King of the moguls

king-of-the-moguls

Another shot from the slopes during February’s trip to Telluride, Colorado. Riding up the Plunge lift one afternoon, the light was creating some striking definition of the Mammoth mogul run. I didn’t have my iPhone out so I was hoping that by the time I skied down and rode back up, the light hadn’t shifted too much. Luckily, the light was perfect and as I was shooting, a lone skier was coming down, making for a near-perfect composition. I hadn’t initially thought of it as a black and white shot but as I played around with it in PhotoToaster, the deep troughs of the bumps made it a no-brainer. Definitely one of my all-time favourite shots.

Taken in Telluride, Colorado (top of lift 5, Polar Queen, for ski bums). I was struck by the symmetry of rusted tin roof, the snow and the fir trees. Taken with iPhone 6 and messed with PhotoToaster and Snapseed to bring out some drama in the sky.

Touch of the old west

To say Roudy is a character is an understatement. He’s been running trailrides out of Telluride, Colorado, for almost 40 years and looks like he stepped right out the Old West, which is why I took these Hipstamatic shots using the Tinto 1884 lens and C-Tye Plate film to give them a worn, vintage feel (apart from the ranch shot which was shot with Doris lens and Sussex film).

If you’re ever out west, I can highly recommend a ride with the dude! Check him out here.

Taken in Telluride

One of my favourite places on earth is Telluride, Colorado, where I ski most winters. This is a selection of images shot on my iPhone 5 native app and Hipstamatic during my most recent trip in February 2013 and edited with a variety of apps, including PhotoToaster, FX PhotoStudio and PhotoForge.
