I love Marquette, but let’s be honest - the winters are pretty depressing. I was feeling a little down today, being cooped up indoors since it was about -11 and a whiteout. I decided to look at some pictures that I had taken of past winters I’ve spent here, and was reminded that even with the isolation and the cold, there is a lot of beauty in these frigid months. There is something really beautiful about a day spent in a cozy coffee shop, or exploring familiar sites that have been completely transformed by ice. This winter, instead of looking at the things that I can’t do because of the cold and snow, I am going to try to recognize the unique experiences that come with UP winters.

Whales’ Tails // Burlington, VT - 02.23.11
Dan (kapitolphoto) here. I’m the new marketing nerd here at Line HQ.I thought I’d dig into my archives and post some photos that haven’t really been seen. Here’s a little back story into one of my favorite ski photos that I’ve taken.
In February ‘11, I headed north from my home office outside of Boston on a quick trip to photograph in & around Burlington, VT for freeskiermagazine (Read Here). While in BVT, I got to highlight some of the people living up there which make it a truly unique place. Among those people were the guys Geoff & Rooster from Meathead Films. They had invited me to tag along for an urban shoot that evening. I accepted.
The next day I wrapped up some more interviews and headed south back to Massachusetts when I got a call from Rooster. They had one more shoot put together and asked if I wanted to swing by. Tired, I almost declined.
I’m glad I did go; these are the photos that resulted.
