A few more shots from my snow shoe hike in Colorado, these with camera movement. My goal with this technique is to show the subject differently, recognizable but with movement, while also having some sharpness in the image. The eye will always try and find something it can focus on, so I try and have that. Although a couple of these really don’t have any sharp spots. I love looking at an abstract take on nature. What do you think?

A trip to ski out west always has the potential for amazing images. If only I could ski with my good camera, that would be multitasking! I did get some interesting shots of the mountains in the distance with my iPhone. Maybe I’ll share those in another post. And maybe I’ll get a camera I can ski with because the views from the top of the mountain are just incredible! We had great weather and conditions, so much that I was way too tired to go out on my own with my camera ¬†before or after skiing all day.
I decided to go snow shoeing for some variety and as an opportunity for some photos. I also dragged two friends along with me on my adventure. We headed out with a guide near a small town called Minturn, Colorado. The hike on snow shoes at 8000 feet put us all to the test. Once we got our breathing mastered, we really enjoyed our outing. These images are from that hike. I miss the gorgeous scenery out there and look forward to returning!
