Ouray Ice Fest 2015

I’m sorry for my absence from this page, it has been way too long since I posted any photos on here! I’ve been posting on Instagram quite a bit, and my Facebook page, too. I’m going to try to post highlights on here every time I do a Facebook post, then I’ll link to the full photo set that I put on my Facebook page.
On that note, here are a few from my latest photo event, the 2015 Ouray Ice Climbing Festival!
Enjoy!

XGames 2014 Preview

This was the big weekend. This was XGames weekend in lovely Aspen, Colorado. Living just 3 hours away from Buttermilk Mountain, I have the luxury of scooting over to XGames for a while, even if I have to be back in town to take my kid to school in the morning. This year I did just that for Thursday night’s events, then I got to go back for the rest of the weekend with my hubby. It was a great time, even if we didn’t stay for the night events on Saturday or Sunday… 🙂 It was cold and I was lacking in cool-guy wool socks. I will have to invest in some this year. I am in the process of processing my images, so here are a few to whet your appetite.

Ice Climbing for a Minute

I made it down to Ouray this weekend for a bit of the annual Ice Fest. When my oldest munchkin and I arrived Sunday morning for the speed competition the weather could not have been better, save a couple of upward degrees. It was overcast, calm, and only a little chilly. Perfect weather for ice climbing, and more importantly, perfect for pictures. We walked across the bridge over the canyon and all the way around the top of the climbing area taking a few photos and bidding good morning to some climbers on our way around.

We got to the parking lot at the far end and turned around just before the wind hit and the snow blew in. It was instant. I’m not even joking. Nothing, a few flurries, then Bam! Two-inch-an-hour blizzard! We left just before the competition started due to my lack of weather protection for my camera and also the munchkin getting quite unhappy about the violently blowing snow in her face.

Needless to say, I didn’t get terribly many pictures this year at Ice Fest. However, I got a few good shots, and as a bonus I got to try out my new monopod (It’s a Sunpak, just a $25 cheapy stick, but I absolutely love it!).

First Winter Storm

A couple of weeks ago we had the first major storm of the year here in Montrose. We got about a foot of snow, depending on where you were. It was gorgeous! I was moving that day, so I didn’t get a ton of pictures taken. I did get several that I really like. Now that we are all moved I should hopefully be getting back on top of this blogging thing. I have more pictures from the past couple of months that I need to post on here, so those should be coming up soon.

For now, here’s the storm! Enjoy!

Owl Creek Pass

A couple of weeks ago (I’ve been terribly slow about uploading these) I went for a little drive with the family. We went to a place that I had been wanting to get to pretty much since we moved to Colorado – Owl Creek Pass and Silver Jack Reservoir. It’s not very far from town, I had just never made it there. I’m very glad that we went! It was a great day out and about, the weather was perfect, the pictures I got were great, And it was an adventure!

Winter Wonderfulness

Ah, winter! That lovely time of year when most of us here in Colorado sit inside and wait for warm weather to come around again. However, it is a wonderful time for pictures. I’m especially liking black and white at the moment – so here you go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Whenever I think of renewal my first thought is of flowers – especially forsythia. And of snow in the spring.
