Morning photo: Snow scenes …

Mid-winter bliss

Dillon Reservoir, Summit County Colorado

A mellow sunset along the shore of Dillon Reservoir, near Frisco, Colorado.

FRISCO —After a few weeks of focusing on river and frost scenes, I turned my attention back to the landscapes along the shores of Dillon Reservoir. Before the last little snowstorm around Christmas, it was getting a little depressing to watch the water receded amidst piles of bare earth and gravel. But coated with a nice new blanket of white, the scene is more tolerable. Plus, after weeks of super-clear evening skies, we finally started getting a bit more atmospheric action, which means color and texture in the sky. These shots were taken Monday around Frisco, Colorado.

The iPhone camera did a good job of picking up the textures and shapes in the snowy foreground that caught my eye. I hadn’t been to this spot (near Heaton Bay) in quite a while because the low water level is depressing, but the fine blanket of new snow is quite nice.

This is the DSLR version.
