Morning photo: Frost City!

The frozen fog of Dillon Reservoir


Frost garden.

FRISCO —Right on schedule, winter kicked in with a vengeance in early December, bringing snow, and the first outbreak of sub-zero temps. For a few days each year, before the reservoir freezes over, this means there’s a magical time when the trees along the shoreline are coated with a thick layer of what is, essentially, frozen fog. As chilly as it is to operate camera controls, I always try to make one or two photographic forays around the Dam Road and the Dillon Marina area, where the frost always seems to be thickest. Here’s the first frosty set from this year. Visit our Fine Art America online gallery for more Summit County landscape and nature images.
