It seems like it's been a long time since I've tried to really intentionally create art. I love the action photography that I do, but it's not always...art. With my tiny Sony A6000 and my new Rokinon 12mm F/2 lens (super sharp! I'm really excited I bought it) I've been inspired to carry my camera more places. The saying is true, the most valuable camera is the camera you have with you.
A couple weekends ago I went on a solo tour of East Portal. It was right before new snow was coming into Colorado and I wanted to go up higher toward the Continental Divide than I'd been before to try and see a couloir a buddy skied a few days earlier. I don't go out solo often, but I had a great tour and took some time to take photographs.

|I drive passed this old school house every time I go skiing at East Portal. I finally stopped to capture it in a snowstorm. And of course, with the bright yellow, I had to present it in color.|
|Boulder Creek had some very interesting shapes after the new snow.|
|I tried this one in black and white, and it seems so much stronger in color. What do you think?|
I stopped on the Colorado University campus that was beautiful in the dumping snow.
The next day I went snowshoeing with my friend Greta up near Nederland. Boulder Canyon was closed because a semi had jackknifed, so we took Coal Creek Canyon. It was a great choice.

|The Brainard Lake zone has some fantastic skiing, but a long approach.|
