The prairies of Colorado are glorious, even in the midst of a dry winter. I love the colors of the dried plants and bare trees, especially in the golden light of late afternoon. Here are photos I took yesterday on a bird walk at Barr Lake State Park.
The temperature dropped nearly twenty degrees during the hour we were out. The sun makes a big difference to the temperature in such a dry climate.
We saw an unusual cloud formation (in the center of the next photo). It looked like someone took an electric beater to the clouds.
I am glad the winter solstice has come and gone. While I love the look of winter, I am ready for longer days and more sunlight.
What do you love about winter?
