This was another spontaneous Sunday afternoon photo shoot. The light was perfect and I picked a large tree trunk as the background. The braids help make the picture. And look at those eyes! If you have been following this series you have seen Ava before. I have been taking pictures of her and her two sisters since each of them were two or three years old. This is one of my all time favorite portraits and my most favorite image for July 31.
As you know from prior photos in this series, Rocky Mountain National Park is one of my favorite places on the planet. I was up on Trail Ridge Road at Rock Cut and captured this sunset. What I love most about this photo is the reddish rim around the cloud. This is one of my favorite photos for this date.
Earlier the same evening I photographed this Pika, not far from the sunset location. This is another of my favorite photos for this date.
