Keeping going there’s still more!

Powderface Mountain

The first solo I ever did was to this same spot in the winter of 2017. The wind that night ended up being so strong that it was moving the tent with me inside of it! Being my first solo, I was extremely underprepared and ended up having to move camp late at night and hike a kilometer through the snow to an area that was less windy.

This adventure is my come back story! I wanted to come back to this location and prove to myself that I could stick it out. With a little better gear and more knowledge, I had a very successful trip.

The main reasons I like this image is the lack of color, sounds weird but let me explain. The soft blue that makes up the mountain peaks and the top of the sky creates this calming feeling and the first of the sunrise coloring create amazing contrast between the mountains and sky making for a very peaceful image.

It’s always nice when you get to the top of a mountain and find a bench with a great view. This was one of the first times I’ve tried using shallow depth of field for a landscape shot and I have to say I quite like the effect.

The foothills generally don’t excite me too much, but with the spring colors and the sun setting behind the front range of the Rockies, it makes for a cool transition from rolling hills to mountain peaks.
