White flakes of snow fell during the night. It was time to head into the mountains for some photography and sledding.
We’re rarely in snow and assumed most of our photos would take on a black and white effect. Not so.
It was true that the deep green of the trees contrasted with the snow, but clearly the bright winter outfits everyone else was wearing added an amazing, bright pop to our photos.
Now our photography took on a new dimension. Color. We combined that with practicing how to capture images of people as they whizzed by on their sleds and saucers.
We loved when we got vibrant color with a dazzling personality.
Colorful sledders lined up at the top of the slope, waiting for the signal to take off.
As sledders came down we observed their techniques and their thrilling descents.
Some parents showed flair and were as happy – and as brightly clothed – as their children.
Color ruled the mountain. The white snow and deep green pines were the perfect backdrop. It’s a joy to discover unexpected surprises…and even better when we have cameras in hand.
