I took this photo when I was on a short vacation in Colorado back in October. This shot specifically was taken in Nederland, a small town outside of Boulder in the mountains. I love the leaves and the white bark of the aspens.
This is actually the very first photo I took in this year's colors photo challenge, back when I was looking for Aquamarine. It wasn't at close to a match, but I held onto it, hoping it'd come into use later. I think it works nicely for sky blue.
This is one of my favorite buildings in Los Angeles, the Disney Concert Hall. I love all the different angles and the way the sky reflects. It's supposed to look like a rose if you are able to view it from above, Mrs. Disney's favorite flower.
Over Labor Day weekend on my traditional trip to Seattle, Galen and I decided to take a short destination trip first and headed out to Port Townsend (see earlier posts http://blog.cyrenahillyard.com/2011/08/port-townsend-wa.html and http://blog.cyrenahillyard.com/2011/09/western-washington-from-spit-to.html from selects from that trip). On the way back we took the ferry to Whidbey Island so we could drive over Deception Pass.
