Morning photo: Some 2012 faves

Through the seasons

FRISCO —With 2012 all but over, it’s time to cull the archives one more time, get rid of images that are just cluttering up the hard drive, and posting a few others that tell the story of Summit County. It’s not easy picking out the “best” images based on technical or artistic criteria, so I just picked some the images that evoked the strongest emotional response as I scrolled through the files

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! Continue reading “Morning photo: Some 2012 faves”


Morning photo: The break of dawn

Magical moments

Sunrise over Dillon Reservoir.

By Bob Berwyn

SUMMIT COUNTY — There’s a moment, perhaps a few moments, right around sunrise when the light is as good as it’s ever going to get. It’s pure magic, really, and if, as a photographer, you’re in the right place when it happens, then all that you need is the technical know-how, and maybe a few good lenses. Sometimes it doesn’t always come out the way you expected, and other times, when you get home and download the images, all you can say is, “Wow!” Continue reading “Morning photo: The break of dawn”

Morning photo: Summit gallery

SUMMIT COUNTY — Sometimes I’m amazed at how many reasonably good photos I’ve been able to take within just a few mile radius of our home in Frisco. Even though the scenic backdrop doesn’t change all that much, there is always some new element of light or clouds or reflections that makes the view seen brand new. In the last few days, I’ve picked out a few of my favorites and created a brand new gallery at my Imagekind site exclusively with Summit Country landscape shots. I hope you’ll check it out, perhaps buy a print (you can also preview and order them with different mattes and frames) and pass the info along to your friends. The gallery is online here.

Morning photo: First light

The early morning hours …

SUMMIT COUNTY — I’ve been getting up early the past few weeks to do some sunrise photography — plus it’s a good excuse to get some exercise for me, and the dogs. Yesterday morning was wonderful, with a broken low cloud deck creating a dramatic scene above the reservoir and around our local peaks. Other days, I use the reservoir surface as close-up mirror to enhance foreground lighting. In any case, it’s never the same twice, so I never get tired of photographing these scenes.

Morning photo: Landscape studies

Light and snow …

Evening falls over Buffalo Peak.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Looking for new light in familiar places is one of my favorite parts of shooting landscapes and the partly cloudy skies and variable spring weather the past few days have really helped make some old familiar scenes look fresh and new.

I love the way this image progresses from the warm tones in the grass on the right to the cool blue shadows at far left.

Morning photo: Sunny start, snowy evening


Saturday started with a brilliant sunrise, as the sun was able to get a foothold beneath the oncoming storm clouds.

SUMMIT COUNTY — The sun peaked through early morning Saturday, but it was already apparent that a storm was starting to move in, with winds gradually shifting from a warm southwesterly flow, to west, to northwest, the favored direction for snowfall in the north-central mountains. Here’s how it looked around the reservoir at dawn, and then late in the afternoon, when the snow began to fly. Continue reading “Morning photo: Sunny start, snowy evening”
