Double check on the date I was last there, it was 1994! Got some old slide scans saved so here are a few with some old school hardware. First, our fabulous instructor, Gabrielle: Me on the old 205cm Volkl P9 Slaloms: Mandatory stretching before our lesson: One of my favorites at the bridge over the Gorge outside town: And finally, I guess we did get some snow, one morning anyhow:
I haven't been to Taos in ~15 years. Last time we were there in late Jan. and took the ski week lesson program which was really great. We loved the mountain, but it hadn't snowed in about 3 weeks and cover was a bit thin, but we got a hell of a lot of vertical! Finally going back again this year, but we're taking Tony's advice and hitting it late Feb., 2/24 & 2/25 to be exact. So really looking forward to it! Just 2 days at TSV though since we decided to do a big...
Splitter, those are fantastic shots!! Particularly the 2nd one - the lighting is just perfect. I have to try some night photography myself one of these days, especially after seeing this.
How about a couple concert photos. Walked along "The High Line" in NYC last weekend and took a few shots with my new OLY E-M1. Walked about 130 blocks total ending up at the beautiful and legendary Beacon Theater to see the amazing Tedeschi Trucks Band. First two shots using the 12-40 Oly Pro lens. Then from the last row in the Lower Balcony, some shots of TTB using a relatively small 90mm Zeiss Contax manual focus lens. (Oh and BTW, I'm sort of in love with Susan...
Been a bit absent around here lately, but still alive. Tried a little bass fishin' yesterday at one of my favorite places in the world and a spot you rarely see photos from around here. I did get skunked, but rewarded myself afterward with some of the best baked clams ever and and a garlic & onion encrusted Tilefish sandwich at legendary Gosman's Dock! Me, prior to getting skunked. However, there was the head of a 30lb. filleted bass right behind my wife when she...
O.P., and the rest of you should watch this through till the very end and you will understand why Stowe was a good choice.
I think you mean Resolution by what you're calling range. Either way, yes, Resolution is very good as well as dynamic range in your video.
^^^ That right there is a pretty damn good list!!! Just the fact that you've got Dynamite in there in about the right spot means you know your shiite. Nice job! p.s. not sure about Outer Limits though, especially since they often groom half of it flat now. Although I haven't skied them, the marked gladed runs either side of that I would think have to be more difficult as well as Devil's Fiddle due to some random gnar absent on O.L. I also recall the Julio glade area...
Yikes - I guess you never made it to Bear Mountain, or the Glades chair, or Superstar, or the back of Skye Peak. The only trails I'd say often seem to have flat light are between Lower Cascade and Double Dipper, and for some reason, Needles Eye - but who cares if the light is flat there as long as you still have Anna's Empanadas at the base there. Those little babies alone make me want to head for K-Mart on a cold day.
Damn! That's nice!! Didn't have time to sit through the whole thing at work, but will when I get home. Stunning scenery definitely helps here too. But I agree, the quality is excellent. Now I understand what you meant by "range." Yes, that Go Pro video does have excellent dynamic range. Although the Contour + also has 1080p, I can't upload to Vimeo above 720p without a paid account. As far as the chest mount goes, better for the wearer, I guess, but I still find it...
