Sunset on Water

A framed photo of a hillside covered in Mountain Mahogany drops steeply to an ice covered lake reflecting the setting sun.
The holidays are past. I had a wonderful Christmas with my family and a great New Years Day celebration too. I am rested and ready to jump back into photography. I have many goals for this new year and am happy that I have all of you to be my guides for this journey. I appreciate your comments on my work more than you know. So without further adieu...

The sun sets early in northern Colorado at the beginning of the year. In the summer four-thirty in the afternoon would be early enough in the day for many outdoor activities to still be done. But in the middle of the winter it is time to head for home and sip wine by the fire. That is exactly what I had planned on doing when I drove the serpentine road around the frozen lake. But my eye kept wandering from the road to the beautiful light reflected on the ice so I pulled the truck over to the roadside to take a few shots. I hope you enjoy the serene vista of a frozen lake at sunset in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

  1. Oops...I commented earlier but don't think it "took." I was saying how much I adore the aqua reflection in the 2nd photo, lower left. It's a yummy hue. You live in Paradise, dearie!

  4. Especially the second picture, simply fantastic. What a beautiful start to the new year.

    With us right now is so much snow that you can hardly go out. So I enjoy your photos and wait for a little less snow.


    Glad you're back!
