Boyd Lake Wintery Walk

Katie and I planned on going to Rocky Mountain National Park today, but because of some delays in some home improvement I was doing before we were going to leave and because of the wind in the park, we decided to go somewhere local. We went over and parked at Seven Lakes Park and walked along the West side of Boyd Lake. The weather was really nice, upper 40's when we got there and lower 50's when we got back to the car. It was a nice way to get out of the house since our original plan was changed.

Photo Notes:

This is usually not what it looks like in Colorado in January. We've had an unusually dry winter so far, but I'm sure more snow is in our future.

Last Leaf on the Tree

Last Leaf on the Tree

Photo Notes:

This had to be the last leaf on this tree. I decided to give out my new camera lens extensions a try to see if I could get a good macro of this and I was really impressed! The tube extensions work great, the only downside is that it makes the camera heavier and harder to hold (since it's longer). However, for $20 (and it was a Christmas gift, so really $0), it's a lot cheaper than a macro lens!

Photo Notes:

My goal for this walk was to use my extension tubes to get some cool macros. When I tried at home, I didn't really get any good photos (because I had nothing to take photos of). I knew that there would be some good shots outside though.

Photo Notes:

Even though it was 50 degrees outside (just like it has been for the past week), the water was still frozen and there were people ice fishing (look in the upper-right hand corner).
