Hectic times in Portland. Plenty of pics in the camera!
Well Ana is finally here, and I have the rest of the week off, so some trips are coming ahead.
We took a nice walk around Pittock Mansion area but the clouds were hiding the mountains, so basically the attraction of the view was gone. Anyways it was extremely peaceful (no one around). I used the 50mm fix that it's been a little bit abandoned. I like the the lens but if canon would release a fix cheap lens between 20 and 30mm that would be so awesome. The 50mm closes so much that there's not much you can fit in the picture.
Waterfalls tomorrow and more pictures coming soon!
As Tuesday was the last sunny warm day (it's been raining a little here and there since then) I decided to get the day off and work on Friday instead. It turned out being another fantastic day up there. They finally opened Palmer chairlift, after weeks of promises from the direction of the ski resort. I thought I would be the first one going up in the chairlift but somebody got faster than me, so I guess I am the second skier using Palmer this season, haha! After the ski journey I decided to check Trillium Lake. Apparently they opened the road a couple of days earlier. The lake was frozen 3 weeks ago but by the time I went it was nice enough to swim, and it felt great. Actually I jumped to the water twice. One of those moments when you can't believe how fortunate you are.
Now working straight until next Wednesday, when Anita is arriving. That way I'll be able to get the rest of next week off. And anyways it's raining in Mt Hood.
I'm not very fan of selfies but I wanted to take a pic of my tracks, creating 8s. Second time I tried to create them, so much fun!
After trying to arrange a photo session with Marta since December last Sunday all the planets finally aligned. It was a fun day hitting groomers and some jumps (not me haha). We also met a girl called Naima who rips crazy well, very talented.
I guess there'll be at least one more photo session before the end of the season, let's pray for some sun!
