A slice of skyline along the shore of Dillon Reservoir in Frisco, Colorado.
FRISCO — I figured that, before winter really gets rolling would be a good time to clean up the photo archives, which meant going back through the autumn months and trying to keep the number of images to a somewhat manageable size. Plus, looking back at the images of the most recent season is a good reality check for the weather. Our day-to-day memory can play tricks, but photos don’t lie. We enjoyed a spectacular autumn in the Colorado high country, with just a bit of early snow, but generally mild weather through September and especially in late October, when a few weeks with temps running 10 to 15 degrees above normal made many people wonder if winter would ever show up.

Watching winter …

FRISCO — Sure, we all love snow, but I say ice is underrated. There’s such beauty in watching winter take hold across streams, lakes, reservoirs and ponds. Later in the winter it will all be covered with snow, so now’s the time to venture out to the edge of the water and watch the weird and wonderful development of the mountain cryosphere. At times, you can hear the ice sing and ping as it stretches, cracks and grows. In other places, where shards of ice are blown by the wind, it can sound like thousands of little ringing bells.

October storm clears the Tenmile Range near Frisco, Colorado
FRISCO — Is there anything better than the sight of a storm clearing over a big mountain range, with lifting clouds and broken bits of sunshine streaming in? After a string of warm and sunny days, a quick storm passed through Summit County Oct. 20, leaving the higher elevations frosted with some new snow. As always, the clearing storm created stunning vistas of mountains and clouds.

An otherworldly January susnet over Dillon Reservoir and the Continental Divide.
FRISCO — Tis the season … Even though it’s not Halloween yet, it is time to start thinking about putting together the annual Summit Voice calendar, which you can always custom order at our Redbubble gallery. Like every year, we’re asking for a little reader feedback to help choose each month’s image. And, as always, I had a hard time narrowing the choice to these five photos, all snapped in Summit County, Colorado. The sunset scenes were all taken on a single day, probably one of the most phenomenal sunsets I’ve seen in Colorado, with the sky going from orange and yellow to bruised purple, back to more orange. Comment in the box at the end of this post and tell us which one is your favorite shot! Continue reading

An eclipese-tinged glow over the Rockies, photographed from Loveland Pass, Colorado.
FRISCO — There are times when the light in the mountains totally blows my mind, and when it’s easy to understand why mountains have long been considered sacred, and even dwelling places of the gods. It seems, sometimes, that if one could only gaze upon the peaks long enough, all the mysteries of the universe would be revealed. So there are times that, after taking a few photos, I set down the camera, hoping to gain a little more insight into this great wonderful world of ours. Continue reading
