GOLD RUSH – FALL FOLIAGE, THROUGH THE LENS OF A PRO

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Gold Rush – Capturing the Beauty of Steamboat’s Fall Foliage

Fall in Steamboat is as beautiful as it is fleeting, which is why we want so desperately to be able to capture the moment with a photograph. How many times have you tried with your smart phone camera and felt like the image didn’t do it justice? We turned to Corey Kopischke, a professional photographer who has spent most of his life chasing light and seizing the moment one frame at a time for some tips.

A former freestyle skier, he learned a lot about photography from working as an athlete in numerous photoshoots over the years. Kopischke was never formally trained in photography, but learned firsthand how it was done in the field. “I would bring my camera and shoot over the photographer’s shoulder,” he says. After living in Steamboat for 28 years and working for Steamboat magazine as a senior staff photographer and part time photo editor, he has logged in a lot of days shooting fall colors.

Sometimes An Indoor Kitchen Just Isn’t Enough

Sometimes An Indoor Kitchen Just Isn’t Enough

Outdoor kitchens are in high demand, there’s no doubt about it. But just like their indoor relative, the best outdoor kitchens are designed with careful consideration. Here is what we consider a perfect example:

Function & Flow

Having separate wet, cold, hot and dry zones with ample counter space makes prepping food, cooking and cleaning up afterwards that much easier.

An open air chefs kitchen

Location

Ideally your outdoor kitchen will be located close to your indoor kitchen as inevitably you will have to dash in for items. This kitchen also has a fabulous sliding pass through window to the indoor kitchen area, the ultimate in convenience.

Adjacent to the outdoor dining area, the cook will always feel included

Comfort

Create an inviting social space so that the cook can mingle with the guests. And don’t forget lighting in your design – look for a combination of task and mood lighting.

The Magic of Fall in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Spectacular landscapes and crisp fresh air, possibly the most magical time of the year!

Fabulous color can be found throughout Routt County at the moment, and is there a better place to enjoy it than from the sanctuary of your own home? Well, certainly not if you are the owner of 2890 Bucks Path in Elkins Meadow. This 7,400+ custom home is nestled in the mountains, mere minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs. Take a glimpse of fall from a new perspective:

Whether inside the home or out, the varying hues of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown makes a dramatic statement. To put it simply, it’s breathtaking.

The current owners describe the neighborhood and environment surrounding their home as national park-esque…  and we can certainly see why.
