Dark Sky, Fall

Since Fall is giving way to Winter… I thought I’d post some more of my Fall photos. The mountains and weather patterns here in Aspen really provide some exceptional lighting in the mornings & evenings. This was the view of Smuggler Mountain, as I was walking into my condo a few months ago. So striking, with the sunshine highlighting the aspens, as they are starting to burst into full color, and the dark sky providing the contrasting backdrop.

Fall And Winter

It’s supposed to snow tonight, so I thought I’d share a shot I took last year, on an adventure up Basalt Mountain, about a month before I moved out here. It was probably the first snow of the year, and the leaves were still turning… the morning sun really made everything look beautiful, and it was so cool to see both Fall and Winter at the same time.
