Meeker and Longs, yet again.

I wanted Dreamweaver badly today, but as the below image shows…it wasn’t in.

Dreamweaver is the right hand snow line, but it was not enough for a solo

The wind also aided my decision to take it easy.

The wind was alive up there, looking along Lady Washington's South Face.

Despite this, I found an excellent stash of ice below Chasm Lake.  I monkeyed around for a bit with a little ice climbing and a little dry tooling.  Good times!

The ice flows from Chasm Lake above. This was taken after my play time.

Along the base of the ice flows.

Naturally, I was alone and without a tripod.  Therefore, I have no really cool self portraits of my climbing.

A Black and White with Color

First attempt at this Layer Mask business....not sure if I'm a fan yet.

Here’s what I did with Photoshop, the background image is the standard photo, then next layer is the BW. I colored the BW layer with Black on the bottom half (the color section) this brought through the colors of the original background….well, see if I get better.

Darkerened the blue, lightened the red and yellow to add to the contrast depth. Shot with the Canon 30D 50mm ISO 800 1/200 sec f/22

A brutal wind

Went for a ski near Longs Peak, however the blowing snow changed my perspective.

I came back into town and did some bouldering in the sun…..
