Every day we comb through our Instagram feed to find images from followers documenting our state. On Instagram we share a capture of the day, and each month in Maine magazine we highlight one of those photos.

My family and I were finishing up a day of skiing at Sunday River last December, and this sunset struck me as we took our final run of the day down Dream Maker trail. I have never had a bad day skiing in Maine, but this time I felt a real connection to the mountain and my surroundings. As
a photographer, I am continually looking for my next shot, and Sunday River has always provided the natural beauty and background I look for in my photos. I like taking pictures of sunsets, not only because they are visually appealing, but they often emphasize the end of a great day. The incredible mountain views from the slopes of Sunday River never cease to amaze me.
I have been skiing at Sunday River for as long as I can remember, and I always look forward to making the trip up several times each winter.
