The storm started Tues night. Through the night it built in intensity and all day on Wed the wind blew the snow everywhere. Today (Thurs) the snow started to diminish and the wind died down. I spent most of the day shoveling and by 4:30 the cloud cover subsided and the sun came out briefly. I went out after dark and took these pics. The plows still have not been down our street and maybe they won't be here until sometime on Sat, but I think that I will be able to get out tomorrow. Definitely a white Christmas for us this year!!

Sunday last I spent some time taking pictures in the Denver Tech Center. The DTC is a very large area in South Denver that is exclusively high rise office buildings. On a Sunday everything is deserted so I was able to get some photos sans people! These are just a few of what I took and centered around parking garages. I plan on going back to explore further at different times of the day to see how light changes the appearance of the architecture. On this day that the photos were taken it was a very typical day in Denver....no cloud cover and intense sunlight! Many of my pics were way too contrasty with the lights blowing out and clipped. These are a few of the ones that I felt were "keepers."

This photo was taken at the same location as the next photo...a Greenwood Village Park. It is already a week into December and this is only our second or third snow that has accually stayed on the ground for more than a few days before melting. I am posting this on Thurs and it has already melted. Every body thinks that Denver is a snow-bound location, but we get far less snow than the midwest or east coast. I grew up in Illinois and the winters there were FAR more snowy and cold than anything that I have experienced in Denver.
