Cog Railroad on Top of Pikes Peak
This was one of the first images I had taken using a new cell phone. The image comes from the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado. The railroad here is a cog railway: the little teeth running down the center line are able to catch and hold the train to help gain traction going up steep slopes as well as keep it from running backwards down the mountain when the train stops. Some cog railways are no more than two feet wide to get through narrow mountain passes; this one is more like four.

Seven Bridges Creek
I’m not sure if this creek has an official name. This photo was taken along the Seven Bridges trail in Colorado.

Some of you may recognize the skyline here as being the same one as shown in my Rising Sun Collage. It’s just a few yards in a different direction. It’s not the same sunrise either, as evidenced by the snow on the ground.

All Header Pictures
I went and added a bunch of images to the header today. To celebrate, here’s a list of all the images the header contains as of September 2021. Continue reading “All Header Pictures”
Rising Sun Collage
This was somewhat of an experiment and an early attempt at animation. Back in November, I took a photo of a sunrise. The sun kept rising and it kept being beautiful, so I took more photos.
Fast forward to today, where I put the photos together into a little GIF collage, using the animation program Krita. For the record, I really dislike Krita. Some of the tools don’t do what you expect them to (particularly copy-paste), and you have to download a separate hacky program to render animations into GIF files specifically. Still, I’m told it’s better than GIMP, and it’s completely free, so for now it’s what I use.
Unfortunately, this collage isn’t perfect, either. The original photos were of several sizes and several angles, and even re-cutting them didn’t quite get rid of the discrepancies. It creates a bit of a wobble to the picture, which I’m not sure if I like, as in a certain light, it makes it look more 3-D. The resolution of a couple of the frames are another casualty to the re-sizing process, however, which I can’t quite get rid of.
