This is not my favorite time of year – I don’t like the dark and the cold and my body and mind want to curl up in a dark cave and dream. Following the advice of a dear friend, I am looking for the beauty in this winter season. Here’s a selection of photographs I took yesterday at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. I wanted to share with you some photos I took on Christmas Day. This is an old truck that my uncle has been restoring. It has been lovingly cared for and is drivable now, but he has kept the antique patina of it with its old paint and wear and tear. Enjoy and Happy New Year in 2015.
Are you looking for unique cards to send to family and friends? Are you searching for a gift for a loved one? All of my photographs are available as cards or prints. Different print sizes are available as well as canvas prints.
Here are some photos from Christmases past to give you some card ideas. New images are on the way.
It’s my favorite time of year. The mountain sides are awash in yellow and red-gold pockets amongst green pine. The skies are a rich and deep blue and the days are perfect for hiking and fishing and just communing with nature. These pictures were taken in the Empire Valley, just south of Leadville on Hwy 24.
After Rome, our group to a bus to Assisi to visit the resting places of St. Francis and St. Clare. The town of Assisi was a nice respite from the busyness of Rome. I just wish we had been able to stay longer. The following pictures were taken on my walks through the winding streets of this medieval hill town.
On April 26, the day after the Canonization Mass, we were able to visit the Chapel of the Martyrs at the Vatican and then sing at Pope St. John Paul II tomb in St. Peters. On a later day we were also able to tour the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museum (no pictures allowed) and the Scavi. These are some pictures taken around Vatican City.
