Blue Adams

As the seasons transition into Winter in Rocky Mountain National Park, lots of photographers will pack away their gear and avoid heading out to explore Rocky. Sometimes photography during the 'brown season' is not as rewarding as Summer and Fall photography, but with a little imagination and exploration opportunities abound. Adams Falls is slowly giving up its flow of water and freezing over for the long Winter months. Rocks and deadfall freeze over and make for a beautiful scene of water and ice. Technical Details: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 24-105mm F4 IS L

With Winter and the holidays approaching things around here are slowing down a bit. Work continues to repair damaged roads and property from the historic flooding in September but some sense of normalcy is beginning to return to the Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park and the northern Front Range.

It’s a good time to review images made over the past year and work on some that I may have placed on the back burner awaiting a second look. I like to look for some of my more subtle work to showcase. Photographing and showcasing icons is fun, but for me the real reward is in creating images of moments that may have gone unnoticed.

So as the seasons transition and from the endless opportunities of summer to the completion of the colorful displays of fall, it’s tempting to put the camera away for awhile and find other things to occupy one’s time. Amongst photographers this time of year is known as the ‘brown season’. Ironically, the more I look to photograph during the ‘brown season’ the more beauty and opportunities I find during mother natures demure transition.
