We had the chance to go snowshoeing in the back country this last week, so I thought I would try to channel my inner Ansel Adams. Just so you know - my camera.... does not have an "Ansel" setting on it *sigh*
Check out these old Internationals - both the tractor and the truck!!
Remember Ansel's Half Dome Shot?
Well - this isn't it.
But it is the biggest rock I found on our excursion.
Wrangler Man says if you study it real close - you can see a goat head.
So maybe it is Goat Dome?
I was trying to find the contrast between the light and the dark.
I love the way the sun shone through the trees.
And just so you know - it was 14 degrees.
But with all the work trying to keep up with my ultra fast oldest child
I was sweating!
Here is the same shot ( sort of) in color.
And because I am not like Ansel, and could carry more *plates*, I could take 4 batrillion pictures
He only carried 12 plates to make his photos of Half Dome.
And they were glass
I like technology!
Sadly - there is a lot of beetle kill in the forest.
We decided that these were probably beetle kill trees
that had been blown over by wind.
And the whole crew!
We had a blast and saw some gorgeous country.
but for the guys it was a 4 cheeseburger night.
They burned a lot of calories.
I did too - but I opted for a Cashew Caramel Bear from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
You can't say I don't know how to spend my calorie deficit wisely!!
Hope you enjoyed the photos.
