Morning photo: Mountain glory

Got sky?

FRISCO — It wasn’t until I finished posting this set that I realized how clouds are featured in every shot — although I guess it shouldn’t surprise me. Try to imagine how any of these scenes would have looked with an empty blue sky. Still nice, probably, but not nearly as dramatic. In fact, the clouds really alter the quality of the light, especially in the Peak 1 shot, and it’s really all about the clouds in the Dillon Reservoir scene. With the monsoon gradually building, it’s time to grab your camera and head for the hills. Send us some of your images and we’ll feature them in an upcoming photo essay, and don’t forget to check out our online gallery at Fine Art America!

Unreal sunset over Dillon Reservoir, with lightning playing through the clouds.

Glad I was up early for this Gore Range shot, with an unusual morning thunderstorm brewing over Buffalo Mountain.
