black & white sunday: local watering hole

 

The source of water for the residents of Fort Collins, CO comes from large areas of land that drain snowmelt and rainfall waters to the Upper Cache la Poudre River, Big Thompson River, and Horsetooth Reservoir. 

While walking around Horsetooth during this past winter, I was drawn to the composition of these elements of the shoreline… rocks, ice, water, and sky.

black & white sunday: natural

 

There are pauses between the showers of the outer world,

But there is no time when my sleeves, wet with tears, are dry.
