An autumn storm at Guanella Pass, Colorado.
SUMMIT COUNTY — Looking back through the Summit Voice photo archives, it’s clear that, even as the vivid hues of summer give way to more austere autumn tones (notwithstanding the brilliance of aspens), something magical happens with the light. The sun doesn’t climb quite as high into the sky, so there are more hours of the day when you can shoot landscapes with a low-angle sun. Details pop, without losing saturation and long shadows add drama.
