The Broadmoor | Denver Wedding and Event Photographer

Luxurious and Relaxing

Spending time at The Broadmoor was absolutely amazing.  Although the weather was a bit foggy and rainy, the experience was amazing.  They have mastered the art of service!  If you ever have an opportunity to spend time at this resort in Colorado Springs… jump on it!!  My husband had a conference at The Broadmoor, and I tagged along and attended a few “spouse activities”, including The Royal Gorge, and taking the Cog Railroad up Pikes Peak.



It was at The Broadmoor that I think I fell in love with Night Photography.  I took a few images because it was a bit foggy, and looking across the lake gave great reflection, and the lights halo-ed a bit mored than usual.  Also check out Wordless Wednesday – The Broadmoor.

Here are a few images of the Royal Gorge. A view from on the bridge, one from below the bridge, and one from the tram looking back at the bridge and the gorge.

We also made a quick stop at The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City.  The conference was international, so tasting the regions wines was appealing to many on the bus.  I, however, was distracted by the beautiful surroundings.  Canon City has about 8 jails in and around the community, and many buildings were built by inmates.  In the 1930’s the Warden would have his name put on the buildings early in the construction process, so the inmates didn’t forget who was incharge.


The second “spouse trip” was to take the Cog Railway up to Pikes Peak.  I’ve driven up Pikes Peak, but never done the railway… which was really cool.  You get to the top very quickly! From a photography standpoint, however, I liked driving much better.  The best photographs are not at the top of Pikes Peak, they are of Pikes Peak.
