Today, I left the Nikon behind to do some serious skiing. Covered 8,000 vertical metres of skiing on another beautiful day, although the sky was becoming veiled with high cirrus cloud as the day progressed.
So, images were captured at suitable moments on the Canon G10. The pair you see here are of a section of the ‘White Hare’ piste taken from the cable car rising from Gant to Hohtalli. You only get one shot at these. The cable car was not gong to stall in mid-air to wait for skiers to assume the perfect position!
As is so often the case, colour really contributed nothing to the overall effect, and the conversion to B&W allowed the contrast to increase. As I have said before, B&W is a medium that tolerates the exploitation of contrast in a way that colour would not.
