Fall Colors, Kebler Pass Road, Colorado

Fall colors, Kebler Pass Road, Colorado. Not far from Lost Lake, outside of Crested Butte, off the Kebler Pass Road to Paonia is this wonderful sight. The shape of things to come very soon in this area. The tips of the cottonwoods and aspen are starting to show their colors. I’m looking forward to it. I’m very fortunate to live where I do. So much of what I love and photograph is in my big back yard. Thanks for looking. G

Paradise Divide, Crested Butte, Colorado

Paradise Divide, Crested Butte, Colorado. On the way to Paradise Divide the road climbs steeply with drop offs to afford spectacular views that open up across the valleys. Mountain rains and breaks in the clouds added to the atmosphere in this picture. It’s very refreshing for me to look at during the excessive heat we’ve experienced lately. Back to New Mexico in tomorrow’s photo. Thanks for looking and all the comments and compliments on my work. G

Slate River, Crested Butte, Colorado

Slate River, Crested Butte, Colorado. Yep, the colors along the banks of the Slate River look like this. I’ve seen similar colors of slate lining walls in homes and more upscale hotels. Where I grew up in Wales the roofs were all blue slate and the houses built from locally quarried stone. This particular geology has the iron colors running throughout. I like it and reminds me of home. Thanks for looking. G

Bountiful, Road Trip, Colorado

Bountiful, road trip on Highway 285, Colorado. There’s lots to see in the San Luis Valley, one of the most bountiful agricultural areas in the country. Bountiful, on the north/south route has large grain silos holding barley for the Coors beer company. This is the sign between the highway and railroad tracks. I found the weathering rather interesting and worthy of a picture. Thanks for looking. G

Cliff Palace, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Cliff Palace in Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado. Cliff Palace is one of many large structures in the national park. The first image is a close up of some of the reconstructed buildings in Cliff Palace. The second image is of the whole structure. If you’ve been to Mesa Verde you know what an amazing place it is. If you haven’t been, I recommend a visit… when you can! Thanks for looking. G

Mural, San Luis, Colorado

Mural, San Luis, Colorado. Stopped in to San Luis this morning. The town is reputed to be the “Oldest Town” in Colorado, it says so on a sign! I wont dispute that fact. It was fun to hoof it around the little town, with my friend Larry and make some images. I liked this non-political mural and the shadows from the latilla/coyote fence, constructed from young aspens, juxtaposed with the diagonal field furrows. Thanks for looking. G

San Luis Valley, Red Barn, Black And White

San Luis Valley, the red barn in black and white with a magnificent sky. Another great day out today, in and around the SLV (as it’s known locally), shooting video for a future project. I’ll let you know how it turns out. When it is done you’ll see it here. Thank you as always for checking in, looking and for all the comments and compliments. G
