The San Juan Mountains are finally off to a good start after a dry fall. Just a few days before the mountains were nearly bare making this a much needed storm.  I went up last night with my faithful beagle-mix companion and ran through knee deep powder at 10K.
This second shot was taken well after sunset at the magical hour when the belt of venus takes over with it’s vivid violet and deep blue colors. It was bitter cold which made for nice crisp colors on the horizon.

 With frozen fingers, I couldn’t feel the shutter button but managed to get some shots off but paid the price on the way home during the thaw. I really need to bring a butane burner along…

Wishing everyone a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving!
