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!

Palmer Lake

Palmer Lake is a picturesque little hamlet a few miles north of Colorado Springs. It's part of an area generally known as the Tri-Lakes, which also includes Monument. You can see that it's a pretty place! I've only blogged about Palmer Lake once before (with pictures by my friend Jennifer), so last week when Pat and I had a rare idle afternoon ahead of us, we decided to drive up there and take a few pictures. It was a great way to spend some free time. The lake was refilled recently, after a few years of depressing emptiness. It's been restored back to its natural charm, and the waterfowl are just beginning to rediscover the place. So are the anglers! I didn't know this, but there's also a Frisbee golf course right next to the lake, a donation from the Palmer Lake Restaurant Group. A handful of teenagers were playing a round while we were there.

It's nice that the residents of Palmer Lake finally have their lake again. If I lived up there, I'd spend a lot of time just hanging around in this spot with a good book and a camera.

There were only a few ducks on the lake, and no geese. I think it might be another couple of years before the waterfowl return in full force.
Nice view to the south! In the foreground is the disc golf course.

A little bit of local history for you :^)

Two of my students live in Colorado Springs, or nearby. Gary Foley and Rachel Lackey. It is beautiful country. Another friend, for many years, was also a calligrapher, like I was, and his name was James Hayes.
