my favorite B+W from this ski winter

"When the helicopter is gone, along with the white noise of travel, expense and the complications of life, the only thing left is the naked black and white of alpine winter, where even the green of the trees seems to retreat into monochrome, as if colour itself were a waste of warmth. The guides track is the only remnant of humanity, a serpentine beacon leading the way to fun, friendship, challenge and adventure." (Topher Danahue-Bugaboo Dreams)

What makes these pictures special for me is the fact that they are all made during regular ski operation with me guiding a group and no special set ups. They are also done with my little G9, which proved to be a useful camera during guiding work.
