Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Fleur de lis

I'm not a big springtime person; my favorite time of year is autumn. Spring at 6,000 feet above sea level is especially challenging. It truly comes in fits and starts. Today was freezing, but tomorrow is supposed to be 80 degrees! We've seen nothing but rain in the last week or so. I'm looking forward to seeing the sun. It's June and I still haven't turned off the heat in my house!

The one thing I love about spring in the Springs is that, like everywhere else, the flowers finally come back. We have such long winters here that it's really nice to see the daffodils make their appearance, followed by lilies of the valley. Last come the irises. There are purple irises everywhere in our city -- they seem to really thrive here. I noticed these beauties today as I was driving home from my friend Jeannette's house, and had to pull over to get a snapshot. Pretty!

Very pretty Tamera! Your weather sounds wonderful to me because it's so hot here already.

It's 53 degrees -- where's my 80?!?
