Mount Evans Sunrise

I was never really much of a morning person. I liked to stay up late, and sleep in. Having a child changed that. For the first time in my life I took naps. I also tried to sleep whenever my kid was asleep. After all, if I didn’t sleep when he slept, I might not have gotten any at all. Fortunately, that didn’t last forever, but he was a morning person. For about 9 years, I was a reluctant morning person. The benefit was that I was awake to witness sunrise, and when you have a view of Mount Evans, it can be pretty spectacular.

Mount Evans Obscured

I wanted to photograph Mount Evans in every type of weather, even if that meant the mountain wasn’t actually visible. Sometimes the mountain would be visible and then obscured, as weather conditions changed throughout the day. On this particular day, April 30, 2011, Mount Evans was visible earlier in the day, but was obscured by clouds and storms later.

Changing Weather

One of my favorite things about watching and photographing Mount Evans from the same location for more than a year was watching how the weather would change. Day to day, and season to season

One of my favorite things about watching and photographing Mount Evans from the same location for more than a year was watching how the weather would change. Day to day, and season to season there were obviously changes. But, more dramatic were the changes that would occur in one day, or even within the span of an hour.

Some days the sunrise would be clear and sunny, a storm would roll in during the afternoon, followed by a spectacular sunset.
