Day Tripper - 3 - HWY 74 goes through the foothills near Denver. Living at 8400 feet in the Rockies you would think we would get a lot of snow, not so this year. So when we had a small snow and fog storm, I left early in the morning. I liked the way this shoot turned out. When you only have a short time to work, you have to look harder, no waiting for the next day.

A nice wave cloud formed in the late afternoon. Sometimes they explowd with color, around sunset, so Pam and I headed off to Squaw Pass. The entrance is just 1/2 hour from my home, we left late afternoon and were home by 7 pm. The wave cloud never changed to any nice color and the shoot wasn't very productive. Here are a few images.

With my terminal MDS, my blog postings have suffered. Not feeling as well and not finding money to do longer trips, has caused this to happen. For awhile, I'm starting a new series called "Day Tripper". My wife, Pam and I will be going on shoots that we can do in one day. Good thing I live in Colorado! The first is Garden of the Gods, in Colorado Springs. We left the house a 1pm and got home 7:30 pm. The drive was two hours, one way. The light was flat with a crummy sky. Not until after sunset did the sky turn nice and I got my shot.
