There isn’t a lot of variety in wildlife on the Summit of Pikes Peak – mostly birds, marmots, and mountain goats, which is why it was surprising to see a fox make it to the summit. In order not to scare it away, I had to zoom in from a considerable distance away, hence the blurriness of the photo, but I still think it turned out okay.
Black and white version of (almost) the same photograph.
The after affect of having a huge thunderstorm blow past the mountain. While the west side of Colorado Springs was getting pounded by rain, we had clear blue skies and a fantastic view of this rainbow.
The entire storm moving its way into Colorado Springs.
Didn’t make this shot a panoramic in order to give more attention to the magnificent rainbow shooting out of the storm cloud.
Nothing I love more than a morning that’s cloudy below and clear up high. Since this was taken in the late morning, higher clouds, such as the one on the right side of the picture, had started to begin rolling in.
