Through the seasons …
This was a casual walk-by snapshot during an early morning stroll with the dogs but it turned into one of my all-time favorite sunrise shots because it has so much depth.
SUMMIT COUNTY — Every day starts with a sunrise, though not all are as pure as the one above. If you think about it, daybreak is kind of like life. Sometimes everything is crystal-clear, other times, it’s all murky and gray. Either way, the day goes on …
A clash of seasons in this spring shot from the Meadow Creek wetlands, with late season snow and frost on the branches while the grass is already turning green.
Just a bit cooler in this image, with all the moisture in frozen form.
Morning reflections in a scene on the shore of Dillon Reservoir in Summit County, Colorado.
With the sky washed out in the early morning shot from Great Sand Dunes National Park, I decided to go for serious post-processing to wring something out of the image. In the end, I was happy with the contrasting textures of sand and forest.
Almost otherworldly colors in this early morning scene in Frisco, Colorado.
And a black and white rendering to close it out for today, with the monochrome and low sun angle emphasizing the texture of the snow and grass.
