Morning photo: November glow

Early winter in Colorado

ij

November 2012 brought one of the most spectacular displays of stacked wave and lenticular clouds that I’ve ever seen.

FRISCO —November may not be the sexiest month — no wildflowers, the aspen leaves are long gone and there’s usually not quite enough snow for real wintry scenes. But I’ve learned in the last few years that it’s a month that can bring incredible displays of color in the sky, dramatic cloudscapes and wonderful frost and ice scenes. One of these shots will be featured in out 2014 Summit Voice calendar. What’s your favorite?

November 2012 was eerily dry, but the month was amazing for photography, with intense sunrise and sunset colors, including this moonrise late in the month.

Early morning light sets up an interesting contrast between the foreground frost and ice and the shade-shrouded hillside behind.

  1. That for sure is a real “WOW photo.

  2. Haha, ALL of them are my favorite – but that is because I would use each one in a different way, matching the features, shading and color elements in different stories. The diversity and quality of your photos is amazing!
