Seasonal changes


FRISCO — After a few weeks of unseasonable warmth, winter made a bit of a comeback here in the Colorado high country, with two days in a row of snow and wind. We need the moisture — we ALWAYS need the moisture, so I’m not complaining, and I know that, this late in the season, the new snow won’t last long on the ground. After a couple of hours of sunshine, we’ll be back to green patches of grass starting to emerge in the warmer spots along the south side of buildings. But it’s still fun to dream about the warm and sunny days ahead — anyone else ready for the wildflower season?

Enjoying the views …


FRISCO —You want drama? Wait around for a Colorado sunset, or get up early to catch those first rays and you won’t be disappointed, as this set of images from the past week shows. Even just a simple evening stroll along a well-worn path near Dillon Reservoir can turn into an intense light-hunting safari, as the sun near the horizon does its thing, illuminating clouds from below and lending its glow to the melting snowfields. Can you tell which shots are Instagrammed and which ones are straight out of the DSLR?

Winding down …

FRISCO —Though the equinox is still a few weeks away, the last day of February marks the end of the meteorological winter, so you might see your local TV forecaster talking about spring. Here in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, this may well go down in history as one of the mildest winters on record, as both low and high temperatures ran well above average for weeks on end. We still had our share of snow and frost, but if these past few months are a harbinger of global warming, then we’re probably in trouble. Wouldn’t it be sad if our kids and grandkids couldn’t enjoy the gorgeous frozen landscapes shown in this set?

Branching out …


FRISCO — Reaching for the sky and connected to the Earth, trees really do help illustrate how connected all the the planet’s systems really are, from chemical processes deep underground, to atmospheric cycles that change seasonal levels of carbon dioxide. The mountain pine beetle outbreak that spread across the West in the recent past helped generate a greater appreciation for trees and forests, making people understand that we can’t take any part of our complex life-support system for granted.

Road trip revisited

FRISCO — Oh, the amazing Dr. Seuss colors you can create when you have an incredible digital darkroom like an iPhone at your fingertips!

Winter wonders …


FRISCO — Exploring in winter requires a little more effort than just slipping on a pair of flip-flops for a casual summer jaunt to the beach, but it’s well worth the effort, especially if you’re a shutterbug. Make sure your camera batteries are fully charged, look for a pair of thin glove liners so you can operate your camera without getting frostbite, and then wander out into the winter landscapes with your eyes wide open. This set is compiled from the freeze-up season, when the world is in transition.

Sky shots, mostly …


FRISCO —Some lovely January days recently, with a bit of a thaw, although it’s far from being a total meltdown. Summit County has been on the ragged fringe of the storm track the past few weeks, which is good for photography (maybe not so great for skiing). But it means that we get wave clouds stacking dramatically over the high peaks – check out this Instagram timelapse video to see how they move – and gusty winds help fill in some of the many tracks criss-crossing the snowfields, creating the visual illusion of pristine.
