Ken Papaleo: X Marks the Shot: December 2015

Colorado - My Favorite Photos of the Year, 2015.

     I did a lot of freelance this year, which is good but I wasn't able to post many blogs.
                                       Below are my favorite photos in no particular order.

Colorado - Great Sand Dunes National Park - Winter

  Recently I went on a photo shoot at the Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado. Not ever being at the dunes in the winter and the Geminid Meteor Shower peaking, would make this trip enjoyable. The first day I shot was nice and sunny, then is snowed at night, changing the look of the landscape. Some of this blog is going to show, approximately, the same locations before and after the snow. 

Meteor to the right, no idea what those are to the left, no blinking lights
