Getting a post in with only an hour left to go in the day... this is a daily photo blog, ya gotta do what ya gotta do, even on busy days! Here are three photos I took of magnificent Pikes Peak on the same day, April 5th. The first one was taken at 1:35PM, while the sun was directly on it. I had noticed that a strong wind was causing the snow to fly off the summit. I love when it does that! So I grabbed a camera and headed for the overlook. Later in the day, I had an errand to run but noticed how dramatic the mountain looked, strongly backlit through the clouds. I curtailed my errand and headed back for the mesa. The shot was taken at 4:44PM. The last shot was taken as I was heading to meet friends for dinner downtown. I didn't have a real camera with me, so I just used my cell phone (it was taken from behind the wheel -- I checked for traffic, briefly stopped the car and snapped a photo through the windshield at 7:10PM). As you can see, the mountain had a beautiful rim of light, like a halo. Stupendous! Pikes Peak is always beautiful, but she really put on a good show for us that day!
