|Central Colorado this weekend, secret location. Snow is in midwinter or late winter phase meaning all but northerly surfaces crust fairly soon after storms. With that in mind, the goods are easy to find. This is Chandler doing what kids tend to do when they see a windrow. Can you spot the other photographer? Please click image for massive enlargement.|
|My friend Boone’s camera, LCD with favorite photo he took of his son Jamie tasting his turn. We had the new Ski Journal Photobook along for photographic inspiration, I figured this shot would have looked just as good on the cover as what the Bellingham boys picked, so here you go.

|Another shot of Jamie. Looking at Ski Journal got me inspired to try something other than just shooting up the hill at the skier. Problem is you usually have to give up a few turns to get a good position for a cross shot — and when you’re doing it human powered it’s not like you get another chance anytime soon. Heroic sacrifice, huh Jamie? Click image to enlarge.|
