Having seen a picture something like this on the cover of a book before heading back up to Ice Lake Basin, I thought it might be time to finally capture a decent backcountry picture including myself. I don't typically do this but I thought the scene needed a little context and besides, I was due for a selfie.

I also wanted to show the human side because I have something important to say... Every year brings its challenges and this year was no exception. On Thanksgiving weekend however, it feels like an especially good time to give thanks for family, friends, and all those people who fit somewhere in between. It's also a great time to let you (my viewers) know just how much I appreciate your support. From the views to the thoughtful comments, it's inspired me and driven my passion to pursue and share even more - something I can't tell you how much I appreciate. Thank you for all your support!

There is a lot more to this post... see the rest of the backstory, the technique, and get free wallpaper from http://www.coloradocaptures.com/san-juan-selfie-ice-lake-basin.
