WOW!


Today Steve and I went to visit the banks, Post Office, Fowler Tribune, and City Hall, as well as picking up a few more items from the house for Mom's new home. Driving home from Fowler this evening this is part of the sunset I enjoyed. These photos were taken East of Pueblo.

Looking North toward Pikes Peak.



You definitely need to click on these to enlarge them.

Looking west toward the Spanish Peaks (Huahatolla) left, and Wet Mountains to the right. The highest peak in the Wet Mountains is Greenhorn Peak (Cuerno Verde).












Looking Northwest over Pueblo toward the Wet Mountains.













West toward Spanish Peaks and Wet Mountains a little later. La Veta, where Ricky Timms lives, has his gallery, and films The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson is in an unbelievably beautiful valley as the foot of the Spanish Peaks.

Spectacular! What a lovely experience this must have been; so glad you were able to capture and share -- I wouldn't have had my camera!

Amazing! These must be printed on fabric and used somehow....

Love seeing the Spanish Peaks from your perspective. I am used to seeing them from the south looking north...

If you go to my website
www.allisonannaller.com and
click on "Other Works" and then "Landscapes" page 2....in the upper left is a quilt that shows those Spanish Peaks in the distance. Put the curser over it and it will get bigger...called "Heading Out".
I love that place!!!!

What a spectacular show! I love it when God and Mother Nature get together and put on a show like that.

Fran, I missed checking blogs for a while, and didn't see the notice about your father. I'm so sorry. And resettling your mother is hard too. But isn't it wonderful to see a beautiful show in nature like these sunsets? Raises the spirit a bit.

Just looking at the photos fill me with awe. Having visited your area last summer, I can almost imagine the majesty of the moment.

Fran: thanks for your comment on my blog. I've enjoyed looking at yours ... you also have some great photos.
My condolences on the death of your father. My parents are 92 and 91. It is a difficult time.
