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!

Theme day: heights


The first of the month is Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers! It's been a couple of months since I've participated, and I must confess I didn't actually know what today's theme was until after I took this picture yesterday. How very convenient that this month's theme is heights!  I just thought it was a nice day to take a picture of Pikes Peak from the overlook on Mesa, but as it turns out, this shot fits the bill quite nicely. We don't really have any tall buildings in Colorado Springs, thus no particularly great vantage point to illustrate "heights", but at 14,110 feet above sea level, Pikes Peak is the indisputably mightiest, height-iest thing around!  This is one of the most gorgeous views in our city. The large red rock formation in the foreground is part of the Garden of the Gods, and this particular formation is called Kissing Camels. Can you see why?

To see more height-themed photos from bloggers all over the world, click HERE.  And, since it's Friday and this photo shows plenty of sky, let's call it a Skywatch Friday picture too -- if you'd like to see more Skywatch Friday pictures from all over, click HERE.

I see Pikes Peak is showing some white. I live in Breckenridge and it's been snowing hard all day. Great to see the red rocks of Garden of the Gods - a place I enjoy visiting.
