This particular set comes from yesterday, when my buddy Max and I went to Park City, Utah, to breathe smog-free air for a few hours and to take photos. Max has much better camera equipment than I do, so you might want to drop by his post as well for awesome ski shots, but here are a few pics I chose as possible writing inspirations.
As I didn't have Max's telephoto lens, my snowboarders look like ants flipping over the edges of this half-pipe. I did notice, however, that no one coming down this pipe during the entire time we took shots (about 30 minutes) was over age 15; most of them were boys of about 10 or 11. (I suspect that once one gains the maturity to realize how easily one's neck could snap, then one stops doing this sort of thing.) Most of these kids were pretty good. One boy impressed a couple of older ones standing near us by doing a double flip.
