Late season snowfall blankets the townscape of Dillon, CO

A blast of late season snowfall had me huddled indoors for much of the day. But as dusk settled on the freshly blanketed landscape, impulsively I grabbed my camera and headed outside. “What the hell am I doing, its freezing out here?!” Such were the negative thoughts drifting through my head as my hands went numb. But having just watched a spate of photography workhop style videos on YouTube provided an fresh injection of enthusiasm for the craft. I dug a little deeper, trudging my way through the hushed streets where, eerily, nary a soul stirred, until eventually striking upon this place, at the moment, the magic moment when ambient and manmade light fell into balance. Not bad for a you tube watching house dweller. Now…. ¬†about that glass of wine!
