Trees & Pikes Peak

I've got a couple of different Skywatch Friday shots from the last week. First up is a beautiful winter sky from Saturday's Fox Run Park hike with Socks.
And next is a cold, snow-covered Pikes Peak on Monday morning, after a brief snowstorm had moved through.
I'll post more snowy photos this weekend, since I took a brief detour to Garden of the Gods on the way to work after the storm. In the meantime, visit Skywatch Friday and I'm sure you'll find lots of beautiful scenery.

  1. These are truly superb, Al! The beauty of the snow makes you forget -- at least for a while -- just how cold it is! Really look forward to your Garden of the Gods shots! I hope the week is going well -- for you and Socks!

  19. Ah, Pike's Peak looks at its best when snow covered! Once I stayed for a week at a house in Colorado Springs with a view of this mountain, and I fell in love - on my bucket list to paint this one!
