When you live in Utah it is pretty easy to find a world class winter sporting event without really even trying. On this particular Saturday, 12/28/13 it happened to be the Nordic portion of the US Nordic Combined teams Olympic Trials! PPPC say’s HELL YES to all forms of Nordic skiing and racing and proceeded to take 465 pictures! Below are the best ones;(click on photo’s to enlarge to full screen)

Even the kids get in on the stoke as the athlete’s were led into the comp by Park City Nordic Team athlete’s!

When it comes to sunsets, everyone is always focused on island and beach locations as far as where the best sunsets occur. I would argue it is in the mountains, pre and post storm front. Here is my evidence;(click on pics to expand to full size)

Someone might want to call the forest service as it appears the mountains have burst into flames.

Just an average evening and then the sky starts exploding.

4 Alarm!

Storms fronts move massive amounts of moisture which the suns rays then refract into fantasy skyscapes. The mountainous Utah terrain is the location to capture this effect first hand!
Keep on snapping!
