The light this season has been really nice vivid sunsets, great cloud formations, Sunny more often than not, Wait a minute it’s Winter not Spring!  Colorado has been suffering through a strange winter season, attempting to subsist on awful ski conditions, man-made snow coating most of the runs and thousands of people skiing over it makes for a depressing season.  I’ll be the first to admit, I have a problem, the white powdery substance is the answer to my addiction I really want to go ski.


There are currently two schools of thought among the locals the first is hopeful sighting historic records as a magical tome that dictates relief after a long and patient wait.  “Just wait,” they say “The longer you wait the harder it will hit”
I’ll believe it when I see it.
The second school speaks of the farmers almanac, it is usually accurate stating that this is just a dry year.
Either way this makes dreams of shooting ski sessions really hard, there are few people willing to huck themselves off a rock with no snow to land on.  So it is landscapes and sunsets for the duration of the dry spell, remaining skeptical of the outcome.
