Willow Creek Trail

Willow Creek Trail at Roxborough State Park

It was a beautiful day for hike through this gem of a State Park. I opted for one of the more moderate trails just for a change of scenery. With a Colorado blue sky and wispy white clouds, the day was perfect.

Rocky Mountain National Park Afternoon

In need of a little head clearing earlier this week,  I wandered up to RMNP to poke around and see what was to be seen. Cold, crisp, and snowy conditions, and temps in the high 20’s were a wake up! The lakes, for the most part were frozen over and snow covered. The dryness of the air and gusty winds made for some interesting snow devils dancing across the lakes.

The changes in altitude gave view to different conditions also. Blowing snow at Bear Lake (9500′), clearer at Sprague Lake (8733′), and clear at Moraine Valley made for some interesting views. I especially like the scene below at Moraine Park. The clear meadow, snow/fog shrouded mountains in the distance, topped by blue skies. It is a perfect representation of the drive.

Snowy Red Rocks

Snow Capped Red Rocks

The day after we had 14″+ snow dumped on us, I had to drop some paperwork off at Roxborough State Park office. I must have viewed this rock formation a hundred times but it never quite grabbed my attention the way it did this day. Kind of wish I had the good camera and lens but this cell phone shot will have to do for now.

This gallery is images shot at Arrowhead Golf Club, next to Roxborough State Park. When the fresh snow hits, it is one of my favorite locations to shoot.

Red Rocks on Ice

Red Rocks at Arrowhead

Whenever the weather changes, this is one of my go to places for captures I truly enjoy. The way the snow or ice dresses the landscape is spectacular to my eyes. I have been asked to submit the image on the left to a gallery show in March 2015 and am thrilled to have the opportunity. It is also available for sale thru Fine Art America.
