Seefeld 2019: Gallery

Two weeks at the world nordic ski championships in Austria meant a lot of people met, a lot of stories seen and heard, and a lot of photos taken, from the ski jumper, above, flying toward the Alps, to the Seekirchl (church by the lake) in Seefeld by moonlight, below, to all the faces of nordic ski sport. Click here for the gigantic gallery, if you dare. When you get to the gallery, mouse over and click the images on the right-hand side arrow to speed up the slide show. Or just relax with a cup of something and let the show run. This is a lot of photos, but it’s the just the tip of the snowberg.

Seefeld World Nordic Championships #3


Catching up with a few days of racing at Seefeld. Above, Norway’s Therese Johaug exults after winning the women’s 15-k skiathlon. She had been suspended (in a baffling move by ski authorities) from competition for 18 months for using a lip cream that contained a steroid, and, in her first world championship since, she was ready to strike back. Below, Sweden’s Maja Dahlqvist embracing teammate Stina Nilsson after the two won the team sprint; the US’s Jessie Diggins is in the background. The rest are from the skiathlon and team sprint.

Seefeld World Nordic Ski Championships #2

Still cannot enable my galleries but here are a few from the big sprint championship day yesterday. Both men’s and women’s races were won by Norwegians (no surprise!). American men and women had some good results, including Simi Hamilton’s 9th place, but no podium finishes. Details and more photos at Fasterskier.com and on Instagram @lazenbyphoto. Above, Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo, en route to the men’s 1.6-kilometer win and orchestrating a selfie on the podium.

Northfield Sky & Barn

About as Vermont Lifey as I get. But I couldn’t resist. Of course, the state has seen fit to kill off the withering Vermont Life. RIP.

Daughter, Mother

Ran into these two in Harrisonburg, Virginia, having breakfast at The Little Grill Collective. I’ve heard it said that a window is the same thing as a big softbox (a piece of photography equipment that diffuses light for a softer look). Definitely true in this case. You can see the reflection of the window in the eyes. And there’s something familiar about these two …

Good Day in the Mountains

Beautiful winter day in the mountains yesterday: sun and cold, new snow. That’s Camel’s Hump with Mt. Mansfield sticking up behind it in the top photo, as seen from Sugarbush North. Others are both from Sugarbush North. Because of the angle, Camel’s Hump and Mansfield aren’t showing their usual distinctive profiles.

Greetings from the Season

Holiday greetings from the frozen north. For the first time in a few years we’ll have an authentic northern New England white Christmas.  It did rain on top of the whiteness most of today but we have nearly two feet of snow, so it’s still here. It’s going to get cold and snow some more, and that means an old-fashioned Vermont Christmas. Happy Holidays! All the photos were taken within a mile of home. Unless I’m guessing wrong, that’s a rescued greyhound out for a stroll in the top one.


Catching Up on Oregon

It’s dramatic wherever you go in Oregon. Above, grass seed growers near Salem burn off the fields after harvesting seed and straw. Below, Silver Falls State Park and Tumalo Falls in the Deschutes National Forest near Bend. Click here for a gallery.
