Boulder Flatirons New Year's Day

Borrowing a line from one of my favorite sitcoms of all time, Seinfeld, off we go into the blogging world. As much as I enjoy photography, I also enjoy writing and sharing my photography. I plan on using this blog to detail my travels and adventures as well as my often disjointed thoughts on various subjects and topics. One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2011 was to actively start blogging as well as to post imagery more often. As often as possible I will update my blog with new images and photographs. How frequently do I plan on updating the blog?. At this point I have made it a goal of mine to update the blog at least once a week, hopefully more. Come hell or high water I plan on sticking to that plan.

Obviously it took me a little longer than I wanted to get the blog up and rolling. Because it was a New Year’s Resolution of I’ve mine to start blogging in 2011, I figured what better way to introduce the blog than to include the first image I shot in 2011. I was suprisingly lucid on New Year’s morning and needed to get my ‘active’ dog, Jackson out of the house for some morning excercise. One of Jackson’s favorite spots is the area around Boulder’s Chautauqua Park. Conveniently, this also happens to be one of my favorite hiking spots. New Years Day started on the chilly side, around 8 degrees if I remember correctly. As we arrived at the trailhead, sunrise looked promising. Clouds billowed over the Flatirons and there was a nice clearing along the eastern horizon. Off we went into the meadow and a few mintues after setting up my camera, 2011 greeted me with this image. Not a bad way to start 2011.
