I took this photo 5 years ago on one of the short hikes off Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. We are planning to get fairly early tomorrow and escape another hot day here in Boulder by going to the same place, while it still have plenty of snow.
About to hit that ice on down hill slope. Hard smooth ice, it was covered by a few inches of fresh snow and descending it was easy and fun. Ascending it, well, it was not visible on my way up to the Black Lake and I ended up doing some body snow surfing, even in snowshoes. Fun times in the mountains! Can’t wait for another adventure and I’m about to have a toast 🥂 for many more to come!
East Coast is super wet right now, it seems like it is raining everywhere and it is really raining, I mean, like pouring down. I happen to be in Times Square during this big wetness period, got literally soaked wet all the way through my underwear, my shorts were drenched in water, I ended up walking right straight through deep pools of water in my running shoes, all to try take some photos of somewhat deserted Times Square. My first attempt with 14-24 didn’t go too well as it got immediately wet and I had to go back to hotel and change it to 24-70 as it has much longer lens hood and can keep external water from getting on the glass, well at least for some time. I think I got couple shots that were decent, here is one of them.
