It's official - summer's gone, as we got our first snow on Friday, along with a temperature of 18 F (-8 C).
Looking out our front door it seemed like winter.
But of course, here in Colorado bad weather doesn't last for long, and this was the scene in our local park when I took Socks for a walk this afternoon (the temperature had rebounded to 58 F, or 14.4 C).
I love walking along a sunny trail in a pine forest.
The views towards Pikes Peak are lovely.
Near the end of the walk we approached the lakes.
The sun reflecting off the water through the aspen leaves is welcome.
Born in London, I've lived in The Netherlands, New York, and Washington DC. Now I've settled down in Colorado and love taking pictures. Unless otherwise stated, all pictures are taken by me with my Nikon D40X. I do almost no photo editing - occasionally I will crop or remove a dust spot, but that's all. What comes out of the camera is what you see here.
