~Shades of Blue…

 

Looking west. We walked along the Big Thompson River today. It was a gorgeous Colorado day. Fifty degrees and partly cloudy.

This photo was taken yesterday. The clouds formations were very different today.

 

A Great Blue Heron. A funny place for a Heron to perch.

 

Reeds, a pond, mountains and a Great Blue Heron in the background.

 

An old Bullocks Oriole nest.

If you have never read about how an Oriole builds their nest, you should check it out.  Nests

Where are the Orioles today that build this nest? Will they return to the same nest in the Spring? I hope so.

My very favorite Scrub-Jay. “Where are my peanuts?” He wants to know.

Do you have any “shades of blue” you would like to share?

A magical few moments,

on a lovely walk.

The water was calm,

 the clouds were showing off.

A little fall color remains

before winter’s grip.

 

Beautiful reflections of the Cottonwood trees.

 

This photo is a panoramic shot using my Apple iPhone 11.

 

Long’s Peak in the background.

 

Howard walking along the path.

 

I love the plane trails in the sky and the reflection of them in the water.

 

You can see the sun’s reflection in this photo.

a day with friends

a lovely walk

uplifts the heart

 

I took a walk with friends in the mountains west of Loveland, and captured our experience with my camera. It was a lovely walk along the Big Thompson River.

The beautiful Big Thompson River

The flowers were beautiful, the river was roaring, and the conversation wonderful. We were on a mission to find an American Dipper, but it was not to be. Next time!
