The Andy Aupperlee Explosion 5000

Puget Sound

Stevens Pass Powder

by on Dec.12, 2010, under Puget Sound, Seattle, Ski, Sport, Washington State

Even though I’ve only got six days under my belt this season; I can confidently say it’s going to be a good one. Stevens Pass got dumped on last week and we were there to grab first tracks in some newly opened, higher elevation terrain. The short little clip above comes from just outside the ski area boundary near the Tye Mill lift. Russ Keck and Justin Day are the skiers.

This video is only the beginning. Expect a lot more skiing and alpine content on the Explosion this winter—both video and stills. The combination of La Nina, a seasons pass to Stevens, and a handful of other trips planned should make this an epic season. Stay tuned.

Blue Angels: Bombs Over Bellevue

Break Formation

The Blue Angels made their annual visit to Seattle last weekend as apart of the Seafair festivities. Even though this is my fourth summer in the Emerald City, I’ve never actually made it down to Lake Washington to watch their show. While working at Boeing Field last year, I saw the squad come in and take their customary parking space at the south end of the runway. Blue Angel fans camped out along the airfield waiting for the F/A-18s to land in Seattle. After joining the crowd at the I-90 bridge this year, I understand the buzz that accompanies these daredevils. Watching the Blue Angels dip, dive and scream their Boeing jets along the water was exciting.

Golf at Redmond Ridge

Keith chips on

Yesterday, a few us cruised out to Redmond Ridge to knock around the Titleist. I helped organize a four person scramble with eight teams. We certainly didn’t win, but our team was pleased with an inspired one-under score (thanks to a 15 foot biride putt on 18 by yours truly). The majority of the glory hardly belongs to me—my golf skills are certainly inferior to the two other things I did yesterday: take pictures and drink beer.

Dr. Jose Rizal Park

Jose Rizal Park. Seattle, WA. March 23, 2008. 8:19 PM.

25 sec. @ f/16. ISO 200.

Late last month I decided that I wanted to photograph Seattle from the south. Since I live in a neighborhood north of downtown, I usually shoot cityscapes from Queen Anne, Ballard, Fremont or out my window in Wallingford. What I have not found in these northern boroughs is a view of the city that incorporates I-5. The hills south of the downtown offer vantage points of the skyline and the juggernaut of an interstate that bisects the city.
