Morning photo: Pogonip

The frozen mists of Dillon Reservoir

FRISCO — It’s not so often that we get to enjoy our own little Pogonip fog here in Summit County, so when those days arrive, photographers tend to get a little excited. After all, it’s not often that the trees along Dillon Reservoir look like this. It’s pretty cool to see the mist turn directly into ice without going through a liquid stage, kind of like being inside an icy cloud.

Many of the images in Summit Voice photo essays are available in our Fine Art America online gallery, and there’s also Summit County gallery at our ImageKind website. You can also order images by contacting me directly at bberwyn@comcast.net. It’s a great way to support independent online journalism!
