2013 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest

I’m proud to say that I had a winning image in the 2013 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest. I also had winning photos in 2011 and 2009. Each time you win, you have to sit out a year, so that is the only downside to having a photo selected. I’ll be on the sidelines for 2014, but that won’t stop me from hiking and shooting pictures.

My photo of our daughter at Mizpah Spring Hut took first place in the “AMC in Action” category. Our July 2013 trip to the White Mountains was full of good images, but the “Packboard Banjo” shot was my favorite, and it’s never been posted until now.

It’s captioned: “This image of our daughter is from a post-Jackson pit-stop, our son’s first all self-powered 4000 footer. I’ve gotten great afternoon light through the windows of Mizpah on many occasions. I love the contrast of youth and history in this photo, and envision our kids wearing that packboard, years from now, when they are Croo.”

If you know the AMC and its history, there is a lot of symbolism in this image. 2013 was the 125th anniversary of our club’s hut system and we had a year-long celebration, so I’m even happier that my image was from a hut. I took the photo with my Leica M9 and Summilux-M, 1:1.4/35mm ASPH lens. ISO 320 was set and shutter speed was 1/60th. The M9 hasn’t been recording aperture (I think it should, though my early model is struggling with recording it), but it was probably F2.8 or F4.0. It’s not relevant.

Congratulations to all of the winners. I enjoy seeing everyone else’s work. I’m happy to say that my vote for the “People’s Choice Award Winner” was selected. What a cool rime ice photo. Check all of the great photos out.

We explored a few historic mill sites in #Dobsonville and #Talcottville on our way from #Vernon to #SouthWindsor via #mountainbike They only had black and white back when these old New England factories were pumping out textiles. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #sevencycles #islabikes

Great Friday morning #carfreecommute Tomorrow is a big day for the @eastcoastgreenway Workers will install these pre-fab steel spans on two gaps in the Manchester to Bolton connection. One will cross Camp Meeting Road. I also cut through #WickhamPark for the first time in 2018 and spent some time with my deer 🦌 friends. It looks like the worst park roads will get some much needed maintenance. #eastcoastgreenway #railtrail 🚴🏽

My first #carfreecommute since I upgraded my Nashbar panniers (good value) to a new custom set from @dillpicklegear These beauties are #madeinusa and a better match for my @seven_cycles Axiom SL. They work fine in cold weather. Where is spring? ❄️ The landscape image with the logs and solar panels is the start/finish of the fiend Silk City Cyclocross at Manchester Community College. I love solar, but the soccer and baseball fields are gone, which is sad. #sevencycles #teamhorstsports
Fun day at the MT. TAMMANY 10 ultra in #delawarewatergap @trailrunningmom ran 10 hours and 20 minutes or so for 38+/- Miles and 12,000 feet of up and 12,000 feet of down. I’ll have a race report and more photos tomorrow night. #mttammany #trailrunning #ultrarunning #mttammany10 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃🏻❄️⛰📷
Images from 1) The Start and 2) End of Loop One at the MT. TAMMANY 10 ultra in #delawarewatergap @trailrunningmom and about 39 other whackos have 10 hours to complete 10 four mile loops including the 1,200 foot ascent(and 1,200 foot descent) of #mttammany That’s a lot of up and down on snowy, icy, rocky, and rooty trails. This is Deb’s version of a scrimmage. She is working her way back into shape after the long layoff since #cascadecrest100 last summer. I’m happy to just watch this one. #trailrunning #ultrarunning #mttammany10 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃🏻❄️⛰📷
