Night Skiing

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 1 February 2013 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Here in the great white north (and probably everywhere else in the world), when winter comes we abandon nightswimming in favor of night skiing. It's how we roll. This is the first of three I took when I went up this week. Mostly it's an excuse to share this wicked you tube find of Chris Martin and Michael Stype performing REM's tune.

Hipstamatic 261 1/17 second F/2.4 ISO 400 5 mm

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

Basile Pesso from Paris, France

Good though saturated Hipsta shot with a great REM song ( I dreamt about REM last night !!)

1 Feb 2013 8:56am

@Basile Pesso: Really? funny to dream about a band called REM... and then of all times. Yes, the shot is saturated, I did not pp so I guess it was just how the lens handles in low light.

I love the sort of night goggles look that you've produced here, (and a great rendition of night swimming.)

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Night skiing sounds scary to me!

1 Feb 2013 5:13pm

@CElliottUK: Really? I always had you pegged as a relatively fearless chap ;-p It's not usually this foggy... and on a clear night you can actually see the city lights from this view!

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

Love the color and light - it gives it a strange atmosphere.

1 Feb 2013 5:56pm

@Ruthiebear: Thanks... night skiing in the fog is definitely something else :-)
