Mineral Palace Park

We were in Pueblo, CO yesterday to pick up Susan's brother. He took the bus from Kansas for a visit. Since we were in the town early we stopped by Mineral Palace Park which is on the north end of town. It's been a long time since I was there last which used to be quite often since I used to live in Pueblo. Normally I don't get down that way these days so I had to capture a few frames.
There's a man made lake in the park that's shaped in kind of a figure eight. I knew about the ducks, and the squirrels. They've been there forever. The fish, however, are new. I'm not sure who put them in the pond but they were a nice addition.
Included in these images are some of the first long exposures I've done with the Canon. It performed admirably, and should be a joy to use when I head up Seven Bridges trail at least once more this year. I'm also planning on a Cripple Creek shoot when fall colors starts happening.

One of the main reasons I'm doing the photography these days is that I can decompress a bit. As an aside, I also post images on Viewbug, here on the blog, Twitter, and on Facebook. I really do hope many enjoy.
On Viewbug I enter into various photo competitions. In those competitions I'm not expecting to win. Quite often there's 50k submissions and usually only two images can win so the odds are really slim. Still, competing a bit helps drive me to doing a bit better photography than I would otherwise.
Thank you for checking out my blog. Hope you have an enjoyable day today.
