I recently had one of my all-time best days of shooting. And of course, I was alone. I endured freezing rain, massive, powerful gusts of wind and shivered until the night turned to light. If this sounds torturous… well, that’s because to some degree it was. But at the same time it was invigorating, it was exciting and when the darkest midnight hues warmed to light, baby blue, it can be more than worth it.

We woke up to the dark echoes of an unfamiliar sound. The canyon roared. Minds began racing; were we high enough?

I didn’t know what to expect from Hampi. Well, to be more specific, Hampi and the surrounding area. Known as one of the best and most unique ruin and temple destinations in India, it certainly didn’t disappoint. Besides the Rome-esque feel to the many sights, such as Vitthala Temple and Virupashka Temple, these ruins are situated among some of the oldest rocks on earth.

After 30 hours on a train, Gokarna, India, was a well-needed respite. Although it is completely unlike all other parts of India I have experienced, as well as completely different from what I had expected from a beach town in India, it is in its own holiday-retreat way, charming. Comprised of three main beaches and two lesser developed beaches, Gokarna couldn’t possibly get any more peaceful.

I do not know how for how long the snow fell, but by the time I hit the slopes the accumulative snowpack was reported at two meters. I’ve skied Utah, and this snow rivaled the “best snow on earth!” It was “blower”, “over the head”, “deepest day of the year”, etc. etc.
