Yep, another Outdoor Retailer show bites the dust. We got quite a bit done in Utah — mostly of the white variety. Have a good sense of where backcountry skiing gear is headed for next season, so that’ll help with the next 365 blog posts.
Drive back to Colorado went well, though we couldn’t find the Maybell shortcut that connects Rock Springs to Meeker, Colorado. If anyone has clear directions for that please share them, perhaps leave a comment.
|Something different. Got out the digicam and did some light painting tonight from the front seat of our truck. 3 or 4 seconds at F8 seems to do the trick quite nicely, manual focus set to infinity, ISO 100. Move the camera around in various patterns and see what happens. Traffic lights and street lights make good subjects (so do campfires and headlamps). Since all good photos are supposed to evoke emotion, how about this one speaking of how you feel while walking around a trade show? Works for me.|
