FRISCO — Friday’s sunrise felt like the first true winter morning in Summit County since probably sometime last February, not only because of the temps (in the single digits) and the snow, but also because of subtle changes in the quality of the light. The snow is definitely a factor in that. It reflects the first rays of the sun differently, but it’s also related to the angle of the sun in relationship to the peaks and even to the way it slants through the atmosphere. For this set, I wandered out on one of the peninsulas near Heaton Bay so that I could shoot back toward the Gore Range, which catches the first rays in a stunning display of alpenglow.
