April 2017 Image of the Month Contest

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

This month we actually have multiple prizes thanks to Mariener, makers of affordable high quality Ski Goggles and Sunglasses. The winner will receive their pick of goggles and sunglasses, and the second and third place vote getters will get to pick a pair of sun glasses. The goggle options can be found here, and sun glasses here. Also they're working on developing some Matte lenses as well, which you can find a discussion about on EpicSki about here. Don't forget that the images don't have to be skiing related, so don't worry if your season is winding down, still feel free to submit your favorite shots. 

 

Rules:

 

  1. The image must be your own and taken during the month of April 2017. 
  2. Please submit one image per post; you can submit up to three images/posts per month. 
  3. Please put a brief description of the image (where, what, when, or any other interesting details). 
  4. Voters can vote for as many images as they like. 
  5. Images do not need to be SOTC (straight out of the camera), standard editing and even HDR shots are welcome and encouraged. However please do not submit composite shots** in the contest thread as the idea is the best image you can capture rather than the best picture that you can create in Photoshop. 

 

Also not a rule, but an explanation. Please vote for the images you like! At the bottom of the post there is a little thumbs up button, please click it! 

 

**composite shots meaning using two unrelated and completely different shots to make one image, ie putting the sky from one shot with the foreground of a shot from a different location. 

 

Official Terms and Conditions for the Contest can be found here.

I guess I'll get this month started. Took this picture at the Spotted Wolf Canyon Viewing Area in Utah on my way from Vegas to Colorado.

I know it's not ski related but my ski season is pretty much over because I'm out of state for a while so here is Busch stadium, home of the St Louis Cardinals. I took this on April 7th

The Mariners home opener is today and I'll be there, but it is hard to find beauty in a 1-6 start. So I will not post a photo of that. Instead, one from the ferry on the way to Orcas Island on Friday, with a storm rolling in.

Maple Sugaring Season in Vermont. The moonlight, sparks from the fire, and a nice wispy cloud came together nicely for this shot.

 

post #17 of 38

I almost missed this alpenglow event. It had been cloudy all day and right at the end of the day the clouds pulled back from the summit of Burke Mtn revealing nicely frost trees. Then the sun broke through on the far western horizon, lighting the mountain in the deepest pink alpenglow that I have ever seen.

Yes they are. I've lived at roughly the same spot for over thirty years and I've seen the mountain lit up in various shades of color from orange to pink. However, this was the most intense deep pink combined with purples and blues that I have EVER seen. The event only lasted for a minute or two. I'm glad I always have my camera ready! :)

 

Edit to add:

Most people in the area around me posted a lot of photos on Facebook of the intense sunset on the western horizon that evening. However, the primary view from my house looks east and I concentrated on the opposite view that evening.

 

The view west that evening (not part of the contest).

How well you are able to ski is related to how hard you are willing to fall.

@crudmaster - you need to separate those into individual posts so they can be voted on. If you need help, let me know.
