How to Shred the Gnar

There’s a first for everything, and as a primary water sports enthusiast, I haven’t introduced my kids to the art of snow sports yet, until the 1st of 2023! They have begun their journey Shreddin’ the Gnar. But first a look at the hills shrouded in snow just south of Chelan, WA. This edition is available for purchase up to 50in x 19in showcased over a beautiful wall space. Contact for details.

We spent two days at Echo Valley just north of Lake Chelan. With only 3 toe ropes and a minimal field of Jerry’s, their experience was beautiful. After an 1.5hr ski lesson from a young shredder himself, they were hooked.

A Day For Ice

For one day in the Pacific Northwest, everything frozen.

Looking at my Tacoma was a detailed spectacle.

From the truck, I grabbed a sheet of black foam core and wandered around the garden.

Placing the black background behind the frozen elements helped isolate the subjects and make the ice pop.

Then with an old camera, and an even older lens, I returned to the truck to photograph the macro world of ice encapsulating the Toyota Tacoma.

They each look like a study of ice, or a picture of a frozen planet far out in the galaxy.
