John Wheeler here from Northern Colorado.

Out in the boonies just east enough of the mountains for great views of the Rockies.

I am mostly retired and my photography is for fun as opposed to how I make money. Just an amateur yet greatly enjoy photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom.

I am here for help with an atrophied right brain (the creative part) yet might be able to help on technical issues with my heavier left brain side.

The Forums look great and am looking forward to learning (and possible contributing as appropriate).

Thanks in advance to any that provide me help.

Hi John - Great sunset photo. You sound like our type of guy. I'm only on for a few moments, but I'll respond more fully (including to your PM) later today.

Welcome!

PS - I hear that a bit to the west of your area, especially around Steamboat, is getting hit with some good snow. Are you getting dumped on down on the flatland, too?

No snow in the flatlands. Might get some this Thursday. A white Christmas for the majority of Coloradans (not in the mountains) is actually the exception rather than the rule even a couple decades ago when it used to snow more.

Yup. Those mountains sure have a way of getting in the way of weather, don't they. LOL.

PS - Check your private messages.

It's barely snowed here in my part of NE this year. Only one day has been bad so far. It used to be way different!

I agree with that. Thought I am dating myself 30 and 40 years ago we could measure the severity of the winters by how many "2 foot" snows we had that year. In the last 8 years we have only had a single "2 foot" in my area and not many more in the next prior 20 years. Quite a shift for this area. Some years dryland grass has a hard time growing :)
