Living in Pueblo; part of the high desert of Colorado, I often find myself being slightly jealous of the greenery and flowers photographers in other parts of the country enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, Colorado is beautiful but the living backdrop of evergreens and sagebrush sometimes leaves me wishing for more trees with actual leaves and for flowers that grow in abundance.
Last week a fellow Pueblo area photographer posted on Facebook about a field of flowers she’d found out by the airport and I couldn’t resist driving out there for a visit. I was really surprised when we pulled up, there were actually tons of flowers out there! In fact, I think there were more wildflowers than I’ve ever seen growing in one place before; it was beautiful.
The purple wildflowers made the perfect backdrop for a green-eyed girl with her hair blowing in the wind.
