Here's a picture I took in April during my visit to Estes Park, Colorado. I think it shows some interesting details when viewed in full screen mode.

I saw this aspen tree earlier this month when I was walking my dogs near Altona Middle School in Longmont, Colorado. I think the picture looks a bit like it has failed a red-green colour blindness test, although this is an accurate depiction of what it actually looked like.

The picture was taken with my iPhone 5. The phone is wearing out, although the camera still works well.

Here's a picture I took back in August of an owl that was temporarily living in our weeping willow. The squirrels and our dogs were not happy with this arrangement, but the owl only stayed a few days.

Here's a picture I took in a park near my house in Longmont, Colorado on January 10. Most of the snow is now gone. It was taken using my iPhone 5 using the HDR feature, but without any other editing.

For #treetuesday, here are two maple trees from near my house in Longmont, Colorado. They have a habit of dropping Canadian flags all over the ground.

This was taken with my iPhone 5 and edited with #snapseed.

Here's a sunrise shot from my walk yesterday morning near my house in Longmont, Colorado. As usual, this was taken with my iPhone 5 and processed in Snapseed.

I have had a lack of good material for posts recently, but I am still hoping this is about to change.

For #treetuesday, here's a picture I took during my recent trip to Cambridge (UK). My host, +Timothy Gowers, identified this tree as a horse chestnut. In the autumn, the horse chestnut sheds its distinctive large nut-like seeds, which are called conkers.

Just behind the tree is King's College, Cambridge, where the pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing was an undergraduate in the early 1930s.

March the First

This is the first sunrise of March, which means it's time to wish “happy St David's Day” to any Welsh people reading this. It is a Welsh custom to wear a daffodil on the first of March, although as you might guess from this picture, it's too early to see any daffodils growing in Longmont, Colorado.

More information on St David's Day is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_David's_Day

I took this photo with my iPhone 5 and edited it with Snapseed.

Here's an iPhone picture from a walk with the dogs in the late afternoon a few days ago. Yesterday, a lot of this snow melted, turning the paths into ice rinks of doom.

Happy New Year!

My wife's parents are headed to Arizona to escape the cold Colorado weather. Or maybe not: this is the view today from Catalina, Arizona.
