DISPARATE things, same place

I met a fellow photographer late yesterday at a reclaimed gravel mining operation now turned wetlands.  Interestingly, this wetlands area is right next to a gravel mining plant.  I chose two images to convey this disparity.  They include two of my favorite subject matters: nature study and industry.

On reflection, I will note that the land was there first (no kidding!), then it was mined, then it was “reclaimed”, and turned into wetlands.  It is now called “Walden Ponds” (another no kidding!).  Again, Colorado, the land of contrasts.
