Playing At Night

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to “play” with photography at night.  While walking around downtown Glenwood Springs, Colorado, I was able to capture a few sites that I found interesting and was able to play around with long exposures!

We first passed by the Hot Springs which is right next to the hotel.  I got a shot of the pool area which has a slide and diving board.  Now, just getting the link for this post, I was able to check out their information.  WOW!  Looks like a fabulous lodge to stay at.  If we make it out that way again, maybe we’ll stay there a spell:


Crossing the bridge towards downtown, I stopped to catch some light trails along with the Colorado River:


 I had to take a picture of this business, because frankly, I’d never seen one before!



We sat down for a little rest, and I saw this place.  Yum!  Who doesn’t like cupcakes??


…but the “cuffs” part confused me, so I looked into their other window:


What an ummmm….interesting idea for a business!


Light trails from cars and a semi truck:



My last picture from the night is crossing back over the bridge to our hotel:


 Tomorrow I’ll post about our trip to the cemetery!

  1. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking at your web page yet again.

  2. Carol – great work on the ghosts and the light trails! If you go through Glenwood Springs on 70 in the winter there is ALWAYS a herd of big horn sheep just by the highway coming into town from the east.

    • Thank you Scott. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to play around like that. If I’m NOT hibernating like a bear, I’m not sure what I’ll be doing this Winter. lol I haven’t seen a Winter in 20 yrs except Jan 2011 when I we went to see my mother-in-law before she passed away. I really can’t WAIT until Fall. I’ve NEVER photographed Fall before – EVER!

  3. P.S Do people really need marijuana in a state like this? How odd to have it so (medically?!) available. Maybe if we are all on it we won’t notice what is happening in our real world. Mrs. f

  4. Beautiful sites. Earlier at the hotel, your ghost images were neat. Now I am enjoying the light trails which I have never seen done. Good work with that camera Carol. Colorado looks fantastic. Mrs F
