Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Swampy Shelter at dusk

Swampi Shelter at dusk

Sometimes you have to plan ahead to get the photo you want. I envisioned a photo of the Swampy Lakes Shelter at dusk with some pink sky behind it.

Before heading out at around 2 PM I packed two Nikon SB800 Speedlights which I outfitted with a yellow gel each. It is much easier to do this ready in the warmth of your home. I brought my trusted Nikon D800 with a 24-70 Zoom lens and a carbon fiber tripod.

After skiing up through the forest I placed the two Flash units in the hut and used Pocket Wizard wireless transmitters to trigger them remotely from my camera. My wife was sitting in the shelter keeping an eye on the flash and shifting them into perfect location. The shoot took less than 10 minutes before we could ski back to the car park. Needless to say the run trough the forest at dusk was pure beauty.

I further enhanced the image in Photoshop so the yellow light in the shelter would contrast nicely with the blue tones of the snow.
