I got these shots on a recent trip to Yakima. Thanks Kristi and Riley!

Rule #… I don’t know it’s just a rule.
Always shave before going riding on a deep powder day.
This past December Kathryn and I were at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens viewing their Garden d’Lights with some friends and coworkers. It was dark, rainy, and I was trying to handhold my camera set to a slow shutter speed. Let’s just say I didn’t get many keepers. Then I saw this; not the best exposure, my lens had rain drops on it, and I was a bit shaky but the long exposure caught this apparitional shot of Khalil as he turned to walk forward while the shutter was still open.
The top of Gemini at Stevens Pass, WA on a beautiful sunny day. Click on the image below once to see a larger version and click again to zoom. I’m sorry if it takes to long to load, it was a large file.
And now back by popular demand, the shortest Project 365 ever. I’m sorry I missed one day, which turned into a weekend, which turned into more than a month. I’m gonna give this another try…
The following picture isn’t one that I took but one that I’ve been meaning to post for a while. It’s a shot of a couple of friends and I at Timberline Ski Resort at Mt.Hood, Oregon. This photo was taken with what seems like the first digital camera ever made. My iPhone can take better pictures. (Ok, maybe not my iPhone.) That doesn’t matter though because it was good enough to take a picture then, that I still have today, and can now post online. In the end, that’s why we take pictures; to share them with others, to remember the good times and the bad. Luckily this was a good day, not the best snow, only a few lifts were running, but we were on the snow very early in the season.
The guy on the right is my friend Jessie. He was the guy that started it all, he got us into this but because of him we’ve also gotten a lot of other people out on the snow. The most recent were the Pinkowski boys which will probably be teaching us a few things soon.
The guy on the left is my friend Riley. He pushes us all. I don’t know too many people that ride with broken bones and a torn meniscbcbwabzrsjnok; yes, that’s a medical term.
In the middle, that’s me.
I love this shot and hope to get an updated version sometime this year. I just hope we remember to take our goggles off…
