Photography in Ouray Colorado Excites Year Round

  
  
  

Picturesque Ouray Colorado Provides Dramatic Photo Ops

Winter in Ouray is quiet, peaceful and offers hotel guests a wonderful respite away from their busy and hectic lives at home.  It also offers photographers a wonderful backdrop for a night on the town!

Consider taking some nightshots of Ouray and the surrounding mountains.  With a full moon and snow laden mountainsides, it is surprising just how much light is available for some fun pictures, especially in the winter.  The warmer months of April and May can deliver snow covered streets and this added reflective power packs a punch.  The area is very quiet during this time of year too!

Here are some fun shots of Ouray taken in March, just after a light blanket of snow with a big, bright, nearly full moon and some clouds racing overhead.  The clouds are actually moving which is giving the photos that interesting look.  A wide angle (or ultra wide angle) lens, a solid tripod, and some caffeine produced these results.  These pictures were taken around midnight and the only "enhancement" included some cropping and image rotations (learned a bunch about my ultra wide angle lens).  The colors came out directly from the camera!

Very nice images for a beautiful area of Colorado! Ouray is amazing in any season and evidently at any time of the day or night.
