Damn it! Sometimes things just don’t work out in your favour. Blessings in disguise? Not sure if I believe in such things. Things are what you make them is what I’m going to roll with.
This past Saturday while shooting the Fox Pro Am at Giba Gorge I got a call asking if I wanted to head down to Tiffindell to shoot the Miller Ski & Snowboard invitational. How could I pass that up? Problem was I had one day to get all my shot together, source some warm clothes and recover from a drastic hangover thanks to Durban’s always rocking I Heart Durban parties. No small feat.
To cut a long story short I left Durban at 3am on Monday morning, survived the eight hour drive, shot photos of the following two days whilst snowboarding in between. Unfortunately I left the day snow arrived and I bet everyone there is currently having the most amazing time bombing some powdered peaks. Snowboarding really isn’t like anything else and I’d like to thank Nicola, Piere and Liam for such a great time.
PS. If you ever go to Tiffindell, make sure you absorb how rad the little town of Rhodes is. It’s a gem.
