At the point …

FRISCO —Watching the weather forecast the last few days, it was clear that our steady stream of spring moisture was about to run out, with a shift to more traditional late-June weather, which very often is dry and hot in the high country. Nothing against clear, blue-sky days and starry nights, but I love clouds, especially for taking photos, so when I headed out Thursday evening for a nearby spot here in Frisco to try and capture a few cloud scenes. One building thundercloud in particular caught my eye. Looking east from my vantage point, it looked the cloud was probably located over western Jefferson County, maybe above Evergreen, and it grew visibly, straight up, generating a classic anvil head within about 30 minutes, interesting to see because it happened late in the evening, which is usually when the clouds start to collapse as they lose the heat of the day.

A June photo jam …

FRISCO —I take most of my photos within a couple of miles of home here in Frisco partly because it seems kind of wasteful to drive around solely for the purpose of photography. But during the onset of the wildflower season, I sometimes venture just a little farther, visiting some of my favorite spots in the Lower Blue Valley, north of Silverthorne. During these longest days of the year, sunlight streams into the valley from the north, adding a new dimension to the Gore Range in the evenings. And this year, thanks to all the spring rain and snow, the wildflowers are going crazy, even in some of the dry, lower elevation sagebrush meadows, which are currently carpeted with colorful blooms.

Summer scenes

FRISCO —It hasn’t snowed in the past five days, so it’s probably safe to say that the short and sweet summer season has arrived in the Colorado High Country. The kayakers playing in Steamboat Springs last weekend during the Yampa Riverfest would certainly agree, and rainbows over the wetlands are another sure sign of the season.

A little bit of everything …

FRISCO — Finding bliss the Colorado mountains is easy. All you have to do is open your eyes and your heart and take few deep breaths to wash away the clatter and clutter of daily life. Stop for a moment along your daily commute and find a spot where you can feel the power of the peaks, or get up early and watch your backyard birds go about their daily business to feel the rhythm of life in the high country. If so moved, grab a camera and snap a couple of shots of your own and share them with your friends around the world!

Finally!


FRISCO —After weeks of rain — literally — skies cleared Friday evening, offering the first colorful sunset in quite a while. I’m not complaining about the moisture. After a dry winter, the wet may was welcome, but it was great to see the sky emerge, with the promise of some warmer and drier weather ahead. The iPhone pano mode worked well to capture some of the subtleties and contrasts in the evening sky.
