Best Pictures: December 2018

Here are some of my favorite pictures from December:

Aly’s winter Choir Concert

In search of dark skies, a couple of friends and I headed east from Colorado Springs in early December to a tiny little park called Paint Mines Interpretive Park, where we shot pictures of the distant windmills and the night sky. It was very cold, but lots of fun.
