Road trip revisited

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.

Colorado skies


FRISCO — When I woke up about 6 a.m. Sunday morning I saw a thin sliver of clear sky on the eastern horizon — the perfect setup for some early morning color. Of course you never know exactly what you’re going to get. Sometimes it all fades away, and other times, the sky really pops. All the images in this set were taken in a 45 minute span just off the Dillon Dam Road, showing the incredible range of hues and tones that a single sunrise can deliver.

Sweetest season?

FRISCO — “Came for the winters, stayed for the summers,” is a common phrase in the Colorado high country, where ski bums have flocked for decades to sample powder and beer, then settled down to become part of the state’s mountain communities. It’s a season that all the sweeter because it’s so short. Sometimes it seems like the first wildflowers bloom just a few days after the last snowbanks melt away, so fast that if you blink you miss it. On the other hand, the days are long, so you can make each one count!

Winter begins …


FRISCO — Once more, our Blue Marble has slipped into another celestial phase, marking the northern hemisphere’s maximum tilt away from the sun. The low sun angle often helps create dramatic landscapes, as the snow takes on an otherwordly glow, enveloping the mountains with soft light and long shadows. Enjoy the season!
