My hands run super cold, not a great attribute for an outdoor aficionado and photographer. If we meet on a trail and it’s below 30° I’ll probably be wearing big down mittens - so when I forgot ANY gloves of any kind the evening taking this photo 10,000 feet up on Trail Ridge Road, my fingers were numb in minutes! I hope no one saw me trying to jam my worthless fingers against the shutter then shoving them down my pants to warm them up. Sorry kids.
I’ll be posting my favorite photos of the year of the next couple weeks. I hope you enjoy them!
Shot taken right after a turbulence that involved both the Italian and French side of Mont Blanc massif, revealing, at the end, the Aiguilles of Chamonix, literally encrusted in ice.
This is a detail of the world famous Aiguille du Dru, with its two summits (Grand Dru 3.754 m, and Petit Dru 3.733 m), with the ridge that goes up to the left, towards the Aiguille Verte. This area is less iced, but the warm alpenglow of the sunset made the clearing storm endlessly magical.
So I've opted for this photo, thought much in detail.

Thankful for my mountain home on International Mountain Day.
Whether in the Rockies, the Rosarito Mountains, or the Cascades #mountainlife
has got a hold on me.
Last light on Lafayette from Sunday's sunset. #alpenglow
It’s pretty simple; winter is my season. It always has been. It makes me come alive. I am most inspired and happy at this time of year. I love glowing pink sunrises and skiing powder. That is all.

This is Pumori. The paths leading up the dark hillside are the ever popular trail to Kala Patthar. Taken from Gorek Shep in the shadow of Everest and only few hours away from Everest Base Camp, this shot is almost exactly from 17K ft. **..........................................**
Perhaps it was the lack of oxygen getting to the brain, but the blue hour and corresponding alpenglow made the mountains appear as if they had extra depth and dimension. Almost as if they graciously were leaving their ancient place in the sky to come just a little closer to me. Very much appreciated!
This night was spectacular. Just a touch of high altitude cloud to catch some color as the sun continued to set. This was kind of a tough edit as the sky was actually that color. How do you make something so unbelievable appear realistic
Good morning from the stunning sand dunes! We made it through our first night camped out in the dunefield though temperatures dropped sharply as soon as the sun completely dove past the horizon. The eeriest thing throughout the night was the silence, hearing only the routine slowly building strong gusts of wind that barreled down from the top of the tall dune behind us, and crashed into the sides of our tent, throwing sand everywhere. When we woke up, all of us were covered in sand that lingered for days. Unzipping the vestibule, my early Saturday view was nothing short of mythical. Starving, we laid out a tarp and cooked breakfast, each of us with dehydrated pouches of scrambled eggs with ham and peppers, a breakfast skillet, and a filling spicy southwest hash with just enough of a kick to wake me up. Coffee followed and I’m convinced it was the best cup of backcountry coffee I’ve ever had. Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado. [Canon Rebel XT]

Just two cornballs that love a fire, the mountains and Sushi Sen 🙈🙊
A perfect pair ✨ The Minka and Valentina Necklaces
I'm holding onto you
My sun is fading
I'm falling into blue
Why don't you save me
My blood is running cold
So lift me up
And get me to higher ground
