Weekly Photo Challenge – Change

Devil's Backbone

Devil’s Backbone

Here’s a shot of Devil’s Backbone in Loveland, Colorado – just south of my home. Taken at sunset, long shadows betray the change from day to night. Golden grasses tell their story as the seasons change from the last days of Autumn to the days when Winter’s snows arrive.

      Thanks so much, Mary. It is interesting to see how different people interpret the challenge. And yes, this rock formation does have a skeleton-like quality to it. And it’s a beautiful hike!

    I recently visited my sister in Castle Rock. It is so gorgeous where you guys live. I fell absolutely in love with the scenery. It was far too short of a visit (Labor Day weekend). Wish I could’ve seen more.

      Thanks, Carrie. Yes, I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. Castle Rock is really beautiful as are the mountains a little south of there in Colorado Springs. Have you every done the cogwheel railroad up to the top of Pikes Peak, Carrie? Now that is stunning!

    Beautiful imagery, Cathy. Devil’s Backbone is a rather chilling name for this impressive and gorgeous landscape, but it does have plenty of bumps and ridges and twists to it, doesn’t it? Happy weekend!

  8. What an appropriately named picturesque location, Cathy! I’m feeling the change in the air over here, but the scenery is not as wide open and spectacular as yours. It’s more narrow closed and crowded, especially with Francis in town.
