Silver King, Crystal Mountain Ski Resort

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

You’re looking at Silver King, which is located in the south backcountry of Crystal Mountain Ski Resort in Washington state. I took this from the Forest Queen lift, although I didn’t really want to admit that. Before I go any further, I’ve got to say it: it bugs the heck out of me that the very tops of those trees are cut off. It really really really annoys me. Sigh.

This turned out to be one of those rarest of days in Washington: a blue-sky powder day. (Shut up, Utah. We know.) Powder? Oh, we’ve got plenty of that. The storms never really end. But that’s the problem. It’s always snowing, so the sun never comes out. Oh well, that’s the cross we bear. I suppose I’ll find some way to deal with it.

I have run out of things to say today. Before I wrote this sentence, I was staring at the screen for a full 3 minutes trying to think of something, but I kept just thinking about what I wanted to eat for lunch today. Maybe it’s lunch time.

Notes: Canon PowerShot SD850 IS (Point and shoot). 1/320s, f/9.0, ISO 80.

    an amazing photo of a fantastic ski resort. I have the same Canon and love the functionality and features. When the photos are like the above it is worth the cost.
