Animas River Fall Sunset Reflections

Fall Colors are quickly fading here in Southwest Colorado but I was able to capture one more shot outside of Durango, CO along the beautiful Animas River Valley. 

The Animas River has taken a beating from a record drought and all the debris runoff from the 416 fire but today on this shot, the river showed its brilliance and hope for a better tomorrow…

Signs of Spring – San Juan Mountains

It’s been a record breaking dry Winter but nature goes on with a touch of green grass coming up providing these Elk with a nutritious treat as they wait in the lower elevations to give birth to their calves in early May.

Winter Fresh

The the lack of snow this winter has been unprecedented Making January and February one of SW Colorado’s driest months on record… This time last year, we were breaking the all time record for snowfall.  Two extremes only a year apart.

Recently we finally received such much needed snowfall so I didn’t waste anytime taking advantage of it.  I went out in the middle of it soaking in the large flakes which seemed to strange as the temperatures have been springlike most of the winter so far.  Plants that usually die off in December are still going strong.

Well after Sunset the Snow had stopped Leaving behind a beautiful white glow. I was atop a local mountain taking it all in with the city light below reflecting off the low hanging clouds creating a unique reddish glow.

The  next morning after the storm is when the featured picture was taken.  The storm had gone but it left behind a thick fog layer that is unusual in our area. When I first arrived, everthing around me was completely shrouded.  Then as the sun was starting to rise, the fog started to quickly lift which only left me a short time to capture this rare beauty.  As soon as the trees started appearing all around me I started clicking away playing with different exposures that best portrayed what I was witnessing.

It was a peaceful morning, which provided for a unique experience  not often seen in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado.
