On Assignment: Fulton County, New York-Day Four

"Little Skier" by Wes Aldridge

After wasting away one-and-a-half hours of my life snow shoeing deep into a thick forest to find cross country skiers and freezing my self nearly to death, here is my shot. I went back to the ski resort I was photographing and sat by the heater with the other bitter cold battered winter wonderland adventurers. I was exhausted, because snow shoeing is tedious work, and laid out on a couch with my head tilted back. I looked up and saw this tiny plastic skier hanging from a mobile in the lodge. I opened to f/2.8 and knocked the shutter down to 1/15th of a second and click. there is the shot.
