All that glitters.......

Light in my living room 2

Late afternoon light that greets me when I reach home after a day's work is enough for me to forget my weariness and dash for my camera, the moment I get in from the front door :)

Isn't it fun to bring a creative eye to subjects that we see every day around us! I really like your composition here...

I love how you see the details in everything. I would never have noticed these things. You can find good shots everywhere!

I usually go around and take pics of stuff before we move. It NEVER has occured to me to do it so creatively!

After looking at your photographs, I realize I'm missing out and I should take a closure look at things.

As the 1st photo unscrolls it looks like a close up of raindrops, then you see they are beads - really makes the viewer look.

ah, i love them!
but it's so unfair that i never get to see that kind of light at my place.
i'm either working late , out on the river, driving to meet a friends, or too drunk to be home.
Not that I keep the house looking anything like that anyway. :)

The last picture was very high on the cutemeter too!

Hey Moi,

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. Mesa Verde is pretty far away from Rocky Mountain NP, so make sure you have enough time to do both properly. One of the most important things is to stay hydrated, with the higher altitude, it can make you very tired and you can get altitude sickness. Not everyone gets it, but it is fairly common, the best thing to do is to drink a lot of water. Watch out for speeding, they are very strict here. Both ASH and I got speeding tickets near Mesa Verde. If you are going to be driving from Denver to Mesa Verde, definitely take the mountain pass roads, they are breathtaking. Depending on time, Colorado National Monument is beautiful, as is Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Make sure if you like beer to try some local micro brews, they are excellent. But watch out for them with the higher altitudes. Mesa Verde has tours down into some of the structures, and would be worth the hike, but are guided tours you have to pay for. There is one you can reach for free near the museum. RMNP has really great views and the road is full of switchbacks and serious grades! If you drive through CO Springs, you should stop by Garden of the Gods, or go up Pikes Peak. Both totally worth the extra miles. Avoid the cliff dwellings in CO Springs, they are fake and total tourist trap. If there is anything else I can answer Let me know! Hope you love CO as much as I do!

I know exactly what you mean! You can't not rush for the camera!
Yesterday afternoon's bright bursts of sunlight through the clouds were so fleeting I had to rush out and 'snap'.....but the one photo I managed to get was a little blurry. Disappointing! Perhaps I'll get another shot at it today...or tomorrow...or... :)
Your colors and light are glorious!

This close up is just splendid!
