Share the Season – Whata Week!

The past few days has seen some GREAT images posted to the Share the Season photo contest (Grand prize Brand New Nikon D600). The international scope of the contest is just so cool! Here’s some highlights and their story. Enjoy! My friend and I wanted to go out to Black Butte Ranch here in Central Oregon and ride the Christmas Wagon all the while photographing the spectacular wintry scenery and probably capturing that one shot that makes it all worthwhile.

Being so cold, the weight caused this cool little snow storm which for us photographers, was a great shot. So we stopped and shot a couple of frames. After making the couple of shots, we got back in the truck and merged will all the skier traffic heading to our town and proceeded north. I’d left the D4 / 24-70 out because, well, you just never...
