Canyon light …
I like the symmetrical “S” pattern in this image, and the dusting of snow on the trees, along with the freezing mist, was a bonus.
FRISCO —I passed through a distinct layer of frozen fog Sunday driving down to Golden, showing how varied the weather patterns can be in Colorado, with spectacular blue skies just west of the Continental Divide and hazy pre-spring conditions farther south and east. This state really is in a climate crossroads, with polar air dropping down out of the plains east of the mountains, and storms in the western mountains that still carry plenty of punch even after a long journey inland from the Pacific Ocean.
A faint sheen of color above Buffalo Mountain marked sunset, with more moisture rolling in from the West.
Near the mouth of Clear Creek Canyon, in Golden, Colorado.
The texture of the Instagram filter in this shot of Clear Creek Canyon made me think of those old-time postcards with a colored-pencil look.
