I have been wondering if the Pasque flowers were still in bloom along the foothills so today I was able to get away and go in search of these little beauties. Yes they are still in abundant bloom (at least in my spot) and to my amazement, my daughter Sofia expressed interest in going shooting as well! A Win-Win situation!!
I’m anxious to load up my daughter’s captures from my Sony a6000 to see how she did…. Time to upload that card now….

Today’s image was made about 2 miles north of my house here in Erie on a cold, snowy day back in early February of this year. I love all the negative space the snow adds/hides in this image. Here too are the before and after shots (or in this case, original and b/w) combined into one animated GIF. Something different, cool or whatever…

Day 2 / 5 Black and White Photo Challenge, nominated/challenged by Steve Parker.
One of my favorite locations to shoot – Chautauqua Park in Boulder, home of the Flatirons as these rock faces are named. Here’s to hoping how the Flatirons will look when this arctic blast of cold shivers into Colorado this week. This image was captured in early February 2011, and, if I remember correctly, Kevin Barnes and Steve can verify, the temperature this particular morning was a bitter 5 degrees with a sub-zero wind chill. (What was I thinking, leaving a warm bed?)
Today I nominated/challenged Andy Garza, and April Fischer. It’s optional, but try to post 1 BW image a day for 5 straight days, and each day nominate one+ person to the challenge. Good luck!
