This is one of my favourite areas, and just a very small part of it. The real joy of skiing is having that freedom to ski different lines through this mountainscape, down to the lift and then back up to the top, and start all over again. And it is this type of day that lends itself to monochrome images – the starkness of the trees against the white of the snow. The light was still diffused, but then that makes imaging a little easier. When the light is too bright, then balancing highlight and shadow is difficult. If only every day was like this!
