About a year ago we visited the Gomde Buddhist retreat in the foothills of the Austrian Alps, using it as a base camp for some daytrips to the surrounding countryside. But some of the best images from that week-long sojourn were taken right around the retreat, featuring sunsets with a soft, caressing sky and spectacular colors. In between hosting Buddhist readings and other events, Gomde is an oasis of calm from a world that seems to be increasingly spinning out of control, well worth a visit if you’re traveling through that area.

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.

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 “Morning photo: A short sunset series”→
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 “Morning photo: Cloudscapes”→
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: Sky fire”→
