Skiing, sunsets and … a beaver?

I headed to the preview of the U.S. Ski Team Speed Training Center with the goal of getting at least one good ski action shot and I was pretty satisfied when I opened this image on the monitor. I worked hard to get this one, looking for some good half light and a background that would add some interest. This is former U.S. Ski Team Racer Doug Lewis.

FRISCO — Just a few shots from around the county from the past couple of days … Shooting the speed course at Copper was fun change-of-pace, and now I feel ready to go out and get some more good action shots when the rest of the team starts training next week. I was also amazed by the wetlands sunset capture with the iPhone camera. I shot the same scene with the Nikon D80, and it didn’t look nearly as crisp.

An amazing and short sunset Wednesday, captured with the iPhone camera. This shot is available in the online Summit Voice gallery.
