I apologize for the black and white scan — this photo actually does have color (you can see the actual photo on my photography page). But here’s my second published photo this month, a three-quarter spread in the September 2010 Gear Guide of Backcountry Magazine. This is a shot of Black Diamond boot designer Derek Gustafson, taken in Iceland last spring. We were there on a BD media trip, where we got to test out the latest skis and boots from BD’s new efficiency series. The fact that we happened to be there during a huge volcanic eruption that shut down all the airports in northern Europe was merely a coincidence. Thanks to BD for the trip, to Derek for being a good ski model, and to Backcountry’s photo editor, Simon, for running my shot.
