Superb sunsets

SUMMIT COUNTY — I was gone for a large part of July, but did catch a few good sunsets along the shores of Dillon Reservoir before the water receded too far. The monsoon moisture that started building early in the month helped color the sky with clouds, and in mid-summer, the light lingers late, so there’s no rush to shoot. In July, sunset photography becomes a leisurely post-dinner activity, the best time of the day to linger in a scenic spot. Vote in the poll for your favorite July picture, with the winner to be featured in the 2013 Summit Voice calendar.

Morning photo: A short sunset series

Before and after the rains …

A fiery sunset looking west from near DIA is colored by wildfire haze.

By Bob Berwyn

SUMMIT COUNTY — It’s been a while since I posted a sunset series, and yesterday’s Facebook pic of the day became an instant classic, so I thought I would upload a few more images from recent sunsets, in particular, a set from Sunday night taken as the most recent batch of monsoon moisture started to lift out of the area. Post-storm sunsets often offer the best lighting, and Sunday was no exception. I also snapped a few shots of an apocalyptic-looking sunset just before the rains came to help quell the devastating Front Range wildfires. Continue reading

Summery skies

Evening glow.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Last week’s series of intense Front Range thunderstorms built up clouds that towered above the Continental Divide to be illuminated by the sun setting in the west. That was a recipe for some rather nice sunsets and cloudscapes. Continue reading

A few sunsets …

Sunset over Frisco.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Every now and then I can’t help but pick out a few sunset shots from here and there. And for as often as I’ve photographed sunsets from the meadows and wetlands near our house, I never get tired of it, and no two sunsets are alike. Continue reading

Morning photo: Florida revisited

Warm sunshine …

Colorful blue crabs caught near Boca Grande, Florida.

SUMMIT COUNTY — After taking our dogs for a walk on a chilly evening in Frisco, I warmed up by looking at some images from my last Florida visit. Snow is good, winter is lovely, but it’s nice to take break, at least mentally, every now and then!

Spongebob would feel right at home here ...

Brilliant!

The colors just kep intensifying during the sunset Friday evening, with deep reflections raging across the beaver ponds along Meadow Creek.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Mid-level clouds and a wedge of clear sky above Buffalo Mountain hinted at a colorful sunset Friday night, so I pried away from the laptop, grabbed the camera and strolled down Lagoon Drive toward the Meadow Creek wetlands. Sure enough, the clouds to the east, above the Continental Divide, were aglow. Once again, I forgot insect repellant, so I knew I was in for some bites, but never mind — it was worth it. For a couple of shots, I rolled up my pants and waded shin-deep into the water. Continue reading
