Morning photo: Fall revisited

Brilliance!

FRISCO — With a few thousand new autumn photos in the files, it’s time, in this in between season, to go back and start focusing on the very best shots of the season. There’s no question in my mind that the best images are from the days when the sky wasn’t just a passive blue bystander, but an active participant in the show, will billowing gray clouds acting as a perfect foil to the incredible brilliance of changing aspen leaves. And a few times we even enjoyed autumn rainbows as a bonus to the season.

October storm clears the Tenmile Range near Frisco, Colorado

FRISCO — Is there anything better than the sight of a storm clearing over a big mountain range, with lifting clouds and broken bits of sunshine streaming in? After a string of warm and sunny days, a quick storm passed through Summit County Oct. 20, leaving the higher elevations frosted with some new snow. As always, the clearing storm created stunning vistas of mountains and clouds.

Bright as a berry …

Autumn berries.

FRISCO — A spectacular weekend in the Colorado high country, and as much as some skiers and snowboarders are eager for cold weather and snow, we’ll take the lingering summer-like weather for now. Winter is long enough, so enjoying a few balmy days in late October is a good thing. And with the weekend weather dominated by a subtropical flow, we even got some monsoon-like cloud cover to brighten up the morning and evening skies.

A look back …

Lifting clouds form a pleasing backdrop to this aspen scene on Swan Mountain Road.

FRISCO — The fall color season is just about over, at least at our elevation, but that’s why photos are good! Watching the trees race through their seasonal change is always inspiring, a sign of the inexorable force of nature. In looking back at some of the images, it amazes me how fast the change happens, resulting in different patterns of light and color nearly every day. These images span about a week in Summit County, just before the first wintry storms swept through.

October snow …

This is what it looks like when it starts snowing in Colorado in October!

This is what it looks like when it starts snowing in Colorado in October!

FRISCO — Dramatic days in Summit County, with hulking storm clouds, wind and some significant valley snow, right on schedule. Pretty soon, we’ll be in the all-white mode, but for now, there’s still that fabulous clash of seasons, visible even through the kitchen window as the last few aspen leaves hang on under the onslaught of winter.

Sweet September light

A slanting September sun adds some side-lighting to this Dillon Reservoir scene.

FRISCO — I was hoping to post a set of new snow pictures this morning, but it looks like the storm passed a bit to the south and east so we’ll have to wait just a bit longer for the first significant valley accumulation. Instead, I sorted through the last few weeks worth of fall images to find a few that tell the story of the season — slanting light that changes everything, late-blooming fall flowers and some serenely floating leaves. It’ll all change soon enough when the snows arrive! Continue reading
