    1. Thanks, Linda! But I shared a little early! This was supposed to post on Sunday. That's what I get for spending the last twelve hours writing, the last seven also watching the Republican debates and drinking chardonnay. LOL! I guess life will go on! Have a happy Thursday, my friend!

  2. Pronghorn!

    1. Thanks, Alex! The antelope are, of course, pronghorn! Blame that song "Where the Deer and the Antelope Roam," and the fact I'm bleary-eyed from working on three posts for many hours. The man is my hubby and the dog is Rufus; there was something so compelling about the intense light of the sunrise shining on them. Okay, now I have to crash! Have a good one, my friend!

    1. Thanks, Jean! It was a lovely walk along Piney Creek! Until about three minutes later, Gracie decides to take a flying leap into the water on the opposite side of the bridge. She came out with her blonde and white fur drenched in grey stuff. We walked many times, and she had never done anything like that! At that moment I was not feeling blissful!!!! Have a great day! Hugs!

    1. Hey, Pat! We get such intense light in Colorado at sunrise and sunset when the skies are clear. I wanted to spend time taking more photos that morning, but the dogs wanted breakfast, and the gorgeous light is fleeting. Have a great day, my friend!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Margaret! It gives me great pleasure when someone enjoys my photos. I'm having fun with my humongous digitizing project, and it's fun to relive things through old photos. I wish Rufus and Gracie were our dogs. They belong to my husband's sister, but sometimes we watch them when she has to go out of town. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's October photos. I'm under the weather now with a medical setback, but I will get around to all the posts! Have a good one!

  8. So many great shots here Louise. I LOVE the colours in Familiar and your photo of the cupola is just beautiful.
    Looks like Seattle is having the same lousy weather as us!

    1. Thanks, Fiona! The real cupola is so amazing. I always try to capture such things, but somehow photos never capture the scale! Stay dry!!!

    1. Thanks, Louise! That cream-topped dessert was delicious, but might have to be a once in a year treat! At least the restaurant is in Victoria, British Columbia, a long way from Aurora, Colorado! Have a good one!
