Random Local Scenes

08Sep15

Moving from Southern New Jersey to the Western Slopes of Colorado has been exciting to say the least… and a lot of work. Emptying our house of 27 years was a huge task in itself and even with a dumpster and sale, we managed to move more than 10,000 pounds of stuff… twice. Once from New Jersey to a Colorado storage facility and then from storage into our new house on August 15. During the process I took my camera out a few times while exploring my beautiful, new surroundings. It was difficult for me to really get ‘into the zone’ with getting settled the priority. Now unpacked, feeling at home and with Fall upon us I am excited about all the photo ventures that await! Here is a random selection of some local scenes I have explored so far.

This is the view of Ridgway from Loghill Mesa
where our house is located. The mountains of Ouray
are in the distance about 12 miles away.

    All beautiful. I LOVE the basin and chimney rock locations!

    • Thanks for looking Deb. We’ll go to those places when you come for a visit. We can see Chimney Rock from our living room. That range (the Cimarrons) really lights up just before sunset.

  2. Beautiful Denise!

    Hi Denise, These are beautiful. I really like the Mountain Cabin. It shows the true scale of the amazing countryside. And the Alpine Glow is amazing.

    • Hi Joe — Yes, the cabin adds scale doesn’t it. Without it the viewer would have no idea how big that mountain is. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  9. What beautiful views you have, the best to you in your new home.

    Lots of beauty to explore. Liked Mountain Crossroads the best — it so reminiscent of the west — another beautiful vista just around the bend…

  11. Wow, gorgeous landscapes, Denise. A far cry from South Jersey! You must be pinching yourself daily.😉

  12. Oh WOW! Worth a couple of moves I’d say. Amazing landscapes.
