Snowfall in Ketchum

This is a shot of the snowfall in downtown Ketchum, Idaho, also known as Sun Valley.  Between ski days, Eileen and I walked around town for a little shopping and a little dining.  The snow was just dumping and I think we got somewhere around a foot during this snowfall.

Regarding the buildings seen here, the "Pioneer Saloon" on the left has great prime rib and steaks and the building with the green first floor and brick second floor is called "Enoteca".  It is an Italian food restaurant and the locals love it.  We ate there and let's just say we didn't quite agree with the locals.

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Closed

It's the last full day of our trip and it was supposed to be spent with me skiing and Eileen enjoying a nice day in our accommodations.  However, the weather had different ideas.  It's now raining down in the valley where we are staying and apparently raining/snowing so hard up on the mountain that the resort had to shut down.  Yup, no skiing for me today at all.  I guess it's the first time this has happened in a long time, if ever. So now Eileen has to put up with me for a whole day! :-) Haha!

I also thought, why not put out another picture or two?  So here you go.  The first is a companion to my last post from outside the Lookout Day Lodge.  If you read my last post, I talked about how windy it was up there but you couldn't get that from the pic of the lodge.  With this shot, you get more of a sense of the wind; I took it at the same time as the last.  You can see the banner blowing, snow blowing by the trees on the right and there's even someone bending over in front of the little building there doing something. My guess is kissing his ass goodbye, but who really knows?

The second shot is of a guy who was doing a little fishing in the stream by the sports store and lodge where I picked up my tickets and skis.  I was done for the day and walking home when I spotted this guy.  I didn't ask him how he was doing because I wasn't sure if that would scare off his potential catch.  But it made for a nice scene, yes?

I hope you enjoy the photos and thanks for dropping by.

Lookout Day Lodge

We are really enjoying our trip to Sun Valley, ID.  The snow is incredible!  It's basically been snowing non-stop since we got here on Saturday.  Really makes for great skiing.  I traded my skis out today for skis more suited to powder.  We'll see how that goes tomorrow.

This shot here is of the restaurant at the top of the mountain called Lookout Day Lodge.  You can see how much snow is up there as the restaurant is half-buried in it.  You have to walk down just to get through the doorway.  I stopped in there towards the end of the day yesterday for a beverage.  As I was sitting there, a gentleman from the resort staff said that the lift to get there had to be closed because of high winds.  It was crazy windy up there!  I wondered if they would do that because that lift seemed to always stop just before I got to the top and it was just whipping up there.  It was really hard to see where you were going.  You can't really get a sense of the wind int his shot, but trust me, it was!

Usually when I go skiing I will take the Fuji X-T1 up with me to take some pictures.  However, with this snow, I'm not sure I want to do this.  So, I'm trying the iPhone out and editing with Lightroom Mobile and all of that.  This is the first result.

I hope enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Lake Tahoe Sunset

This is a photo I took from our trip to Lake Tahoe last year.  I think I took on our last night.  It's a combination of two photos and I used Jimmy McIntyre's Raya Pro to combine them.  I'm still on the fence as to whether I like it or not.  When I haven't seen it for an extended period of time and then come back to it, I kind of like it.  But, then the more I look at it, the more I don't.  There's something about it that don't like and I cannot put my finger on it.  What do you think?

I you hope enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.
