Morning photo: Breck and beyond …

Couldn’t resist trying a little Monet twist on this patch of poppies in Breckenridge.

FRISCO — The poppies growing at the north end of Breckenridge may not be native to the Colorado high country, but they are putting on a spectacular show right now, so I couldn’t resist a couple of quick drive-by snaps, knowing that I’d want to edit them, and already thinking about an impressionistic version because, well, ever since Monet, it just seems poppies were made for just that.

Meanwhile, along the Riverwalk, a tall stand of yellow coneflowers is serving as a late-summer bastion for multiple species of bees. At times, there were two, three and even four bees perched on a single bloom. In fact, tomorrow, I’m taking by compact Nikon back to the same spot to try and get even closer to these beleaguered insects. I’m really hoping that the town isn’t using any chemical treatments on these plants. It’s a little unusual to see this many bees in one place these days!

After checking our iPhone snapshots, visit our online gallery at FineArt America for more.

Giant stands of yellow coneflowers at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge are buzzing with bees, as many other native wildflowers are starting to fade.

A definite autumnal tinge to this shoreline scene.
