Vail Mountain Closing Day Celebration (“4 at 4”) – April 23, 2017

Vail’s Closing Day 2015 Mountaintop Celebration & Pond Skimming Event

Another stellar season at Vail. Not the best year for snow, but the endless parade of activities, events and excitement took the Vail Valley to a new height. The 2015 World Skiing Championships put Vail and Beaver Creek on the international map — again. It was the third time Vail/B.C. hosted these races.

April 19, 2015 – Closing Day was chilly and snowy, so costumed characters were bundled up. But it did not subdue the spirit that only Closing Day can bring. Bittersweet fun and celebration as usual.

Winter Fun and Nature’s Beauty in the Central Colorado Rockies

It has been a busy winter so far for the ol’ Canon camera. The incomparable Colorado landscape, plentiful snow and animated clients and visitors provided wonderful visual imagery. I lost a few pounds and almost a few fingers (to frostbite) capturing these photos. But I hope you’ll agree it was worth the effort. Enjoy these selected snapshots of winter fun in the Colorado high country.

Most are from Vail Mountain and Summit County locations during Dec., Jan. & Feb.

As always, most of these images are available as high-resolution fine-art prints, or as electronic stock images for consumer and business publications or web site/Internet uses.
If you are Colorado local, I am also available for private photo shoots of any type.
Contact me for image prices, shoot fees, and terms of use.

__________________________________________________________

One of the most gratifying changes in my photographic evolution was a focus adjustment:  from almost all nature & landscape, and inanimate subject photography, to capturing the intricacies, nuances, and changing expressions of living, moving things. Namely, the human beings I meet along my way.

People.
Doing their things. Reacting to other people and things around them. Feeling and showing emotions. Growing up. Growing older, wiser, faster, weaker, stronger. Facing challenge. Changing course.

People.
Exhibiting their skills. Doing their work. Loving. Sharing. Caring. Playing. Sleeping. Moving. Touring. Eating. Laughing. Crying. Singing. Competing. Performing. Trying their best.
