Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel

I took this photo in early December while I was in Colorado Springs.  I used an Uber to travel out to the Air Force Academy right before sunset to photograph this spot.  When I arrived, it was in the low 50s and I was comfortable.  When I left a few hours later, it was in the mid 30s and I wasn’t prepared.  I was freezing when the sun set and with the wind coming down the mountains onto this spot.  Regardless, I dealt with it.  I could have dealt with it better had I taken a coat (my fault for not planning ahead)….  But I didn’t.  Anyway, after I captured all the photos I wanted, I requested another Uber.  At that point, I started to get worried the Uber driver wouldn’t be able to come give me since the based closes to visits at 6pm (and I was really cold).  If the Uber driver got stopped at the gate, it would have been a 4 mile walk from my spot (the Chapel) to the gate to catch the ride.  As it turned out, the Uber driver got through and everything was fine. 

By the way… you can see another photo I took of the Chapel’s interior at this LINK.
