An iPhone shot captures sunset light over the Gore Range.
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! Continue reading

Spring scenes …
FRISCO — At this rate I’m starting to wonder if there will still be snow on the ground going into June. It seems feasible that, even at valley elevations, a few thick drifts could persist in shady forests around town. With so little green yet to be seen, I had to delve back into the archives to find some seasonal spring love. Please visit our online gallery for more Summit County nature and landscape scenes.
Nothing says spring like a bright wildflower, right?

Wide angle magic
Sunset over the Divide.
FRISCO — After a few days of scrunching in close to ice formations, laying belly down in slush and gravel beside the streams, it felt good to step back, figuratively and literally, and shoot some wide-open vistas. After editing the moonrise shot, I decided to go back through the archives and look for a few other wide angle images to complement the shot of the day. Here’s what I came up with. Please visit our online gallery at Fine Art America for more Summit County landscape and nature images. Continue reading

It’s all how you look at it
FRISCO —Man, I really, REALLY love that Grays, Torreys, Grizzly skyline. For as many pics as I’ve snapped of those summits, I can’t find two that are the same. Then, there’s the mundane that become sublime in the eye of the beholder, like a simple aspen leaf laying in the snow, or something that’s sublime to begin with, like a bend in the river with serendipitous sunshine shafting across the cured grass to the very fringe of the forest. It’s all good … Continue reading

Summit County eyecandy
Early evening light slants below an approaching storm to illuminate the Tenmile Range near Frisco, Colorado.
FRISCO —A short set in honor the impending seasonal changes, often marked by the impressive build-up of wave and lenticular clouds over the highest terrain. Wave clouds form when the wind flow is perpendicular to the mountain fronts. The reason they often form in the autumn is because the prevailing wind pattern shifts as the westerlies start to dominate, putting the Front Range mountains and the Continental Divide into the weather cross hairs. These are all iPhone shots taken in the past two days around Summit County and Dillon Reservoir Continue reading

Sunrise to sunset …
Buffalo Mountain reflected in a pond along the edge of Dillon Reservoir.
FRISCO — It started out like a normal Saturday, with an early morning dog walk along Dillon Reservoir, where I watched water flowing in reverse, filling small tributaries, as the rising water level trickled into long-dry crevices along the shore. I really recommend taking a walk out to one of the shallow areas because it’s really quite fascinating to watch the water come up. A little later, after dropping the kids on the Silverthorne side, I noticed the splashes of yellow on the bluffs above the Blue River, realizing all of a sudden that it is peak wildflower season on some of the sunnier lower-elevation slopes. So I made a mid-day trip down to Boulder Creek — not the best light to shoot flowers and mountains, but I gave it my best and scouted out some spots for early Sunday morning. And in the evening, yet another unforgettable sunset over the Gore Range … If you like these snapshots, be sure to visit our online FineArt America gallery with a great selection of Summit County landscapes.
