Don’t fear the winter

FRISCO —After about five months of snow and cold, it’s understandable that some people might want to just curl up beneath a thick blanket for a few weeks to wait for spring. But if you do, you might miss scenes like this: Exquisite morning sunshine filtering through tall pines, the tangerine-colored glow of a winter sunset and the crumpled snow fields that look like cake frosting. Enjoy the last bits of winter, especially in the era of global warming, when winter snows seem far from a sure thing. For daily photography updates, follow our Instagram feed

Winter glory …

Low winter sun.
FRISCO — OK, so January was a bit of a bust as far as snow, and it looks to go down by the warmest January on record in Summit County by a long shot, so who’s down with global warming
I thought so, but despite the balmy temps, our snowpack help up pretty well, thanks mainly to the low sun angle this time of year. And that same sun angle made for spectacular winter scenes along the shore of Dillon Reservoir and elsewhere in the high country. These are some of the best images for the Summit Voice archive.

Winter skies over Summit County
Tangerine glow in the morning sky, looking southeast from Frisco toward Guyot and Baldy.
Low clouds and sun light up the sky over Peak 1.
A slice of the river …
Low winter sun.
A little dark, but dramatic …
FRISCO —Morning or evening, the skies over Summit County rarely disappoint. Mountain light, snow, clouds … it all combines to create sometimes surreal vistas of colors and shapes. As often as I’ve photographed Peak 1, our Frisco landmark, I’m still amazed at how different the light can be from one day, or even one hour, to the next. Follow our Instagram feed

Around the neighborhood …
FRISCO — A few iPhone shots from around Summit County the last few days once again show the incredible versatility of the snazzy camera. I pretty much leave the HDR setting on the whole time, which means the camera saves an HDR and a “regular” version of each, giving me more choices during the editing phase (and yes, there’s a little more to it than just point and shoot. Composition is always a factor when I’m thinking Instagram, because the square photos go against the natural grain of a photographer used to shooting in a square format. It’s actually a good exercise in composition because it often forces me to shoot vertical images (giving me more room to work within the square IG template. Check our Instagram feed for more.

Month of contrasts …
A straight out of the iPhone HDR shot, Meadow Creek wetlands, Frisco, Colorado.
FRISCO — What a month! Seemingly endless snowfall, at least for a while, with a major meltdown under way at valley elevations at the same time. As always, April was a month of contrasts, reflected by the images in our monthly compilation. From fiery sunrise to icy mornings and full moons, you can find more Summit County landscape and nature photography at our Fine Art America online gallery. Continue reading

Some January shots …
January sky over Summit County, Colorado.
FRISCO —Last January may not have been the snowiest month, but it was definitely wintry, at least judging by the Summit Voice photo archives, which features some stellar shots of the always-groovy ice formations along the Snake River, along with some killer sunsets and stunning sunrise images of the Gore Range. It’s hard for me to narrow down the selection to a half-dozen, and if you have a favorite that you think should be included, leave a comment in the box at the end of the post. If you enjoy our daily snapshots at Summit Voice, visit our online gallery at Fine Art America for more Summit County landscape and nature images featuring the light of the Rocky Mountains.
