I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Tom Sims passing away yesterday. He was an innovator and without him who the hell knows what I would be doing with my life now. This is a photo I took of Tom a few years back. It was great to get to know him over the past few years and this day shredding with him was nothing short of epic. I could sit and listen to him tell stories about the good old days for hours. He always had good ones! Thanks Tom, you will be greatly missed! Shred in peace....

I was just showcased with a Photo of the Day on The World Open a photo contest that is running until August 2012. I will be posting more images for the contest throughout the next two weeks so check it out and click the like button for my images please. I'm assuming it matters if you "like" the photos that are in the contest entries and not just the portfolio entries, however both are appreciated, and the link that differentiates those two things can be found on the lower right just below the image. Thanks. A direct link to my work can be found by clicking here.
As usual and with most riders and shooter the season begins jibbing in the streets. My season actually stated real early in October. Both in the streets and on the hill. I rode Wolf Creek (see earlier post) like October 8th. The earliest I've ever ridden there. After I got my fix it was game on. I love the first shooting times of the year. Reminds you of the cold, and the suffering that goes into shooting and shreding. Kind of gets you prepared for the long winter ahead. Below area few shots from the first quarter of my winter shooting in the streets.
