Autumn Weather

As I mentioned in my last post, we got some interesting weather while we were in Colorado – rain, mist, and even some snow. We stayed in the area longer than we originally planned to try to photograph some of this weather, hanging out with our friend Charlotte Gibb during some of that time, and enduring rain in hopes of photographing aspens in the fog or snow.

In landscape photography, we tend to associate weather with big landscapes, but mist or snow can add a lot to smaller-scale scenes as well. I’m not picky; if conditions lend themselves to photographing large-scale views, then that’s what I’ll photograph. If more intimate landscapes seem more interesting, then that’s what I’ll pursue. We had a great time photographing both big and small scenes in Colorado, in all kinds of weather, and here are some more of my favorites.
