Mountains of Whistler

You should've seen me on this day... My third day of skiing I decided to haul my camera gear up on the mountain.  I did this for my Inuksuk shot as well, but I forgot to mention it in that post.  Anyway, skiing is hard enough when you don't do it on a regular basis, but skiing while hauling a backpack full of camera gear is another thing entirely.  Ahh, the things we do to get THE shot. 

This is one of the many views from the top of either Whistler or Blackcomb Mountains.  I think it's Whistler Mountain that I took this one from.  Either way, this is a shot of the mountains behind it.  It's a great place to shoot from because I think the whole time we were there, there were always clouds above and below the mountains... for the most part.  Have to watch out for the wind though.. pretty breezy up there!  Some spectacular vistas for sure, though. 

Here I tried to channel my inner Ansel Adams and converted this one to black and white.  The final shot was pretty monochrome to begin with due to the gray skies and the white snow.  I don't think it comes close to what Mr. Adams might get, but I like it nonetheless.  What do you think?
