Here is a silhouette of my wife during a recent cross country ski trip. We are learning how to “skate,” which is a style of cross country skiing that is new to us. Instead of skiing traditionally with the skis parallel in the tracks (shown in the right third of the photo), the skis are positioned pointing out away from the centerline. You can see the herringbone pattern in the snow that skaters leave behind. To propel oneself you push the skis away from the centerline in a “skating” motion.
It is quite fun to do and very good exercise, but requires skill to make it look easy. We’re not there yet. 🙂
I waited for my wife to get to the top of the hill so that I could catch a good silhouette of her. Also, the horizon is about 1/3 from the top of the photo and there is a nice leading line provided by the tracks to take you to the skier which aids in the composition of the shot.
As you are out having fun with your various activities, try to capture the moment with your camera. They help to bring back fond memories.
