Story and photographs by Jenney Coberly
BRECKENRIDGE — The woods have an abundance of eye-catching shapes and colors any time of year. But in mid-autumn in the high country, after the brilliant leaves have fallen but the snow is still only inches deep, the beauty is subtle and requires more careful observation.
Fallen logs and branches with their sketchy load of snow make for interesting shapes and contours.
This past week I’ve been particularly captivated by the beauty of the ice forming on the streams.
Without spectacular wildflowers or stunning foliage to grab my attention, I found photo ops in formations I had overlooked during the summer and early fall.
