FRISCO — Sometimes words are superfluous …

“Morning has broken …”


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.

Sweet summer shots


FRISCO — While we’ve had a longer-than-wanted January thaw this year, it is still mid-winter, no doubt about it, so it seemed like a good time to post a warm-up photo essay with some summer shots from Summit County and beyond. It’s always fun to go back through the summer archives because it’s such a short season, compared to our long winters, so there are a lot of images compressed into just a couple of months that show how suddenly and vividly the warm season can explode, and just as quickly fade, in the Colorado high country.

Cool in Colorado …


FRISCO — Just a short Sunday set featuring some “leftover” images from the past couple of weeks, including the strange solstice glow of the low winter sun and a stunning sunrise over the Blue River Valley.

Got glow?


FRISCO —Groovy colors in the mystical deep winter half-light of the solstice.

Mountains aglow …

FRISCO — There’s nothing better than a mountain sunrise or sunset on a crisp winter day, with deep snow all around to help diffuse the light and add sparkle to the air. For this set, I pulled a handful of images from the archives going back just a few weeks, starting around the time of the winter solstice.

Winter hues …


FRISCO — A couple of days ago I revisited one of my favorite photography spots along the Snake River, near Keystone, specifically to try and capture the many shades of blue and white that dominate winter light. The challenge is to get some detail in the bright white foreground and in the blue background shadows at the same time, which is only possible in a very short window of time (about 10 minutes) right after the sun rises but before it’s high enough to fully illuminate the background. The low sun angle also helps highlight details and texture in the snow cover.
