Pine Beetles doing their thing

This pictures are from a trip to Colorado in December. Among other great adventures and stories, a friend told us about this county's (and a lot of CO and WY) trouble with the pine beetles killing all the trees. Clearing forests with ease. Nothing I have read about seems to provide any substantial solution. Here is hoping nature steps in, with several days of -20 degree weather. That seems to be the only way. Here are some views of the landscape. It still looks pretty to me.

Good times with those snow shoes.

Family Times

So here are a few of the projects that were a lot of fun, as we wrapped up 2009 and got rolling with the new year.

Cloudy, cold winter is quite beautiful too. I love to feel the air.

Sticky Fog

The last month has been good with plenty of family time and photography sessions and cold weather. I plan on posting some images from the fun families I photographed over the holidays, but for now, here is some frost on a local plant. Yesterday was a foggy day, and the cold made some of it stick. Very pretty to see all the trees, shrubs and grass highlighted in white.
