Ferry in Maine

Here are some more photos from our ferry ride in Portland, Maine last summer, focusing on the boats we saw.
I've always loved being on the water.
I'd love to own one of these boats!
And for something completely different, I was amused by this sign in Massachusetts. Are you allowed to read or not? (It's not a great shot as it was taken from a car at twilight; I edited it to take out a period after the "NO".)

Niagara Falls 1978 (1)

From my first trip to the United States of America, in the middle of 1978, scanned and corrected from an old slide.

Snowy Garden

I stopped by a city park on the way to work this morning to take some photos.
After a fresh snowfall I can't think of anywhere more beautiful I've ever seen, with its incredible rock formations and surrealistic colors.
This next formation is called Kissing Camels, and from the right angle that's exactly what it looks like.
Pikes Peak stands out.
Rocks, snow, and winter vegetation make for a real winter wonderland.
It may look like something from a fairy tale but it's real!

Rocky Beach

Here are the last of my photos from a Massachusetts beach, showing its rocky nature. Despite the grey day I loved being by the water, as it's not something we see much of where I live in Colorado.

Taken on a cloudy day from a trip back in June that I'm finally posting about. This one's for Scenic Weekends.

Grey Beach

From the mountains last weekend, I'm going back to a Massachusetts beach in June on a grey day for my Skywatch Friday post.

Copper Mountain

I went skiing for the first time in over 10 years on Saturday, thanks to a promotional season pass for Copper Mountain Resort. (All photos are taken with my old point-and-shoot camera as I didn't want to ski with the big one.)
It was a perfect blue-sky Colorado day and I couldn't imagine anything I'd rather be doing. I had an absolute blast and I'm sure I'll be out several more times this winter.
After a few rusty turns it all came back and it was like I never took a ten-year break.
Which way should I go? (For non-skiers, in the U.S.A. black-diamond runs are classified "most difficult" or "expert terrain"; the only higher classification is "experts only".)
Let's try some moguls.
I went down this run.
There were no cliffs, but a couple of moderately steep stretches.
