This snowy pasture is close to where I live. I drive past and ride my bike past this spot regularly and think nothing of it. But when we get a fresh snow I'll go out early to see if there are some interesting photos to be made. I practice photography mostly when I travel and the sites around me every day rarely grab my attention only because I have become accustomed to them. So when my environment changes even a little bit and shifts my perspective I try to take advantage. All it took this day was a crisp morning with a fresh blanket of snow.
If you've never been cycling in Colorado but you'd like to; consider joining the cycling tour in September to photograph fall colors in the mountains of Colorado.
