This is part 20 in a series of blog posts that I am dedication to my favorite photos of 2009. Today’s inductee and now a resident in my “Ice and Snow” photo album is “Painting Tracks“. I took this photo December 27th, 2009 at 5:37 PM with my dying Canon SD 1000.
Painting Tracks. Yea, that is a good title. The bronze glow of the setting sun was beautiful and I hastily shot these photos as I was getting very anxious to get to Blue Point. I was anxious because my turn around time had expired about a thousand feet and two miles back. Oh well, I am glad I extended my adventure because this photo is one of my favorites.
In the coming days you will see this very same scene but in landscape mode. This one is in Portrait so i am guessing I wanted to portray my anxiety of plunging through the snow to get to a pint of turn around knowing it would be dark soon. I soon realized after this that this scene was of tranquility so I shot it in landscape.
These scenes are a thing of memory know as last night I did a 2 hour training ride and finished with the sun, still in the sky, in my face. It felt so good. The beauty of winter shown here is giving way to spring and summer which will bring wildflowers instead of painted tracks.
