October 2009

Freshly fallen snow atop fall foliage

In the spirit of Autumn and the unusually cool and wintry October being experienced across the Rockies and adjacent Great Plains, I decided to pull an image out of the Mike Umscheid Photography vault from 4 years ago. I documented a rare, very early season snowstorm across the Front Range of the Rockies on October 10, 2005. This storm produced very heavy, wet snow accumulating 10 to 25″ around the Palmer Divide area. The storm caused fairly substantial tree damage and power outages, but some beauty also came out of it as well with fresh snow cover atop leaves in full color. Details of this image: Nikon D70 body, 31mm focal length (47mm virtual focal length), 1/800s @ f/8.0, ISO 400. Taken October 10, 2005 at 10:34am MDT in Castle Rock, Colorado
