Spent Memorial Day weekend camping at North Sterling State Park in the NE corner of Colorado. I would highly recommend staying at this campground too. Beautiful surroundings, clean and well kept campground without all the riff-raff and noise found at Jackson Lake State Park.
We got an extra surprise Saturday night with the highly unexpected appearance of the Aurora Borealis to boot! Very faint, but check the bottom two images. Notice the movement of the lighter, cloud-like waves.

I was feeling the urge to get outside today, so I made a quick sunrise trip to our Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. And it turned out to be just what I needed. The back/north 8-mile loop had just opened and lucky for me, the bison were grazing in their north pen, so the ONLY way to see them in good light was to drive the loop. The bison shots below were captured during the last quarter mile of that loop, but no way to get to them without traveling the 7.75 miles around.

Here are a few more images from my stay at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara last September. I had a few sunsets to myself and I’d wonder on down to the shore looking for these types of compositions, especially with the 10-24 wide angle lens I had rented for the launch event.
It was a very peaceful excursion, although I got kind of worried as the tide was rolling in and every 4-5 wave would crash a little closer to my gear.
What do you think of these?
