New York Trip: Update

Got back from New York and wow what a trip.  It felt great going back and I am lucky the rain held off until the last two days of the trip.  Spending Spring break in New York was definitely the right choice.  I took more photos than I should have and I am just beginning to get through them.  Recently I have been expiration with black and white.  I have always enjoyed black and white but I have never really been able to get my pictures to look amazing in black and white.  But the more photos I edit in black and white the more I like them.  

The above is from a subway station down by Wall street.  And the one below is of a security guard who was pacing in front of this backlit wall in Rockefeller Plaza.

I spent the weekend at Mammoth Mountain with friends and family.  I brought my 6d along to capture some of the awesome views from trip.

When renting our equipment, I overheard the ski rental employees talk about how they hadn't rented out all the equipment yet this year.

This is the fist look we see of the mountain as we pull up.  Decent amount of snow for March.

Mammoth uses RFID in their ticket nows.  It helps to get people through the line and onto the life pretty quick.

It was perfect weather.  You can see a snowboarder about to drop in off the top in the above picture.

Fantastic views and this photo was taken a quarter of the way down the mountain.

There seemed to be more skiers than snowboarders on this trip.

Especially while driving the landscape is beautiful. 

Until next time Mammoth...
