Snowy Sneak Peek

I live in a part of the country where, if you really wanted to, you could surf and ski in the same day. I sometimes even see car commercials showing some young daredevils doing both activities in one day. I don't identify with them. I've skied once in my life and I'm terrified of being in the ocean above my knees. Anyways, on Wednesday, Mum and I drove three hours to get to the snow, took pictures for two and a half hours, and drove back home another three hours.

Why would we do that? The guy at Starbucks couldn't fathom that we would travel that far to take pictures for a book. But we did. And the pictures are awesome. Even the outtakes. The image above was captured after I threw some snow in the air to make the picture look more magical. I thought that if you throw snowballs into the air, they might break up and come back down looking like a snow flurry. What I actually learned is that when you throw snowballs into the air, that is how they come back down.
The picture was taken with my camera set to rapid shoot. So in the future, when the book is out, I think I'll have to make a full gif of what lead to this shot. Until then, this is just another sneak peek.

Heehee, that picture doesn't look quite magical but it does tell a story! I don't understand skiing, it looks like a deathtrap to me, you'll find me hanging out in the ski lodge with hot chocolate. Glad to hear there is more progress on the book!

That is hilarious! I'm not a skier, either, though everyone in my office is and was trying to get me to go. I'm so uncoordinated and am fairly afraid of heights, I feel like it would be bad news all around!

Oh, I love it! Such a funny shot. You should definitely include some outtakes in your book.
