Very Good Morning

It has been a very good morning, indeed. Not because of McDonald's. But I did have to chuckle at their sign because it certainly described my morning.

I was up earlier than normal, heading across town to meet a new friend.

good morning-1

Pardon the periphery, but it's a beautiful site to see Pikes Peak and the full moon just as the sun peeks over the horizon. It even makes traffic and the surrounding urban-ness fade away when you have this type of scenery available on a regular basis.

As I went farther west, I was able to capture part of Kissing Camels (in Garden of the Gods) with the moon. There were a lot of people stopping at the side of the road for similar shots.

Those are the real colors, no Photoshop adjustments. It's just that gorgeous here.

And another one with Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, and the moon.

good morning-3

All so I could meet Sarah for coffee.


That would be Sarah Danaher, of Ampersand Photography.

Sarah is lovely, friendly, authentic, and sweet. When I discovered that she's teaching a photography workshop here, I emailed her to see if she would want to meet. Her schedule's packed, but she squeezed me in early this morning. We had a wonderful time visiting and getting to know a little more about each other. Then it was back to work for her and back home for me. What a joy to make a new friend, particularly a sister in Christ.

It was a very blessed morning, indeed.

It IS just that gorgeous there!! My daughter is there for a while visiting her grandparents. Thanks for the link for Sarah... we've been thinking of getting some photos of Victoria done since we never did anything for her "graduation" and Colorado is one of her most favorite places :-)

Colorado is definitely gorgeous but I'll stick with the Northwest. :)

Colorado is so pretty is this Colorado Springs? I loved the way the mountains surrounded the whole town. Can you find out where your friend purchased her 'purple ruffled sweater top' I would love to get one. thanks for sharing a bit of your morning.

So beautiful! I was just up at Garden of the Gods and the Glenn Eyrie Castle/retreat area. Our church held our woman's retreat at the castle. It was so gorgeous!!

What gorgeous pictures! I love driving west at sunset and seeing the beautiful views of Pikes Peak. We really are fortunate to live here!
