Cover from the December Vermont Sports, a local outdoorsy publication. The color is a bit off, looks like something got messed up in pre-press which is always kind of a bummer. I like this shot though, makes me psyched for the coming winter. Not many people shoot nordic skiing as there’s not a ton of $ in the market, and most of ther nordic shots I see look really staged and cheesy. Say no to that. So I try to keep it authentic and fast, and that seems to work well, utilizing the scenic stuff but not relying on it too much. The skiing is enough.
Speaking of winter, it was crazy warm yesterday, like 65 degrees. I went on my ride in shorts and short sleeve jersey w/arm warmers, last time I’ll do that until next May I imagine. Like 10 minutes after I got back the heavens opened as a front rolled through, pouring rain w/35 mph winds. So when we wokoe up this morning it was only 17 degrees, winter’s back in the house.
