Morning photo: Crags and clouds

October skies

After a snowy start, the weekend ended mildly, with an almost summer-like sunset over the Tenmile Range.

SUMMIT COUNTY —October continues to deliver stellar scenes in Summit County. Even though the autumn leaves have fallen, the early storms rolling through have helped spark some brilliant morning and evening light, and, as a bonus, a few cool and unusual (for here) migrating birds have visited Dillon Reservoir. Here are a few scenes from the last few days. If you like what you see, visit our online Imagekind gallery, where you can buy prints and notecards. It’s a great way to support independent online journalism in Colorado.

Subalpine firs cling precariously to the west side of Mt. Royal, near Frisco, Colorado.

Jagged peaks along the crest of the Tenmile Range contrast with the feathery edges of an evening wave cloud.
