Here’s the first of many fun nuggets of joy from last weekends backpacking trip. We covered about 17 miles in three days. On Saturday I wandered off alone all day to see where it would take me. One of the places I wound up was in a huge field of flowers, ferns, blueberries, and huckleberries. The oddity being that it was on a 45 degree slope. When in this situation on the decent there are two ways to get hike down it. You can look for difficult footing and make your way carefully, OOooorrrr you can slide on your butt like a madman!
Here are a few of the engagement photos I shot a few days ago. Congrats to Kody and Crystal! A finer snowboarding pair you’ll never meet!
We spent the first half of the day playing in the snow, and then for the second half, we took our final snowboarding runs for the season!
We wandered through the small cabins.
A few times we climbed snow piles and snuck onto decks.
Then we followed the trail back to the cars.
They held hands while I wandered behind.
To which my camera could do no justice.
A perfect last day in the snowy mountains!
Today was the first official ride day of the season. We loaded up four bikes and four people in one car and rode four parks. And it was glorious.
It’s always an impressive feat fitting four bikes in the trunk. Though with the improvements through the day I swear you could fit five in there by the end.
I was doing stunts too, at like a 95% of the time stunting to 5% camera(ing). Spring has now officially started in my book!
A few days ago I shot some photographs for Fingers Duke’s new clothing items with a lovely friend of mine named Marti. Here are a few of my favorites!
Shooting people in this manner isn’t really my forte, but it’s always fun to play with new and different things. I feel that I stretched the single available light fairly well. Thankfully I had my reflector handy!
I saw a few rainbows today, and promptly felt bad for all the dogs that didn’t understand why their owners suddenly stopped walking and began staring at the sky. And in a true dog fashion I forgot about it and started smelling things.
