October moods

Meadow Creek wetlands, Frisco, Colorado.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Even once the bright aspen leaves are gone, the autumn season reveals a rich palette of warm hues. One of my favorite places to watch the changing seasons and changing light is just a five minute walk from my home, along the Meadow Creek wetlands in Frisco. A couple of nights ago, Leigh and strolled there with the dogs, thinking that we’d missed the brightest colors of the evening, but at low-light settings the Nikon managed to capture some exquisite shadings and tones.

Earth tones - and another lipstick sky in Summit County.
Golden grasses capture the last lingering bit of sunlight.
Just for comparison, here is a shot from sunrise last November, looking the same direction as the image above.

  1. bob, either you gotta move, or build yourself another deck-irnoically, my favorite shot is the one with ‘hand of man’, the lights of frisco, lending scale to ‘the wetlands’.
