The Mt Baker Ski Area, that is. For me, this is the official start of winter- the first day on the slopes. After getting re-acquainted with the muscle groups that don't get used during the summer months, I broke out the camera. Although I didn't set out to do this, my best photos turned out to be more in the abstract or intimate landscape category. #1 Mount Shuksan with weather drifting through... #2 I was intrigued by an emerging sun and the Shuksan Arm Ridgeline.. #3 Icicles along the lodge's roof... #4 Another Icicle shot.. #5 Post sunset HDR shot of the North Fork Nooksack River #6 Zoomed view of the river current and snowclad rocks Thanks for looking!
