Tunnel Vision

We're getting into the time of year when it's harder to get good photos for Skywatch Friday - for the next few months it's usually cloudless blue, or occasionally simple gray when snow is falling. I was hoping to get photos of last nights snow before I went to work this morning, but the clouds stuck around and the flat light would have made any photos boring. So I'm reaching into my archives from late last year for these.
 That photo was taken walking into this tunnel, on Gold Camp Road just above Colorado Springs.
Enjoy lots more skies from around the world at Skywatch Friday.

  2. I guess a lot of us are having to reach into the archives, Al, but these are gorgeous! Beautiful skies but I also love color of the stone, the arch and the rich green of the trees. Lovely shadows as well! Hope your week is going well. Enjoy your evening!

  3. An interesting way to view the sky.

    Seems like our winter sunsets are really great, but they really haven't started showing yet.

  4. Fabulous photos! From what I've seen it doesn't seem possible that you'd have boring skies there. Is it really snowing already? Wow :-D

  14. What a great shot !!
    I am looking at the tunnel and I don't see any reinforcements within..makes me wonder how safe it is to drive through.

  15. It makes a good frame. Sometimes all we can do is go to the archive or make an uninteresting shot just to say "this is what it's like around here"

  19. My goodness would I love to see this in person. It is gorgeous. I love the colors...so Colorado looking. My son was married in Cuchara and we went up to Rocky Mt. National Park. We LOVE it out there and hope to return before too many years pass.

  24. Look at the tunnel, I would never have thought I would see such a view from within it. I like the natural frame of the sky. The one I put up today has a natural frame, too. :-)

  25. Hello, dear Ed! Thank you for your kind comments about my photography. It has been a difficult month, or two around here--so I'm totally behind in most things.

    I love your blog--and I adore this wonderful photo in particular. May I share this photo, and your blog and photography on FAT Tuesday (Featured Art Tuesday) Artist Spotlight this coming week?
