This post goes out to a photo buddy of mine Scott Ackerman. Why you ask? Well, a of couple reasons. First, he is Kansas resident who loves the Colorado Rockies. He spent a part of this summer up in the Summit County area so I thought I would share a bit more of Colorado to get him back out here next summer. Secondly, he is also a cyclist and contacted me for a playlist he can use on his rides. Below is the four hours of listening pleasure that I used to get me through some long solo rides this spring. If you would like to take a listen, just click the link and it will load it up in your iTunes library Songs For Solo Bike Rides.

Enjoy Scott, and I hope to see you back out here next summer!

  3. Excellent rainbow! A lot of rainbow shots are boring, but this one is really nice. It leads the eye down to the lighted foreground. Cool!
