Plein Air Excitement - the new Sea to Sky Gondola

Now that the weather is good, it feels great to get outside and experience the best of BC

our Whistler Out of Bounds group ventured out to check out the new Sea to Sky Gondola  south of Squamish, along with photographer Diane Hanna.. dramatic scenery on a dramatic weather day made for interesting and challenging conditions

there are some great view points/vistas and lookouts, and the trails are very accessible  - it feels like cheating getting whisked up to the top with lots of plein air gear, but for those that didn't inherit the "packing lightly" plein air gene,  its just perfect!

Sea to Sky Gondola check out   http://www.seatoskygondola.com

here is one of the lookouts and suspension bridge

and then the vista I painted from all day... complete with overhanging lookout!

the good news... is that you are on top of a mountain.... paradise... the bad news... is that you are on top of a mountain!... very challenging conditions as the clouds kept rolling in....
Photographer Diane captured the moving fog and cloud...
nothing like some creative composition on the fly!
one of my three pieces from that day in progress
a fabulous day! highly recommended
