Summertime Night Sky Over Colorado.

There was a partial Lunar Eclipse  while I was working at the Merck/Sirna site in Boulder. The sky was clear and I spent much of the night observing the eclipse from the Sirna parking lot. At one point I must have stood in front of the camera for a selfie.

Morning in Boulder: Colorful Clouds and Panorama

I got permission to get onto the roof of the Sirna facility in Boulder to take pictures. I had been planning to do a panorama for some time, and saw some colorful clouds developing. I got up to the roof in time and got the picture. I also noticed an interesting sign (someone working there apparently thought they were “God”). By the time that I got the images for the Boulder Flatirons panorama the colors were gone, and the light had gone flat.

Boulder: Evening Storm Clouds

While working part-time in Boulder, I was living a Marriott Residence Inn that was just a short distance away from the Sirna facilities. From my office, I noticed that it was getting dark out with some ominous clouds approaching. I took this sh0t while walking to the Residence Inn.
