|St. Vrain Creek, Longmont, CO|
The city of Longmont has some great parks, greenways, and open space areas, most within a stone's throw of my home. The St. Vrain Creek runs through the city and provides a peaceful natural corridor within the urban environment. Golden Ponds Natural area on the western side of the city is a particular favourite of mine, these old gravel pits were donated to the city in 1990. The reflection in the lakes of the mountains, mixed with Autumn colours from the surrounding trees can be an amazing sight!.

November 14, 2016 saw the largest supermoon since 1948, and the last one until 2034. I did not plan enough in advance, or scout out shooting locations; so my capture of this rare occurrence was not optimum. I headed 10 miles east into farmland that typically has less light pollution, but unfortunately could not find a good anchor for more shot, except for the odd farm light.
