In a hot tub packed to the brim, I celebrated a new year, with new friends. As much as I was excited to welcome 2018, I was far more excited to bid 2017 “good riddance”. I expected to take photos everyday in Keystone, but in reality, I took surprisingly few. The camera was a pain to carry, and because of the cold, even more so to use. But, the main reason why I didn’t shoot was a lack of light. Days are short in Summit County, and instructing takes up a fair amount of time.
