked this shot for the clouds moving by, glowing from the lights of nearby Denver.
May have to wait until the New Moon or when the Perseids come out next month – and head up to the hills.
I will be doing further posts for them. Had you asked me a few months ago if I would be doing this, I would have recommended that you get your head checked. Funny how things just pop up in life sometimes!
Here is the time-lapse out of my camera – August 11, 2012 from Rocky Mountain National Park. I love the shooting star about 1/2 way through, and then a flash of headlights makes it look like it landed and exploded!
We just got back from a wonderful vacation to San Clemente California – a place I’ve been going for 41 years…wow. My wonderful folks met us there and we had such a nice time. Not much has changed there, and that’s good! This is a little montage from footage I took on our trip of the Pier area. I have included a time-lapse sunset at the end. Great place to practice my video skillz…
We met my cousin and his wife Iris in Moab this past March (2012) to meet their two new additions (twin boys), and to meet my folks who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary! This was taken at La Sal Viewpoint, with the ’3 gossips’ in the background
Pretty excited to have learned how to use ‘skins’ on my x-county/tele skis – Jeff and I went up to Clinton Gulch in January and although the snow was thin and it was about 50 degrees (warm) it was a great little adventure!
