Having to move down from the mountains to the Denver area, City of Lakewood, was not easy. I was looking forward to shooting the fall colors of this area and then an early snow storm rolled in, with temps in the 20s. Almost all the leaves froze and turned brown. I decided to go out anyway and see what I could find. These photos are the results of my search.

  Went to Chatfield State Park to photograph the Hunters Moon. Using a compass I located the direction of the moon rise. As it came up, I notice a pelican moving across my viewfinder. I waited as it approached the reflection area but then it just turned around, what the heck!

I got a chance to go out and take photos of the fall colors in the Denver foothills area. My college roommate, Rob Brown, was passing through town. Rob is also a photographer so we went out on a couple of day trips. The colors were pretty nice at Guanella Pass, Squaw Pass and Kenosha Pass.

It has been almost 4 months since I made a new post. My cancer really controls my life. I had to move from my mountain home of 31 years. We moved to a city of Lakewood. It's just 5 minutes from the hospital. We do have a nice park right next to us, Kendrick Lake. Walk over there last night and took these images. Hope to get out more!

Colorado - Papaleo - Best Photos of 2018.




























  While fighting my terminal bone marrow cancer, I was able to get out a little in 2018 and the above photos are my favorite. Now that the holidays are over, I hope to get out on more shoots.
