For a decade or more my wife and I have stopped off at K's Dairy Delite in Buena Vista, CO in the summers to get ice cream with our children.  We have a pretty set routine - at least we did when they were younger - of wandering over to Columbine Park behind the shop to eat our ice cream and then let the kids run out their sugar on the playground.  Tucked behind the park is Cottonwood Creek, where a small playful beach area offers a splash of mountain cold run off.  The Denver Rio Grande Railway ran right through and over the creek and left behind a picturesque bridge.  On this particular day I took of my shoes and socks, held my breath and braced myself for the ice cold as I took my camera and tripod out into the creek.  I enjoy this moment locked in time - the juxtaposition of the hot day, the cold creek, the cotton clouds, the blue sky, and the knowledge that my wife and kids are nearby.
