One of my favorite times to be in the Rockies is almost here, Spring. While I love Fall and Winter, Spring is hard to beat photographically speaking. The storm clouds and bright foreground colors are just amazing. You can make so much happen with just a single afternoon drive. Like this one, where the storm clouds dropped down lots of moisture but the hills were just alive. Part of the joy comes from seeing the dull browns and grays turn into the luxurious greens, yellows, and reds. Only a couple more weeks.
