They promised snow (again) overnight – and none appeared. My mind is however on places where there is most definitely snow. The Alps got off to a poor start this winter with very poor snow cover but as I write the snow has been falling and the conditions are looking very good.
Time spent riding uphill on a chairlift, exposed to the weather, is always an opportunity to take a good look around. Sitting on a bench, possibly accompanied by others, or best when alone, suspended in thin air with a bird’s eye view of the landscape, is a special experience. You see things very differently, and if you can get yourself organized (pocketing gloves, securing ski poles) and have the camera easily to hand, there are images to capture.
Some of the best are seen below one’s feet, and if the light is right and the shadows are cast, then the lift’s hardware becomes the picture. For another view – a selfie – click here.
