Sand Dunes

I have now been to the Great Sand Dunes National Park in all seasons and at different times of day. It fascinates me how each time has been different. This is what makes Photography interesting to me. No matter how many times you use the same subject matter, you can always find something different.

Growl….

This morning I went to a local reservoir here in the San Luis Valley. I had everything I needed. I started to take some good shots and my battery died. I was like cool, I can go grab my spare from the camera bag. I replace batteries and low and behold my second battery was DEAD. GROWL!!! There I was was gorgeous views and my camera was out of commission.  All I had left was my phone. Here are a few shots I took before my camera batteries died.

Myself, father and brother in law and little nephew went to a Colorado Rockies game. They were playing the New York Mets, which was an added bonus for me. Growing in New Jersey I grew.  up rooting for the Mets. (I also cheer for the Red Sox, due to family ties). It was a fun day trip for us MEN!!! My three companions drove to Denver for the game. I waited to see if my wife was actually going to go into labor with our third child. It was only False labor. Once that was decided I hopped onto an airplane and flew to Denver. I however barely made the plane, I was running a few errands in town and I drive up and the plane had just landed. I come racing threw security(good thing the TSA know me) and jump on the airplane. It also left 20 mins early.  But I finally arrived in Denver and was picked up at the airport and we drove downtown. We wandered the 16th street mall and just had a grand old time.

We arrive at the ball park about two hours before game time and we watched the Mets take batting practice. Unfortunately for me  the game was a one sided affair and the Mets lost. Oh Well, it was still a fun trip.
