Colorado Weather and Pet Assignment

 Colorado Weather can come in extremes. and Photo Amateur is sharing just a few snapshots that most can identify with at some point. 

Also, I am offering an assignment for any amateur photographer to share a few of your cutest, funniest or coolest pictures of your pets. There are many Facebook and Blogger users that love pets and love to share theirs. This is your chance to join in and share yours. (Any other photos you may have are welcome too).

  Please send your photos to and provide your alias.  I will of course watermark every photo for your protection and will enter it in an upcoming post and also on the guest page.  For further instructions read the upper right side bar of this page.  I would like to have several entries for this pet post if possible so get out your cameras and have a fun time.  You can use some special effects if you want to try something different. If you have an old favorite picture that can be sent or scanned in and sent the same way.

  Now for some Colorado summer and fall weather….

Colorado Hunter’s Winter Paradise

Winter in Colorado is beautiful, especially in the high mountain back country. Hunting is not only about bringing back the bacon (so to speak) but the experience of the wonders of nature. Watching your breath in the crisp mountain air, crunching through knee high snow, feeling the soft crystaline snow as it drops from the evergreens onto your shoulders, listening to the soft whistle of the cold breeze through the bare aspen and becoming part of the wild natural landscape around you as you quietly pass through the awesome and majestic silence. Whether you hunt with a rifle or a camera or just with your eyes, you can enjoy these beautiful pictures.    Photographer: Mountain Man
