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.

One of the more unusual sunrise scenes I’ve witnessed from the Lake Hill area, above Dillon Reservoir, in Summit County, Colorado.
FRISCO —After a couple of grayish, if not downright dreary, days, I had a yen for some sky color, so I looked back through the archives to find some of the more outlandish skyscapes. I didn’t have to go too far, but the best colors were definitely in a cluster in that late autumn, early winter time frame, when large-scale changes in atmospheric circulation build up deep and rich layers of clouds. Here’s looking forward to the next one while enjoying these images from the past. Visit the Summit Voice online gallery at FineArt America for more landscape photography. Continue reading

April showers …
Clearing storm in the North Tenmile Creek drainage, Frisco, Colorado.
FRISCO — If the weathermen are right, this may truly have been the last big snowstorm of the season (but who knows, right?) so I had to pick out just a few more shots from an early morning Frisco iPhone walkabout. Snow is good anytime of the year, but the late-April bonus storms are the best, not just for the scenery, but for the sake of boosting our mountain snowpack. Continue reading
