Last weekend I was given the opportunity to go home and take photos for the Mount Washington Valley Ice Festival, it was an absolute blast. Shooting on a snowing winter day was definitely new territory for me, so it was a great learning experience. Things started to run a little bit more smoothly after I figured out how to keep my camera’s buttons from freezing and how to work in a relatively wet environment.
I met some interesting people during the festival, I’ve always enjoyed being in the presence of fellow climbers. It was surprising just how far so many people traveled just to ice climb in my little hometown. It makes me realize just how fortunate I am to have grown up in such a unique corner of the world.
I’m already stoked for next year!
