Got out skiing yesterday, and the day before, snowshoeing before that, skiing later today...

We have been taking advantage of this storm, the powder above 8000' is pure heaven. 2 - 3 feet of powder, depending on what mountain your playing on.

Yep. I need to find some clothes appropriate for non-California weather, though. You know, so I don't die.

Thank you! The pics tell the story! We had a great wedding day

I'm spending a lot more time taking pictures, just started to play with HDR techniques, its really fun. I think its a better way to capture story telling pictures:





(still watermarked, need to pay for the software...)

HDR images look really interesting, but I haven't looked into the process much. As I understand it, though, it's something you can do in a photo editor like Photoshop. Of course, if you don't have Photoshop, the software in question is probably cheaper.

*nod* I have been playing around in Photoshop and creating HDR images from a single RAW. The process isn't too bad, but it takes much longer then using the Photomatix software. I think I like the Photomatix results better as well.

If I had more RAW photos to work with, I would spend more time playing with photoshop, but 99% of my photos were recorded as high quality JPG's.
