Folks think of Colorado as the snow capital of the world, yet we can golf as likely as ski on Christmas day.  This is a shot of what I'm dreaming about - a nice dumping of fresh snow from a trip to Breckenridge a number of years ago.  A few feet would be nice right [...]

Welsh Angel

Every once in a while, a quick snapshot turns out to be far more than expected.  I snapped this of my wife on a whim while we were walking down the street in Llandudno, Wales.  Her family has roots there, and we'd been visiting - it's an incredibly peaceful city, just the right place to [...]
