The Shunned Season
What’s to like about it?
The warm and long days of summer give way to the dark and wet mornings of Autumn. It’s no wonder November is dreaded. For cyclists, November marks the end of the season. For skiers and snowboarders, November can’t pass fast enough.
In a place like Whistler where the town is always full of outdoor enthusiasts and tourists, November marks a time of calmness. It’s as though the mountains are saying, “Soon, my friend”. It’s void of the usual mayhem.
This slideshow of stills captured in early November in Whistler illustrates The Shunned Season.
I discovered that it’s actually a great time to enjoy the outdoors – without the usual mountain bike or skis. Instead, I enjoyed it while looking through my camera with eyes wide open.
