Back out to shoot more foliage on Saturday. Destination: the Peak to Peak Highway with former Examiner.com colleague and fellow photographer Kevin Staunton. Problem: We didn't realize so many routes west were still closed due to damage from the recent floods. We tried Coal Creek Canyon Road (72), Boulder Canyon Road (119) and Flagstaff Road before giving up, figuring God was trying to send us a message.
But on my way back home I decided to give Clear Creek Canyon Road (6) a shot and was successful. Sort of. Taryn had come with me, and when we finally arrived at my favorite vista just south of Ward I was dismayed to find that the aspens had almost all dropped their leaves already.
So did I just keep the camera in the car and head for home? Pfft.
Caribou Ranch Open Space.
Carousel of Happiness in Nederland yielded something a little different.
Spidey sense tingle as we were about to drive by. This was probably less than half a mile from the highway, but a completely unique view.
Black Hawk brought the drive to a close. Well, at least the photo-taking part of it. And even though the day hadn't gone at all as planned, being open to possibilities provided some shots I'm pretty happy with. Not to mention the chance to spend an afternoon with my daughter. :)
