Today promised but didn’t deliver. It was supposed to be sun and cloud but actually it was cloud, flat light and near whiteout. Skiers are a hardy bunch and a little bit of rubbish weather doesn’t completely deter us, although in whiteout you ‘feel’ the slope rather than see it. I’m pleased to say I remained on my feet.
Today’s subject is uphill transport – what would we do without it? The answer is a lot less skiing downhill. All three of today’s images would I suppose fall approximately into the High Key category. The light really dictated that, and so I capitalised on that factor. The first shot was taken from ground level looking across to another lift. The range of tones attracted me to this daisy chain of cabins.
The other two images were taken from the chair lift up to Furggsattel. The first one with the Canon G10, and then I decided that I would try out the D7000 and that was used for the final image (and the top image) where the light resulted in the lift appearing to be almost suspended in the flat-lit mountain-scape.
I don’t have enough time this week to do my usual viewing and commenting on your work – I’ll rectify that when we return to the UK. Many thanks for your comments and ‘Likes’ – they are always appreciated.
