Early evening light slants below an approaching storm to illuminate the Tenmile Range near Frisco, Colorado.

FRISCO —A short set in honor the impending seasonal changes, often marked by the impressive build-up of wave and lenticular clouds over the highest terrain. Wave clouds form when the wind flow is perpendicular to the mountain fronts. The reason they often form in the autumn is because the prevailing wind pattern shifts as the westerlies start to dominate, putting the Front Range mountains and the Continental Divide into the weather cross hairs. These are all iPhone shots taken in the past two days around Summit County and Dillon Reservoir

October and November are prime time for wave clouds.

Amazing how dynamic a still picture can be, given the right lines.

Other lines, by contrast, suggest total stillness.
