Finally, on our last evening in Whistler, there were rays of light over the distant horizon as the sun started to dip. This was the view from our bedroom, and the only time the dSLR got used on the whole trip. Better late than never.
We can never take the weather for granted, you have to accept what nature gives you and make the best of it. I’m reminded of the quote, variously attributed although I think John Ruskin is one of the likeliest originators, that ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing’. Substitute ‘Photography’ for the word clothing and it rings true. When the weather’s foul, we have to cast aside our usual thinking and planning, and get ourselves out of our comfort zones and really think: where’s the picture now? What is Plan B? There always needs to be a Plan B.
In our ten days in Whistler I think I took more images in Whistler village than I did on the ski slopes. One or two of those coming up next week. Stay tuned.
