I swung through Silverton, Colorado and the Bonnie Belle Cabin last week to sip on some whiskey, chop some fire wood, stain the deck and generally clean up and prepare for winter, which is not too far away. It actually has already snowed up there since I left. Preparations are being made to install our new solar system which has been purchased and just needs to be installed. Hopefully we can get it done before the snow really starts to fly. Right now it is looking good though as we are having a great Indian summer here in Colorado with temps into the 70's during the day, and that trend looks to continue. Book your trip today for this winter. Spaces are filling up quickly!!
I got a call a few days ago from fellow Colorado/Florida Photographer Chris Garrison, and he asked if I was willing to do a shoot that he wasn't going to be able to make it back for. I happily accepted the work, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. So thank you Chris, as well as Tina and Jessi from Katrina Active Wear, as well as our two models, Molly and Phoenix. Katrina active wear recently relocated from Arizona to Silverthorne, Colorado, and its always nice to get some local work here in Colorado! Check them out here.
This is an outtake, but I really liked it. What you are seeing is 3 of 4 flashes firing. My main or fill flash wasn't done recycling when I fired this shot, and you are seeing my two side highlighs as well as a very subtle strobe on the backdrop. Thanks again to everyone involved!
DC and I headed out yesterday afternoon to hit up the Ten Mile Traverse, or at least the shorter but more fun route. A short climb up Ten Mile Peak followed by some pretty intense scrambling over to peak 3 and then some really fun scrambling up to Peak 4, and then back down to the car. We made it out about 15 minutes before we would have needed our headlamps. All in all we couldn't have asked for a better day to be out on the peaks and ridges of Summit County.
