Camping at North Sterling Reservoir State Park

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.

Day 5 of 5 – Black and White Challenge

Day 5 / 5 – #5dayblackandwhitechallenge, nominated/challenged by Steve Parker.

This image was captured this past September up in the Clear Creek Reservoir canyon on the way to Winfield, just south of Twin Lakes, Colorado when I was out capturing the #ColoradoGold. I believe this cabin is the Davis cabin, situated right alongside County Road 390 near Vicksburg.

This is an HDR black and white image. Processed in #Lightroom and Photomatix Pro.

This concludes my 5-day Black and White Challenge. It’s been fun and I’ve seen a lot of excellent imagery as a result of this challenge. In parting, I’d like to nominate Mark Mortensen and Scott Carlin to post one BW image/day for five days. And each day nominate someone new to carry this challenge on…. Participation is entirely optional, but I encourage you to try.
