Throughout the month of January, Parker library is showcasing digital photographer Karen Jacques.
Karen Jacques has lived in Colorado for the past 30 years and is constantly amazed by the stunning landscapes and wildlife that surround us in our state. While working for Pentax Imaging in Golden, Colorado Karen was introduced to digital photography. Since then she has enjoyed capturing thousands of images on her K20D digital SLR camera and macro lens.
Her photography, on display at Parker, showcases the splendid beauty of Colorado. Whether it’s the delicate curves of a flourishing rose or the intrepid rush of a mountain steam, her photography draws the viewer into the moment. Karen reminds us all, with her breathtaking images, to stop and smell the roses.
