Winter glory …
Sunrise pano, Dillon Reservoir, Colorado
Crazy skies over Summit County, Colorado.
Sunset over Peak 1.
Frozen mists over the Blue River Valley turn the sun into a diamond.
Wicked looking wave clouds stacking up over the Continental Divide in Summit County, Colorado. January 2014.
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.

FRISCO —Sometimes the sunrise colors in the Colorado Rockies are beyond words and almost beyond belief — and that’s when a camera is good. This set includes a series of images starting in November, when Dillon Reservoir was still unfrozen, to just a few days ago (Sunday morning) up on Swan Mountain. Follow our Instagram feed

What would summer be without mushrooms? And these are some of the coolest.
Mayflower Gulch, high summer.
Summer light in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
A summer double rainbow in Frisco, Colorado.
Peak summer wildflowers at 12,000 feet in the San Juans, near Silverton, Colorado.
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!

Snow cometh …
Morning alpenglow on the Gore Range.
Sunrise over Mt. Guyot, Summit County, Colorado.
Winter along the Snake River.
Low clouds hover over Silverthorne. Colorado with Buffalo Mountain as a backdrop.
FRISCO — Winter is working its magic across the high country of Colorado, painting the mountains and valleys with a glittery blanket of snow. These shots highlight the many different ways light can manifest on freshly fallen snow, all taken on different days, but at about the same time each day, within an hour after sunrise. Enjoy the season!

November scenes …
Light frost on the grass and an exceptional morning glow in early November.
FRISCO — I’ve often said November is the best month for sunrise photos in Summit County and this year was no exception. The atmospheric conditions — with frequent formation of wave clouds over the Rockies — seem to combine with a good sun angle to create almost unbelievably brilliant scenes, especially with still unfrozen waters of Dillon Reservoir as a mirror, and best of all, you don’t have to get up all that early to catch it, with the best colors peaking between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Check out our daily photo feed on Instagram and visit our Fine Art America online gallery for more landscape shots from Colorado.
