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!

South Platte River (Part 4)

Not to much to add to this pretty moment, so I'll just put it right here and let you admire it.

South Platte River (Part 3)

Another pretty moment along the banks of the South Platte River.

South Platte River (Part 2)

The South Platte has areas of whitewater and stretches that are shallow and calm. This was a great spot to just hang out and enjoy the sounds of the water gently lapping and the trees rustling in the wind.

South Platte River (Part 1)

After taking a few minutes to explore Painted Rocks Campground (see Saturday's post), Pat and I went for a scenic drive along the South Platte River. Here's a picturesque bluff overlooking the roadway. It'd be nice to have this view in your backyard! More pictures to come all week. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.

Sunday Style!

I spotted this casually well dressed shopper downtown a couple of weeks ago.

Garden of the Gods in Miniature

My friend Liz lives near the Painted Rocks Campground, north of Woodland Park. She's been telling me about it for months but I've never been able to find it. Finally I just asked her for directions, and it turned out to be laughably easy to locate. Very pretty place and I can't wait to explore it more (this is just a sampling). Do these pretty rock formations remind you of another place?

Which Way?

Pat and I went for a long drive in the mountains last week. First we wanted to check out the Painted Rocks Campground in the Pike National Forest, north of Woodland Park. After you drive past the rock formations (I'll show you those tomorrow), you find yourself in a neighborhood of sorts, but the homes are on large lots and most aren't visible from the road because of all the trees. What a beautiful, secluded place to live, even if it does require you to have a reliable 4x4 and you may still get snowed in from time to time! Here's a sign post pointing the way to all the neighbors' homes. You can't go any farther than this -- it's all private roads, and strangers aren't welcome.
