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.
I chose this particular image for the Thursday’s Special Challenge for two reasons 1) there are two birds’ eyes (they become visible when zoomed in at 120%) and 2) it seems that the sitting pelican has a viewpoint about sharing the log…
It began last summer…an obsession with the globe-shaped plumed heads of the dandelion and salisify. While both are rejected by landscape artists, these “wishies'” unique characteristics result in amazing macro images.
