That's a wonderful neighborhood. Big, pretty houses surrounded by mountains and vegetation. Very green, very livable ;) and the angle from which you captured was perfect.

Greetings from Florida!

Thanks, Andres. What you see in the foreground is a golf course. I tried to accentuate the greenery without making it so obvious that there was a golf course in front. And, thanks for the professional opinion on the framing!!! If you ever want to move from Florida to Denver, Ken Caryl Valley is the place to be!!!

Well, good job on that one because I didn't notice it was a golf course! Now that you told me it just makes sense (and I can see in the map as well). Of course, it doesn't change my opinion.

And thanks for the advice on places to consider when moving to Denver. I'm actually told that there are some really awesome communities in the south of the city. I know it's a safe area, and, God, you gotta love those mountains. Perhaps, however, it might be hard for a tropical guy like me to get used to Coloradoan winters!

Best wishes,

Actually, our winters are quite mild. I grew up in St. Louis and thought moving to Denver back in 1991 would find myself buried in snow. The mountains get a lot, but Denver is very livable in the winter. We actually have more days of sunshine than Miami--about 330 days out of the year. Because we are more than a mile high in elevation, and the air is thin, even when it's 25 degrees out you can have your jacket unbuttoned as long as the sun is out since the rays from the sun are hit you more directly with the thinner atmosphere. Ken Caryl Valley is southwest of the city in an area called Littleton. We love it here!
