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!

Skywatch Friday


Living here, it's only natural that I take a lot of pictures of the the foothills and mountains just a few miles to the west, and of course I like to share those pictures here on the blog. But I rarely show you the view to the east. It's exactly the opposite: flat! The farther east you drive, the flatter it gets. This photo was taken within city limits.  Colorado Springs has grown exponentially eastward over the last couple of decades, because there's only so far you can go up the side of a giant mountain -- but there's plenty of room on the prairie, with no end in sight!

The photo itself is amazing and the commentary helps us imagine the context. Thanks!

Now that is flat! Kind of reminds me of south Florida without trees.

Terrific shot!

On a clear day you can see forever!

My sister and her husband live southeast of Colorado Springs and when I visit I spend as much time taking pics east as west. Yes the mountains are beautiful but so is the range land.

Expansion across the prairie! Nice open road shot, I like it!

Nice shot ... the black&white reinforces the flatness.
