Photographer Matthew J. Capps captured images from all around Loveland on an evening filled with anticipation and excitement for a community ready to make coronavirus quarantine a thing of the past. From couples enjoying the sunset and fireplace on the patio of The Works, to our Loveland Mayor, Kathy Bailey along with family and friends enjoying the safe distancing sights and sounds of Lyle’s on the trail, to a drone’s eye view of the diners enjoying the food and fun on the rooftops of Bishop’s Quarter and Tano’s Bistro, it proved to be a most pleasant restart for the Loveland community.
