Jan 8: Sunrise Teaser

The snow and weather finally aligned for us: 5" fresh and clear skies.
With our practice sessions complete, it was time for the real deal.

2 still cameras, 1 video camera, 2 tripods, 2 shutter releases, 2 strobes, 2 light stands, 1 battery, pocket wizards,..... head lamps, hand warmers, puffy coats,..... shovels, beacons, probes,..... food, water, candy,.....

Each pack weighed ~40lbs. Even with 4 strong young athletes, it was a challenging haul. (The downhill portion was also challenging, and comical at times.)

Big big thanks to Matt, Nate, and Vanessa. Each pulled their weight, and a lot of mine, and completed their tasks with skill and efficiency.

I am preparing a video to detail the project, but I want to share a few early images to whet your appetite.

Vanessa belays Nate, as the sunrise belays the moon.

Heber City glows in the distance. Matt and I work to set up the lights. Nate and Vanessa stomp out the take-off.

More to come, after video edits.
