I promised a friend that I would post a few close shots of aspens. Well, here’s what I captured the other day. One of these is also a pan, but closer than the over all pans I posted earlier. This was my first time up to Powder Mountain. Powder as it’s known by locals is not one of the most popular ski areas, but if your into lots of interesting terrain it’s one of the better resorts. I took these shots hand held and as a result there were a lot that didn’t turn out. Lesson learned – better to set up the tripod than to get home and not have much. Because these shoots where done near sunset there really wasn’t very much light and even though I had the ISO turned up 400, the shutter was 1/30th at of a second at f8 – usually not a problem, except that is was cold at 8,100 ft with no sun.
