The South Platte near Iliff, CO this morning. Lots of ice floating.

It's looking like we will have cold for the next week and more, so I was looking for something warmer. I came across this one that I took last August while we were waiting for the eclipse to start.

Two more great picks Rick. The second one made me smile..what a peaceful spot to watch the eclipse. I'm curious if the animals had any reaction to it?

I didn't notice anything from those in this photo, but shortly before the start of the moon passing, several flocks of birds came from different directions to apparently shelter in the trees in back of the empty farmhouse where we were watching from the front yard. It seemed too well timed to just be a coincidence, and within about 5 minutes, the eclipse began.

Nice spot for eclipse viewing, RP. Our field was plain grass, no horses, no goats - unless it's OK for me to call Himself an Old Goat.

The current weather situation in much of the country reminded me of this shot I took some years ago. We got about 7-inches of snow, a rare thing, and I had an Audi allroad quattro, so I was able to get way outside of where most people could go, and got this shot in pristine snow, early in the morning.

BTW, that is not a greyscale image, it is RGB color.

Nice shot Casey. I've always found winter photography to be difficult. Too many earth tones for my eye. I like natural landscapes, but I like to have at least some happy colors in them too. Winter is too brown in Colorado most of the time.

Not a crocus, but a warmer image. I scanned this shot of lowly dandelion from an Ektachrome transparency I took nearly 40 years ago.



Then a lily in an African river in the Okavongo Delta in Botswana:


And the Colorado State Flower, the Blue Columbine - like the dandelion, shot on transparency film about 40 years ago:

Nice photos, guys. Although your shot is captivating, CD, I prefer RP's right now. When your thermostat seems to be stuck in single-digits, it's nice to be reminded that warmer days will show up again.

Cheryl, we think Loverly is lovely, too. Bonus: she's just as pretty "inside" as she looks. We're very blessed in that we have two kind, compassionate kids.
