Unbeatable views.⠀ •⠀ We made it up to Gem Lake amidst constant winds (gusts up to 50 mph!) and freezing temps. Oddly enough, I felt like I was back home in Louisiana, standing in an approaching tropical storm.⠀ •⠀ I lost one of my Yaktrax at the lake, and had the second one pop just a few minutes later. Needless to say, the descent was a bit tricky with all the ice patches.⠀ •⠀ Looking forward to the next winter hike!⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #gemlake #estespark #estesparkcolorado #estesparkphotographer #estesparknaturephotographer #visitestespark #coloradolive #coloradogram #colorado_creative #colorado_fame #coloradountamed #coloradoviews #viewcolorado #optoutside #coloradolifestyle #coloradocameraclub #coloradoshared #coloradotography #liveadve #ventureout #ventureoutdoors #wilderness #coloradooutdoors #chooseoutdoors

My first photo of Comet 46P/Wirtanen!! I shot this in the parking lot at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park! It’s very cool to see it pop up on my LCD screen after taking a photo in the dark!! • • • • • #cometwirtanen #comet #astrophotography #wirtanen #comet46p #46pwirtanen #nightsky #nightskyphotography #longexposure #deepsky #astrophoto #pleiades #stars #starcluster #galaxy #astronomy #astronomyphotography #astronomyphotos #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #naturephotography #explorescientific #explorespace #space #rockymountainnationalpark #rmnp #estespark #boulder #denver #colorado

I live in a dreamy mountain town where the roads wind along rivers in every direction in between hills and valleys. The early morning sun will light up the snow-capped peaks off in the distance, and if there are clouds above, will cast a beautiful warm glow over the snowy landscape!! It is quite magical, with a beautiful view to admire after every bend in the road, every curve of the river, and every direction you face!! 😍🏔 • • • • #alpenglow #sunrise #beautifulscenery #landscape #landscapeporn #instalandscape #mountainlandscape #mountains #rockymountains #estespark #estesparkcolorado #colorado #visitestespark #coloradotography #outtherecolorado #coloradoinstagram #outdoors #outside #naturephotography #landscapephotography #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #denver #boulder #denvercolorado

Doe in the snow! She was chillin’ in Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park when the wind kicked up and started blowing the snow off the trees above her head. 😍🌨❄️☃️🦌 • • • • • #snow #muledeer #deer #wildlife #wildlifephotography #coloradowildlife #colorado #coloradooutdoors #outdoormagazine #animals #inthewoods #instaanimal #coloradotography #estespark #estesparkcolorado #visitestespark #visitcolorado #naturephotography #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #natgeo #natgeowild #boulder #denver #coloradolive #outdoors #outside #wildlifeplanet #wildlife_shots #nationalparkgeek

Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff.

I haven’t had any Bobcats this season ‘yet’, but I’m crossing my fingers I see one soon! Here’s one from a few years ago photographed in Estes Park! Kind of cool when they cross the street in front of you and lay down in a field so you can get photos!! • • • • #bobcat #kitty #feline #wildanimals #wildlife #coloradowildlife #estespark #estesparkcolorado #colorado #mountainwildlife #natgeowildlife #natgeo #animal #cat #intothewild #coloradooutdoors #outdoors #birdgirladventures #rockymountains #estesparknaturephotographer #optoutside #denver #hiking #snow #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #coloradolife #mountainlife #outdooradventures #mountainadventures

Once the sun goes down, don’t put your camera away! There are still opportunities to photograph wildlife! This beautiful Bull Elk was foraging on tundra grasses and wildflowers this summer on Trail Ridge Road near the Alpine Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park!! • • • • #elk #bullelk #wapiti #antlers #wildlife #nature #wildanimals #wildlifephotography #coloradooutdoors #outdoors #outdoorcolorado #outdoorphotography #outtherecolorado #coloradoadventures #coloradotography #naturephotography #naturelovers #wildlifeplanet #instaanimal #explore #mountains #rmnp #rockymountains #rockynps #rockies #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #natgeo #natgeowildlife #sunset

How can these guys get any cuter? This adorable Pika got within three feet of me last June on Mt. Evans! He was heading for my boot. He stopped and looked up at me, then darted off. All I had was my Canon 100-400 mm lens! I had to wait for him to get farther away to get this shot! • • • #pika #mountevans #mtevans #14er #cuteanimals #instaanimal #wildlife #wildlifephotography #colorado #visitcolorado #coloradotography #coloradowildlife #denver #naturephotography #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #outdoorwomen #womenwhohike #getoutside #coloradooutdoors #femalephotographer #hikingadventures #mountainlife #natgeo #natgeowild #tundra #mountainsummit #mountainwildlife #natgeowildlife #cute

Stillness after the storm! I stood along the banks of the Big Thompson River facing east watching the Early morning sun try to poke through the clouds. A low layer of fog hovered over the meadow making a pretty winter wonderland-like scene that I so often see after snowfall in Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s paradise to me!! I’m in Heaven!! • • • • • #paradise #bigthompsonriver #morainepark #winterwonderland #earlymornings #rmnp #rockymountainnationalpark #estespark #estesparkcolorado #colorado #visitestespark #visitcolorado #coloradotography #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #landscapephotography #coloradolandscapes #rockymountains #mountains #snow #snowylandscape #naturephotography #coloradooutdoors #landscapeporn #beautifulview #outdoors #outdoorwomen #femalephotographer #mountaingirls #landscape

I finally got a photo of breath while this beautiful Bull Elk was bugling on a cold late September morning in Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park! • • • • #elk #bullelk #elkrut #wapiti #bugle #antlers #wildlife #nature #wildanimals #wildlifephotography # coloradooutdoors #outdoors #biggame #natgeo #outdoorphotography #outtherecolorado #coloradoadventures #naturephotography #naturelovers #wildlifeplanet #instaanimal #explore #mountains #rmnp #rockymountains #morainepark #estespark #rockies #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer

The wilderness is deep inside her. She brings it wherever she goes. Wild and free. A beautiful place to explore. To explore her surroundings, and explore her soul. She yearns to be free in uninhabited land, where the Moose roam free, and ice-cold water trickles down the mountainside between vibrant-colored wildflowers. • @coloradotography • Long Lake - Indian Peaks Wilderness - July 2018 • • • • #longlake #indianpeakswilderness #indianpeaks #wilderness #intothewild #outdoors #mountains #mountainlife #hiking #hikingadventures #outdoorwomen #womenwhohike #femalephotographer #mountaingirls #adventuregirl #birdgirladventures #estesparknaturephotographer #getoutside #denver #colorado #coloradooutdoors #visitcolorado #outtherecolorado #amongthewild #beautifulview #landscapephotography #beautifulscenery #landscapeporn #naturephotography #coloradotography

I saw a Great Horned Owl 🦉 fishing 🎣🐠one evening at Sprague Lake in late September. I had personally never seen an owl fish before, but it was pretty cool to see. He was unsuccessful in his attempts while we watched, so he perched on this branch and watched the water intently long enough for me to get a photo. • • • • #owl #greathornedowl #birds #fishing #birdsofinstagram #birding #birder #birdwatching #rmnp #spraguelake #rockymountainnationalpark #forestbirds #birdlover #ilovebirds #birdgirl #birdgirladventures #estesparkcolorado #coloradooutdoors #estesparknaturephotographer #birdphotography #birdphotographer #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #wildlifeplanet #instabird #natgeo #outdoorwomen #getoutside #outdoors #instanature
