Last Wednesday was the full moon. It was an excellent night to go camping as it was warm, dry and incredibly stunning. We headed to a campsite near Hippy Lake just south of Whistler. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to take a decent star trail as the stars seemed a little faint however, fortunately, it turned out fairly well.

We have been blessed with some incredible weather in Whistler the past few days. This time of year is amazing. A great mix of people wandering through the village. Skiers, boarders, bikers, hikers, you name it, they are all strolling about.
A mate and I ducked into this awesome trail near the village and played around. Cut Yer Bars is a short but fun trail with some fast fun descents, a couple of cool rock rolls and a little bit of pedaling for good measure. It was a glorious day.

A little time lapse video of the star trail I took at Alta Lake the other night. I am still trying to figure out how to keep the image sharp as I seem to lose a fair bit of quality in the image processing.
If anyone has any advice let me know!

Change is in the air in Whistler at the moment. The sun is out, the days are warming up and the snow is melting extremely quickly. My thoughts have turned to biking and for the past week that is all I have been doing.
Work has slowed down rapidly and a couple of nights ago it was completely dead. I decided to call it quits, grab my camera and head down to the lake as it was a fairly clear night. A little bit of mist, fortunately not too much.
My aim was to attempt a star trail and as I was playing around taking some test shots I noticed a very obvious green tinge on the camera that my eyes weren’t picking up.
Hopefully we get some more nights like this over the next few months.
