This is an oldie but a goodie.  I took this photo years ago using a point and click camera that I can’t find today.  No idea what happened to it after we moved into the house.  It’s just gone.  I suppose it could be in a box that I marked ‘storage’ or something.  Oh well.

Anyway, a large group of friends had descended on Denver for a little R&R and one of our day trips was up I-70 past the Eisenhower Tunnel, up near the Vail / Breckenridge area.  We saw this little body of water that looked unusual, like it was either human made or the result of a sudden snow melt.  We pulled off to investigate and I kept trying to take a photo, but my point and shoot camera couldn’t adjust for the brightness of the sun.  The results was this photo:

A very small @Tybarbary can just be made out in the lower left corner of the photo.  Yes, it was beginning to rain.

This accidental photo remains one of my favorites.

    A very happy accident, Patrick. Photography is often just being at the right place at the right time…

      I actually used this photo in one of those CafePress calendars one year 🙂

      Glad you like it.
