Why there are not more photos

54 degrees North Latitude vs 39 degrees North Latitude... That's the difference between Walley, Lancashire UK and Colorado Springs, CO USA. What it means is noticeably longer dark winter nights, shorter days that go with them. That it has been mostly cloudy, often rainy, and occasionally snowy, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Via Iceland

The flight was not as long as some journeys to visit my middle child: only 6 1/2 hours from Denver to Reykjavik, then about 30 minutes standing around between planes, and another 2 1/2 hours to Manchester. The drive to Whalley was another half hour or so. One thing to take special note of when... Sign in to see full entry.

Castlewood Canyon State Park

https://www.flickr.com/gp/therovingeye/Qf5h6t Some more wild Colorado Autumn shots, taken yesterday at Castlewood Canyon State Park. It was a gorgeous day, warmer than anyone expected it to be, and just a few wispy clouds overhead. Looking at the first photo in the series, the furthest one, clicking... Sign in to see full entry.

Rocky Mountain autumn

Here are the best of yesterday's photos taken on a most lovely October 1st as the aspens shivered in shades of bright yellow and peach, some trees shading from green through yellow to palest orange. They show a burst of color on the evergreen slopes, or a swath across a landscape, or a own a patch... Sign in to see full entry.

Rockies: First snowfall on the mountain

First sign of the coming winter: snowfall on Pike's Peak overnight. I was up at dawn to catch the sight before the sun came over the eastern horizon, and after. Mostly, though--the snow! In August. https://www.flickr.com/gp/therovingeye/FGhUf5 Sign in to see full entry.

A few new skies

Some sunsets are glorious and dramatic, others are soft and simply gorgeous! Here also, a couple of shots of this year's summer deck garden. I've taken away some of the old chairs and brought in one that swings from a hook in the ceiling. And here is a butterfly, a lovely tiger swallowtail.... Sign in to see full entry.

Just booked my flight...

I'm going back to England in January for 3 weeks, to celebrate Marika's birthday and her graduation from her Master's program, and of course to meet my granddaughter who is expected in mid-December. Also exciting, I booked on Icelandair, an overnight flight. This means several interesting... Sign in to see full entry.

Pueblo, CO

Most Americans know of Pueblo, Colorado only if they have ever sent away for government brochures, but there's a lot more in this town than US Govt. brochure warehouses. When Charlie was doing murder mystery dinner theater, they had a gig down in Pueblo. I drove him to the venue at the old Pueblo... Sign in to see full entry.

Over the hills, not too far away

Treated myself to a half-day road trip today, going from Palmer Lake, CO westward, just exploring, enjoying discovering a landscape I have not seen before. It goes from open pastureland with, mostly, horses in large and small herds, to a more hilly landscape punctuated with grey boulders. There is a... Sign in to see full entry.
