Winter Wonderland

Today we headed up to the Cascades to go skiing. Due to the dramatically foggy weather, we appeared to be skiing in the Alps at times. The snow was actually not too bad, for Washington state. Afterward, cocoa was had by all and then, in the technicolor twilight, I grabbed a few last shots before we ventured back to the dull flatlands of home.

Pizza and a tow after a year with no practice. He was soon zipping down the blue runs.

She’s got it, though. Look at the mountains!

Only one of these two was switched to black and white. It was that kind of day, color-wise.

Lots of grays and blues, depending on the light at any given moment.

Okay, no fair, these are black-and-white.

Cocoa and the fire! God, but my family are good looking…

Obligatory normally-exposed bathroom self-portrait (see header for over-exposed version from last winter).

Evening brought out the amazing colors. These are virtually unaltered (virtually).

  1. Gorgeous shots! I don’t know why but I was curious about the way you hold your camera and noticed that you’ve been consistent for at least a year. 😉

    • Thanks, Hopeful. I’m not sure what’s up with the way I hold it. It just seems like the way I should hold that camera. It’s quite heavy, compared to a fully-auto compact camera, and all the controls are on the right, including the thumb wheel and the shutter button, so I guess that my left hand is just stabilizing/staying out of the way.
