A look back …
Lifting clouds form a pleasing backdrop to this aspen scene on Swan Mountain Road.
FRISCO — The fall color season is just about over, at least at our elevation, but that’s why photos are good! Watching the trees race through their seasonal change is always inspiring, a sign of the inexorable force of nature. In looking back at some of the images, it amazes me how fast the change happens, resulting in different patterns of light and color nearly every day. These images span about a week in Summit County, just before the first wintry storms swept through.

Sweet September light
A slanting September sun adds some side-lighting to this Dillon Reservoir scene.
FRISCO — I was hoping to post a set of new snow pictures this morning, but it looks like the storm passed a bit to the south and east so we’ll have to wait just a bit longer for the first significant valley accumulation. Instead, I sorted through the last few weeks worth of fall images to find a few that tell the story of the season — slanting light that changes everything, late-blooming fall flowers and some serenely floating leaves. It’ll all change soon enough when the snows arrive! Continue reading

Morning contrast over the Continental Divide.

Get out and get after it, and don’t forget your camera! Check out my Instagram feed for daily updates, and visit this Fine Art America gallery for for Colorado landscape and nature shots.

Layers of clouds and color over Dillon Reservoir.
FRISCO — We’re getting near the time of year that dishes up the most intense sky colors, as the first autumnal weather systems mix together with the remnants of monsoonal moisture. That means layers of clouds at different elevations, like in the top shot in this set — look closely and you’ll see soft, gray cumulus hugging the distant peaks, while a mid-elevation cloud deck helps reflect light and color back toward the ground. And in just a few weeks, as the upper air wind patterns shift for real, we’ll start seeing some of those great wave clouds building over the Rockies, a sure sign of the changing season!

Ready for summer?
It’s the first day of summer, and I’m missing winter already!
FRISCO — We’re celebrating the first day of summer by looking back through the archives to see how the transition between seasons unfolded this year. For a while, it felt like winter was going to last forever, with snowfall well in May. But finally, the winter pattern gave way to what passes for spring in the high country. As always, Mother Nature seems to be in a really hurry to shift into summer mode, with wildflowers abloom even before the last few snow berms melt. If you enjoy our daily snapshots, visit our online gallery at Fine Art America to check out our collection of landscape and nature images from Summit County.

It’s about time!
Check out how the willow catkin first opens on the sun-exposed top side. I used my old Fuji Finepix compact digital for this because it has a good macro function.
FRISCO — Slowly, almost grudgingly at first, spring advances with hints of green fuzz at the edge of some meadows and willows budding in the wetlands. Sometimes I have to remind myself that May in the high country is the equivalent of March at lower elevations, and that’s OK. It’s kind of exciting to see all that seasonal action compressed into a single month. Visit our online gallery at Fine Art America for more Summit County landscape and nature images. Continue reading
