Photos from the Field
Summer was barely a whisper and now the cold crisp bite of fall is slowly seeping in. Leaves are turning, fading and falling the forest floor. For so many creatures this is the most important time. Whether this is a time to feast, a time to fatten or a time to breed (possibly all of the above), fall is the stage before winter and winter can be the ultimate test. Throughout my outdoor travels I take photos that don’t seem to fit into various fish posts or get left behind for some reason. “Photos from the Field” is an excerpt meant to capture these pictures and add a little variety on my fishing blogilicious.
Bad Boys of Cripple Creek
Another Cripple Creek sign…
If you fish lakes with fluctuating water levels you might have come across “Sun Rocks”. These rocks will come out and sun themselves when the water level drops and then go back into the water when the water levels rise again. Sun rocks use very little oxygen, none at all in fact, so breathing in and out of the water is never a problem for them.
This is the train that I waited for about thirty or so excruciating minutes while fishing on the Clear Creek run up Georgetown. All I wanted was a picture of the train going over the bridge. Instead the conductor kept blowing the missile a mile away at the loading station every few minutes to make me think he was on his way. So then I walk half a mile up to the station and the train starts rolling. Five minutes after that the darn thing is rolling over the bridge and I’m not there to take the shot.
Empire of Wood – “Jus werkin’ wit wut I got”.
Near the town of Granby there resides what may be one of the most serious wood dealers you will find. The guy has gone so far as to fence himself in with wood and nearly completed a tower of sorts. This person has created an entire empire, a castle if you will, from something they have a lot of. Achieving personal dreams through creative means and simply using a common resource all around them.
So many of my fishing adventures and photos don’t make it to my fishing blogs for whatever reason. Photos from the Field is intended to give some of those interesting pictures a spotlight outside of the shameless fish bragging. Once again, I want to thank everyone that views my fishing blog material and puts up with my comments on their blog. You have no idea how much it truly means to me have you following, reading and commenting. Thank you.
Good luck and Good Fishing.
