ice cold

Fort Collins, Colorado

ice cold at times, Colorado is nevertheless a refreshing autumn destination...advertisements are of course omnipresent, particularly from an iconic if somewhat syrupy company..this old wall advert is one of many 'ghost signs' preserved in the funky town

Nikon D7000
Nikkor 18-200mm - 1/500s f/11.0 at 29.0mm iso125 full exif

other sizes: small medium large auto

I always thought it was 'Ice Cold in Alex', no thats a classic film this is a classic shot and spot of advertising, the paper bill boards are just not the same!

Nicely captured, David. And just as refreshing as ever.

We will have to check Fort Collins. Greeley has some signs painted on the buildings too. Did you make it over there? Nice image. Well done. V.
