Day after second snow fall URALing

Scarlett and I went for a short ride this morning to run an errand.

Skies were clear and temperatures were near 50°F as we motored along in light traffic.

The upgraded EFI mapping continues to perform well and I can still kick start the rig with the engine warm, takes a bit more effort with the engine cold though.  Oh well, its a good trade off I think.

The snow that fell yesterday remains only on grassy areas and I fear, not for long in those areas given the warm temperatures we're expecting until Sunday.  More snow in the long range forecast for next week, so there's hope.

50°F and snow. Sounds like Spring!

The white stuff arriveth. There you go, Dom. Enjoy.

RichardM, it does, doesn't it? The snow never sticks around here in the Front Range.

SonjaM, most of the snow is gone now, streets are bone dry....

Your pictures are truly breathtaking! I doubt with even that same scenery I could capture what your eye manages to find on your rides.

Thanks Joe for your kind words. Colorado's scenic views make things easy....

Such a scenic place in which you live and explore.

Is your stock lens fixed or something like an 18-55 zoom? Both images looked good to me, but there was no flare on the fender with the telephoto and the colors were a bot different between the two, but a whole slew of factors could have accounted for either of those. :-)

Kathy K: its a 16-55 zoom, I also have a 55-200 telephoto but rarely use it due to distances involved.

The colors were different? perhaps due to the different F-stops and post-processing not being an automatic thing.
