A Week Of Colorado Snow Photos

Colorado Snow Scenes From Leadville, CO To Buena Vista, CO - February 21-27, 2010

THINK. SNOW. ALWAYS. Colorado has had a great winter so far ...
February 2010 - Winter is alive and well in Leadville, Buena Vista and the high elevation regions of Colorado. In fact, March and April are usually our snowiest months. If you're physically active, now is a perfect time for skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating, etc. Because I work in Leadville and live in Buena Vista, I always have opportunities to photograph the snowy scenery. Happy winter!

Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive
14ers Mount Elbert and Mount Massive create the backdrop of a wonderful snow scene.

Snow Photos

The snow began to fall on Friday afternoon and with the exception of a few breaks, it continually sleeted and snowed well into Sunday evening. That night, I was inspired to pull over to capture the entrance sign for Buena Vista, Colorado with the flash highlighting snowflakes in the air. :)
Snowy Road Driving north on U.S. Highway 24, north of Buena Vista. This area is close to "The Numbers" whitewater rafting starting point on the Arkansas River.

I was happy with nearly perfect lighting and sharpness of the snowy contours of the road.
