A Photo Walk in Whistler's First Snowfall of the Year

Whistler, British Columbia, Canada


John Entwistle

There is something magical about the first big snowfall of each winter. Tonight we got our first big dump here in Whistler, and of course I took my camera for a walk.

The first snowfall warning of the year always brings me a huge amount of excitement. Tonight, upon arriving home, I saw snowflakes the size of pancakes falling from the sky. I knew it was going to make for a pretty sweet photo walk, even if I didn't venture further than 100 feet from my front door!

Winter is coming, and here is some photographic evidence that it might already be here: 

The commute was a rough one, to say the least.

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Our Hike to Angels Landing: Dangerous? Maybe. Amazing? Definitely.

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
