Saint George Weekend

•May 14, 2009 • 2 Comments

Sarah and I spent some time down in Saint George this weekend.  Here are a few shots from Sand Hollow Resort where we stayed and Angel’s Landing in Zion where we hiked on Sunday.  I definitely recomend that hike!

Last weekend was filled with hard work.  Starting Friday and ending Sunday around 8pm, Sarah and I sanded, stained and sealed a very very old and damaged floor.  Although the fruits of our labor is a beautiful restored floor, we were extremely exhausted.  On one of my breaks, I relaxed in the back yard in the spring sun and enjoyed one of our early season flowers, the crocus.  Apparently I wasn’t the only ones enjoying the flowers…

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. 

BUT…

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.

Enjoy!

British Virgin Islands

I think this post will give you a good idea of how busy I’ve been with non photography activities.  Here are some photos from December!  My family went down to the British Virgin Islands for a sailing trip and I planned on taking lots of photos.  Once I got down there, I found that I just had to relax.   So the camera mostly stayed hiden, but I did bring it out for a few shots.

Enjoy!
