Over the last week or two, no matter what else I do during the day or night — such as working on the Scala Cookbook v2, for Scala 3 — I’ve been taking the time to watch the beautiful sunsets here in Colorado. This is the sunset in Longmont, Colorado on July 18, 2021.

Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
Strangers passing in the street
By chance, two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can?

This was the sunset in Longmont, Colorado on July 14, 2021. I missed most of it, but caught it right here near the end.

I recently visited some family, and this is one of the photos from the drive home, somewhere in rural Colorado on June, 27, 2021. I don’t remember my exact location at this time, but it was right before or after I passed through Limon.
Today (April 8, 2020) is a day off for me, so I woke up at 4:30am and went up on the roof of the apartment complex garage, and took a few photos of the Pink Moon. These are some small versions of the best Moon photos, along with one of the Sun, which was coming up behind me from the east as the Moon set in the west over the Rocky Mountains.
First, the “Pink Moon” setting over the Rockies:
Here’s a photo of a snow white tree in Louisville, Colorado, one day in March, 2018. I was headed to a doctor’s appointment in Louisville, so this was probably somewhere between 7-8:30am. The full size image (not shown here) may be the prettiest photo I’ve ever taken in Colorado.
This is a photo of some white-tipped trees on a cloudy, overcast day in Louisville, Colorado, March, 2016 (a few miles east and south of Boulder, Colorado).

March 23, 2021, a day after the horrible assault rifle mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, gave a us a day that looked a bit like Alaska. The ground here in Colorado never looks like Alaska, but today the mist in the mountains and overcast sky looked like Alaska, and made me feel a bit more like I was at home here.
This is a sunset from my old apartment complex in Broomfield, Colorado, on March 17, 2020.

This is a photo of some snowy trees in Louisville, Colorado, on March 27, 2018. I had to get up early to go to a physical therapy appointment and I was rewarded with this view.
Over this past weekend, March 13-14, 2021, Denver, Colorado and the surrounding areas had the fourth or fifth largest snowstorm in recorded history. Before the snow stopped last night I saw that Denver had already had 24.1” of snow. This is a photo of my car and some neighbors cars here in Longmont, Colorado.

The hospital was mostly empty yesterday morning (March 10, 2020). When I went to the Imaging Department, the technician was standing at the front desk waiting for me, his only patient. The grocery store was out of TP. But the Moonset around 6:45am was beautiful.
Here’s a great view of the Rocky Mountains and part of Boulder, Colorado, as seen from my apartment in Broomfield on December 21, 2013.
I can’t remember the history of this image, but the metadata tells me that I created it on May 13, 2014. It looks like I took a slightly zoomed-in photo with an iPhone 5s, because that also appears in the metadata. This was the view I had from my second apartment in Broomfield, Colorado.

This is a view in Rocky Mountain National Park, on January 3, 2018. Sister #2 and mom was here, and we went into the park.
