Twin Lakes, Colorado

Twin Lakes, Colorado Now I must admit, with some embarrassment as a photographer, that most of my photos of the village of Twin Lakes were taken during the winter time, when the terrain is fairly cold and snowy. There is nothing wrong with snow, of course, but I am not sure if my pictures really do a good service to representing the beautiful of this particular area. More photos of Twin Lakes can be seen here:

I have two photos of Twin Lakes. The top was taken on a bitter cold but sunny day in November 2005. The bottom was taken in January 2006.
