The surprises you find! This little guy was hanging out near my vegetable garden. He nicely held still long enough to get his picture taken. Posted by Picasa

More pictures! What do ya know, the weather improves and there's all sorts of stuff to take pictures of again!

This batch was taken in the early morning (between 7:00AM and roughly 10:00AM) on May 13, 2006 in Eldorado Canyon , an area above Boulder, Colorado. Colorado is a beautiful place to live and these pictures are just a few examples of why.

Artist shot! I like the way this one works with the broken off branch almost exactly lined up with the main trunk and the break. Posted by Picasa

Just a nice picture looking down into a valley.  Posted by Picasa

Close-up of a branch, probably a spruce of some variety.  Posted by Picasa

Nice close-up on pine cones still on the branch. Posted by Picasa

Blue sky and a contrail from a plane. Gotta love Colorado in the spring-time! Posted by Picasa

Artist shot! This was taken about 9:30AM sun shining through the branches of a tree; probably a pine of some variety. Posted by Picasa

Mother Nature will find a way. This is a fir tree growing rom a crevasse in a very large boulder. Posted by Picasa

Wow, water, in this blog what are the odds. Pretty water fall, not very fall up the canyon. Posted by Picasa

The same picture, but this time I've used a "filter" my sunglasses. Looks neat! Posted by Picasa

No idea what the flower is, but it was growing up the side of the rock and makes a nifty shot. Posted by Picasa

Using my handy dandy "filter" still don't know what kind of flower this is. Posted by Picasa

Finally! Some new pictures. For the second year in a row, Denver has hosted an Open Doors event for buildings and areas not usually open to the public are accessible and many of them can be photographed. One of the areas we could not photograph was the Temple Buell Theater, but we did get a tour of a backstage areas, and we were allowed on the stage; what thrill! Enjoy the pictures! Below are pictures from the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, the Malo Mansion, the Governor's Mansion, and Coors Field.

Coors Field. It's baseball season, is there a prettier thing in the world in the spring other than a ball field? Posted by Picasa
