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!

Road trip to Aspen (part 1)

Over the weekend I traveled to Aspen with my friend Autumn to help her shoot a wedding. We avoided I-70 traffic by taking the route that goes over Independence Pass, which is a drive I haven't taken in a few years. It's so beautiful! There's a spot at the summit for you to pull over and walk to an area that has a breathtaking view. Breathtaking in more ways than one, actually -- the elevation at that point is 12,095 feet above sea level, twice the elevation of Colorado Springs! The air is quite thin at that altitude, and it's also windy and cold, even in the height of summer. Here are a few pictures from our brief stop at the summit of the Continental Divide. Tomorrow I'll share more.

Here's the view from the scenic overlook. Spectacular!

Here's me! I've made this drive a few times over the years, and consequently have a collection of pictures of myself standing in front of this sign :^)

I think, having had been over the continental divide in places, that there's something about that line that just demands we stop and take pictures. A beautiful spot, Tamera!

Tamera said...

You're so right, William! :^)

There you are! Cute photo! I've always wanted to go to Four Corners and put my hands and feet on them!

Bibi I've been to the four corners (years ago) but I didn't do that. I feel like I need to go back there just so I can get that picture, ha ha!
