Diamond in the Rough

This winter has been a tough winter for photography.  To be honest, since the fall leaves dropped to the ground, my camera has mostly been collecting dust.  Winter house projects, longer days at work, and the desire to actually enjoy my activities rather than drag the camera along and feel that I’m obligated to take photos has taken a toll on the quantity of images I can take.  It is disappointing, but everyone has to choose priorities when they’re life gets to busy.  And making extra time for photography just didn’t make the cut this winter. 


Sometime you get out, feel inspired, and come back with something good.  I went out last weekend to do a backcountry ski tour with some friends and my wife Sarah.  Sarah has spent very little time in the backcountry, so I mostly skinned and skied with her, letting my friends move at their own pace.  Sarah wanted to sit out one lap, so I did one run with my friends on some mediocre snow (definitely not the best snow of the day).  I had brought my camera so I figured I would use it.
