FRISCO — There’s no question that winter brings its own spectacular palette to the party, often painting the sky with colors that aren’t seen in any other season. I think there’s some kind of interplay between the sky and the snow that I don’t really understand, but I’m guessing it’s based in part of snow’s incredible ability to reflect and refract light. In any case, when conditions are just right, it’s pure winter magic. Visit the online Summit Voice gallery for a full selection of Summit County landscape images, available as fine art prints or notecards.

At the end of the day, cool blue tones overwhelm the dying rays of the setting sun.
