Morning stroll

Winter in Summit County

Steam rises off the waters of the Blue River at Farmer’s Kormer.

FRISCO — Stayed a little closer to home Monday morning, venturing as far as the Blue River inlet at Farmer’s Korner for a morning photo walk. First things first — the willows at the mouth of the river have trapped most of the snow blowing off the surface of Dillon Reservoir, so in spots, it’s thigh deep. I got there in plenty of time to wait for the sun to pop up over Swan Mountain and tried to line up a few shots in advance. Once the light hit, it hit pretty hard and pretty suddenly. Instead of having a chance to shoot frames in a mellow half-light, It was bright and full of contract almost immediately. The second image in this series (below) was taken just at the right moment; just 30 seconds later, the scene was bathed in full sunlight, making it a bit harder to capture details and tones.
