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!

Snow? What snow?


Yes, that's snow you're seeing. It was 33° F and breezy when I took this picture a few days ago in Monument Valley Park. The photo of the cyclist below was taken a few minutes later. This man was stretching before a run, so I asked him for a photo because he's the perfect illustration of a die-hard, sporty Coloradoan! Snow? What snow? One of the things I love about living here is the dedication so many of our residents have to their chosen sport. Rain or shine, snow, sleet, even hail... it doesn't matter what the weather is doing, you'll always find runners and cyclists out there doing their thing for the sheer joy of it. Not to mention rock climbers, ice climbers, skiers, snowboarders, hikers, skateboarders, golfers, mountain bikers, snowshoers, tennis players -- if it's an outdoor sport, you will find multitudes of enthusiasts here, and they all seem to be impervious to the weather!

As for this guy, told me that his name is Craig Young and he's a former world class Master Runner. He runs every single day, no matter what. He's not going to let a little snow stop him. In fact, he hasn't missed a day since June 29, 2008. Now that's dedication!
