if you really think about it,
if you really think about it,
This morning I woke up early to take pictures of the sunrise. I had a certain picture in mind that I was hoping to get, and I had planned it out -- a certain angle of the mountains with sunlight hitting snow capped peaks. The weather, on the other hand, did not cooperate. Because I was not able to get the shot that I wanted, I had to look in other areas for beauty. This pushed me as a photographer. The shot that I was hoping for will just have to wait for another day!

β€œHow glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!” - John Muir

I really like this view point of Mount Antero. I like how the shapes and lines of the mountain ridge interact with the sunlight and shadows. Mount Princeton has always been a favorite mountain of mine, and Mount Antero is making a good case for second!

I took this picture a week ago when we got some overnight snowfall. I love driving through this area because the views of the mountains are largely unobstructed. This picture was taken during the morning, and I really like the shadows on Mount Yale. I'm excited to return to this spot when we get more snow!

Who doesn’t love a curvy tree? Found in the San Isabel forest. I want to live in #chaffeecounty so bad! Did you know CO has a banana belt from Pueblo to Buena Vista? That means mild winters / best hiking in the winter! Love it.

Another shot from the sunrise the other morning at the Collegiate Peaks Scenic Overlook. What was interesting about this morning was that the first light was prettier than the actual sunrise. I really enjoy the colors in this shot and how the mountains interact with the sky. Mount Princeton is the massive mountain on the right, and Mount Antero is the mountain on the left third of the image. Both mountains tower over Buena Vista with elevations over 14,000 feet.

There is a sense of excitement when photographers stake out for the sunrise. Driving to the location in the dark and cold, one never knows how pretty the sunrise will be. As landscape photographers, we can plan all we want, but at the end of the day, we are at the mercy of nature. To me, that is the fun part of photography.

Went to check on a winter favorite this afternoon: No doubt, the #winfield trails are still very much open for business! No problem getting a truck back past the cemetery, and the snowpack’s barely a one out of ten on the trails on the southern facing slopes. It was cold enough at 3PM (high 30s) for gloves, tights and layered tops, but no wind and no precipitation feels pretty great for November in the #Sawatch. Won’t be long until #CR390 is a skin track and snowmobile race course, though... or an avalanche path!

This morning was beautiful at the Collegiate Peaks Scenic Overlook. I loved the colors on Mt. Princeton and in the sky before the sun completely rose. The mix of purple and blue was quite nice! The chilly morning and drive in the dark were worth it.

The mountains before tonight's snowfall. 
I loved playing around with dimensions of this photograph. Normally, one wants a clear shot of the mountains, but I enjoyed taking pictures with the low clouds.

A couple days ago, hucklebear and I went a'walkin' across the Arkansas rio to watch the sunrise. Alpine glow and a dingo morning constitution.

Awestruck by the sunrise lightshow over the valley a few days ago. I love this place where I dwell, in case you didn't notice. 
I'm drinking coffee in anticipation of the London NFL game, which airs at 7:30 am here in the mountains. What are your plans for the day?
