One More!

My last post, ‘Endless Winter’ described our epic 2022-23 season. And it didn’t end there … it’s snowing today, April 25th! We got about 6 inches of wet, heavy snow with the temps hovering around 32-35 degrees. I really hadn’t planned on posting more winter shots. I thought that viewers, and maybe even myself, might be getting tired of snowy landscapes. In addition, April was not a great month for my photography. Besides having a lot of gray days, melting snow reveals ugly, brown vegetation. So, since I haven’t posted in a while, and our endless winter continues, here’s just ‘one more’ from last month!
UPDATE: Woke up the next morning (April 26th) to about a foot of new snow!

My passion for photography has rewarded me with the opportunity to examine the world carefully. My approach is intuitive and I choose to impose no constraints – leaving myself open only to possibilities. As a professional designer I am drawn to images that offer a strong composition, pattern and rhythm. Creating images with a unique perspective while sometimes pushing the limits of traditional composition 'rules' excites me. Landscapes, nature subjects and things from the past are common themes in my work.

    1. Thanks Joseph and thank you for subscribing to my blog! Even people who have lived here all their lives are astonished by our epic winter. It’s been snowing since early November and I woke up to about 10″ of wet, heavy snow this morning. I hope to be able to make some new spring images soon!

  1. I feel you. We got similar weather yesterday after a few sudden “summer days”. I’ve learned here that winter can always return until the Norwegian National Day on the 17th of May. Until then, all types of weather are possible here. Lovely image. It’s never a bad thing to look at beautiful, snowy landscapes (especially from the comfort of my couch 😉).

    1. Hi Kewtiebird! We have had significant snow storms in May too. Woke up to about10” this morning. Hopefully it will melt fast with expected temps nearing 50 degrees. Thanks for visiting!

    1. I’m glad you can still appreciate them … it’s getting harder for me to! Ten inches out there and Brent is in Jersey. Wet and heavy so I guess I’m house bound for a couple of days while it melts. XOXO

  2. Than you Denise. Having seen no snow on the ground and of course no mountains, I appreciate one final reminder of how beautiful winter can be, even in April.

    1. Hi Barry! When everyone puts their shovels away it usually snows. It was a good one yesterday … about 10” out there! Glad you aren’t as tired of seeing it as much as me!

      1. Denise, I do understand that winters in Colorado are long and hard (even if beautiful) and suspect that I would be tired of it by now if I lived where you do.

    1. Thanks Carlos! I like the snow but am over it … at least until next winter! It will be a while before anyone can get up the jeep roads to the mountain basins. Wildflowers will be late which will not be good for the many wildflower workshops planned in July. Appreciate your visit and comment!

        1. A 4×4 high clearance is needed … they often have very scary sections where only 1 vehicle will fit. Those going uphill have right of way since backing up downhill is not good. Most jeep roads were created when mining was big here.

    1. Thanks Diana. This last load is melting pretty fast with 50+ degree temps. Happy you aren’t tired of seeing my snow scenes … I only post current work so it’s all I got! 😊

  3. Such a fantastic image!

    A friend of mine lives in Finland and he changed his winter tyres to summer tyres a week or so ago… so, of course, he’s had a few days of snow since! 😀

    1. Thanks Deborah! There is some concern here where there are buildings along the rivers. So far no problems but most of the snowpack is still up there. Most of the rivers have steep embankments.

    1. Thank you. Our Loghill Mesa is at 7,487 feet. The tallest mountains are 14,000 (the 14ers), like Mount Sneffels which I’ve posted a lot. The mountains here are in the Sneffels Range but about 13,000.

  4. Lovely! I can never get too much snow. However, this has really been an odd season. That last week of April we had snow in town and by the first week in May we at 85 degrees in town! Crazy.
