“Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
you had to hide away for so long,
so long, where did we go wrong?”
(Thank you, ELO)
Today the sun rose in a bit of haze over Boulder, a few minutes later it was shining brightly. This gave me my first shot to get at getting out early to capture some photographs on Flagstaff mountain. I rose, at 5:30 AM for the occasion. There is still residual haze from the Western fires affecting long shots, but otherwise, it is a glorious day. I’ve rented something of a tank, a Toyota 4Runner to traverse the switchbacks on the mountain. Those 10 MPH speed limit signs are there for a reason. My first day scouting paid off, I found some great spots, like the one below.
