“I am a survivor”

“I am a survivor. You can throw me in the jungle, and I’m going to come out with a fur coat, and a headband I made out of some leaves.”

A rain cloud in Longmont, Colorado, on July 15, 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?

(Lyrics by Pink Floyd, slightly edited by me. The photo is of a rain cloud in Longmont, Colorado, on July 15, 2021.)

Sunset, July 14, 2021

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

Rural Colorado, June, 27, 2021

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.

Three photos of a Colorado “Pink Moon” morning

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:

A snow white tree, Louisville, Colorado

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.

An Alaskan day in 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.

Snowy trees, Louisville, Colorado

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.

March, 2021 snowstorm (Longmont, Colorado)

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 Tree Holding The Moon Over The Rockies”

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.

Snow on the Rocky Mountains, southeast of Boulder

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.
