Perfect weather, snow, motivation and colleges. Me and Matilda met up with Gian and Steffi yesterday. Everybody was excited for such a excellent day so we went up and prepared for the day we get those perfect shots. But as soon as we started I couldn't get it to work. Everything just felt wrong. Nothing worked I couldn't get the timing right. There was some misunderstandings of what line they should ride. The sun was getting higher, stronger and therefore the photos flatter and harder. But we decided to go for another run and try our luck.
This time we ended up with more or less the same experience so we gave up, ended up in the sun enjoying some pasta. We said the day before that it would be nice to end the day with a run in Val Strem. To get there you have to do a small hike and then you end up in the neighbouring village taking the train back. After some discussion Matilda and I ended up doing the run. It was late and the sun was going down. Beautiful golden light but since we had such a bad aftertaste from the rest of the day we decided to just have fun and ride not stopping for photos.
Next day I load the photos into my computer and realize some of them were actually quite good. To my surprise we nailed some of them and they didn't turn out as boring as I thought. They might not be the best I have taken but I thought they are worth a post mainly because I realized that you should never stop. In the future I will always continue shooting through the day even if it feels like it's not my day. The most frustrating part is that we didn't take those last photos, they could've been perfect in that golden sunset. So from now on I will never stop.
