Weather can be fickle, mosquitoes atrocious, but time in the mountains can still be cherished. As mentioned in a previous post I’ve made a personal goal to push my work outside of the snow world. I feel winter is where my focus and strengths have always been, but as this is only a small portion of the year I’m striving to expand my skills.
Camping has been something I’ve done my entire life, but the frequency will come and go as life gets busy. With this push to shoot more, I’ve been motivated to get back out and spend more time in a tent allow me more time to explore alpine zones, and the ease of being in the mountains for the peak times of light, sunrise and sunset.
Friend and fellow photographer Josh Dooley and I went out for an evening in a zone near Pemberton, British Columbia. With a forecast of heavy rain the following day we weren’t necessarily surprised by a lack of a dramatic sunset. We enjoyed the mountain views, got concerned by an approaching thunderstorm that ultimately passed us by, and swore a bit to much at the onslaught of mosquitoes, but overall had a wonderful time.
