Hoping for some of this – soon!

FRISCO — Balmy temps linger into late October means no gloves needed — yet — for photography. A good thing or bad thing, depending on your perspective. If you’re a ski resort operator, you’re probably holding your breath, waiting for those cold nightime temps that enable full-scale snowmaking. Two major resorts have already announced that they’ll push back opening day of the ski season by at least a week. If you’re a cyclist, you’re probably enjoying some late-season laps around Dillon Reservoir or the snow-free ride up to Vail Pass. For now, enjoy the calm, because the winter storms are sure to arrive eventually!

Morning photo: Some colors!

Edit 101

Wild rose leaves turn brilliant orange in the early autumn chill.

FRISCO — Living in a place where about the half the year is defined by the whiteness of snow makes you appreciate the other half of the year — the colorful half — even more. And especially in the fall, when you know the land is about to be transformed into frozen stillness, it’s fun to get out and capture some of the last brilliant bits of color, accented in this set by some in-camera editing as well as some post-processing. All the images in this set, except the aspen panorama, were treated with iPhone photo apps to accentuate the rich autumn light.

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.

Bright as a berry …

Autumn berries.

FRISCO — A spectacular weekend in the Colorado high country, and as much as some skiers and snowboarders are eager for cold weather and snow, we’ll take the lingering summer-like weather for now. Winter is long enough, so enjoying a few balmy days in late October is a good thing. And with the weekend weather dominated by a subtropical flow, we even got some monsoon-like cloud cover to brighten up the morning and evening skies.

October snow …

This is what it looks like when it starts snowing in Colorado in October!

This is what it looks like when it starts snowing in Colorado in October!

FRISCO — Dramatic days in Summit County, with hulking storm clouds, wind and some significant valley snow, right on schedule. Pretty soon, we’ll be in the all-white mode, but for now, there’s still that fabulous clash of seasons, visible even through the kitchen window as the last few aspen leaves hang on under the onslaught of winter.

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
