Lily Pads at Sunset, San Juan Mountains, Colorado

Doing a bit of a throwback to the days of summer and Colorado. When I first arrived home, many of my favorite images featured dramatic light and expensive views. However, as time has passed, this one particular image has really stuck with me as a favorite. Despite pink clouds in the sky and mountain ranges in the background, I decided to focus on this small tarn with its beautiful shapes, patterns, and colors. Over the next three days, my favorite area in West Virginia is slated for 7-13 inches of snow. I think it’s time to bust out the warm clothing and make my first “winter” trip of the season.
