A substantial amount of snow fell on this suburban open space area in central Colorado, but after a couple of days the weather warmed up and it all melted! It was pretty while it lasted. To see all of this week’s monochrome images, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
Today’s challenge theme is Season and I chose this first image to send to Leanne for the challenge. To see all of the creative entries in the challenge, visit Leanne Cole Photography.
The second image, taken in the same location in Colorado, is also monochromatic in appearance. I processed both images for a light, high key look.
A parched thistle gracefully bows its blossoms at the end of an autumn afternoon on the Colorado prairie.
Before winter sets in, I want to share this image of the lovely Colorado autumn. This granary sits on mixed-use land owned by the local government, but leased out for farming. Hiking trails wind through the open space bounded by a rippling stream and meadows of prairie grasses.
Active farming and open space prairie coexist in this rural spot on the mile-high plains of Colorado. On this autumn day, the turning leaves match the golden colors of the grasses that blanket the pastures.
It is February and the waters of this Rocky Mountain creek near Boulder are melting slightly. You would think that spring was near. But sunshine and warmth return even in the coldest of Colorado winters and spring snowstorms sometimes continue until early May.
