Snowy Mountains

Here's a simple B&W Skywatch Friday shot taken from our porch after 7 inches (18 cm) of snow this weekend, looking towards the cloud-covered mountains. There were no Pikes Peak views that morning!

Osaka Castle Views

Here are some photos of the Osaka skyline taken from the top of Osaka Castle.
It's an attractive, modern city.
Of course there are lots of tall buildings.
You can see a castle decoration in the foreground of this one.

Cute Laika

It's not the best quality shot, but it's cute so I'm posting it. Our little dog Laika loves to snuggle.

Osaka Castle (2)

Continuing with our visit to Japan last year, here are some more photos taken around the Osaka Castle (大坂城 or 大阪城) grounds, starting with its moat, which didn't have water in this part.
In other places it was full.
The walls were impressive.
And a final fun shot with a very wide-angle fisheye lens.

Colorado 1999

Here's a random 1999 photo (scanned from a print) from somewhere in Colorado for the weekend. I'll never tire of the ever-changing scenery in my favorite state!

Another Sunset

A Happy New Year to all my readers! Last weekend was quite the weather roller-coaster. According to the nearest official weather station (at the United States Air Force Academy), Saturday's low was -8 °F (-22.2 °C). But by Sunday afternoon we'd rebounded to 54 °F (12.2 °C). That's a change of 62 °F (34.4 °C) in just over a day! Here's a recent cellphone sunset Skywatch Friday shot to start 2019.
