Mountain Snow Scene
November 2, 2011 - Overnight we received six to eight inches of the upper Arkansas River Valley of Colorado. Snowstorms in Colorado are very common from November through April, but the novelty of a fresh layer of snow is very enchanting to photographers like me. This morning, I went for a modest drive on isolated dirt roads outside of Buena Vista, Colorado and came up with eight photos and two videos. I hope you enjoy them!

I live on this road. Look at that ice! Honestly, you get used to the snow and ice after awhile.

Needless to say, if you love skiing and/or snowboarding, you'll consider our region of Colorado to be a winter paradise! :)

I drove on Chaffee County Road 300, an isolated dirt road south of Buena Vista. In the summer, this area is a more happening place, as there are whitewater rafting expeditions launching nearby and a campground near Ruby Mountain. However today, I had the entire road to myself.

I included a self-portrait of myself. Good grief, what do you think of my bedhead?

Snow In Colorado Mountains Here's another view from Chaffee County Road 300.

Now the one objective I had was to photograph Mount Princeton, the towering mountain west of our town. I run a website ( in which I regularly take a photo of the mountain throughout the seasons. This particular shot was "okay", but I knew I could find something better ...

... a half mile up the road, I found the perfect beautiful snow scene with the mountain behind. Also, the clouds hovering over the summit had dissipated enough.
As I drove home, I snapped more pictures of the beautiful snow scenes with Mt. Princeton. You can never have enough pictures.

Snow on Tree Branches Back at my house, snow highlighted the branches of these cottonwood trees.
