Last weekend, Mike and I took our last trip up to Big Bear for the season, during which my snowboarding skillz reached their high point. After trying snowboarding for the first time earlier this year in year in January, I think it’s safe to say I caught the bug. I mean, snowboarding is crazy hard, but it’s a lot of fun. Not to mention, you don’t have to be a good snowboarder to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you; You really can’t beat the scenery up there.
Since this was our third trip up to Big Bear in the past six months, I was excited to explore some new areas and, more importantly, to capture some new photos with my DSLR. The majority of my photos thus far have come from the more “tourist-y” areas of Big Bear, like Boulder Bay and The Village, so I wanted to go off the beaten path this trip, specifically, around the other, less populated side of the lake.
And the results were breathtaking. The combination of a snowy mountain backdrop against sparkling water is one that is truly unique (gotta love California). Here are some of my favorite shots from the weekend.
Don’t let the brightness fool you– it was actually really chilly! For more pictures from Big Bear, check out my full album on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/alyssawithana/
