Unplugged – Sawhill Sun-Rays

Place: Sawhill Ponds (Boulder)

Band/Album: The Okee Dokee Brothers / Can You Canoe?

Date: 5/27/13

Over Memorial Day Weekend my sister and brother-in-law came down to Boulder to spend the weekend with us. They also like to be outside, so we took them to one of our favorite spots to Unplug. Sawhill Ponds is located out in the open space east of Boulder. There are many little ponds scattered throughout the area with paths weaving in and out between them. It is a fun place to fish, go for walk, or just sit and enjoy the great view of the Rocky Mountains. We loaded up the girls and the camera and our brother-in-law loaded up his fishing gear- we were off. It was very cloudy most of the time we were there, so we weren’t holding our breath for the sunset shots and views we were hoping for. Lucky for us the clouds started to break up just before sunset – allowing the sun to burst through their seams. It was the kind of light that made you feel like you are in a movie – where the view is perfect and the colors are deeply saturated. In all 360 degrees there was not a bad view to be found. Justin captured this photo right as the clouds began to break.
