Well I'm back from my trip to the French Alps.....we had a great time with stops in Annecy on the way there and Paris on the way back. As you can imagine, I took plenty of photos!
The problem for a change is where to begin :-)
This photo is one of my favourites from the trip even though it's perhaps not the best image quality as it was handheld using a telephoto lens at night (Nikon 70-300vr) although thanks to the inbuilt vibration reduction it turned out sharp enough even at this slow shutter speed.
It's a photo from the fantastic ski resort of Courchevel high up in the French Alps at an altitude of 1,850 meters and shows one of the resort workers heading off home through the snow after a long day at work.......this scene seemed completely extraordinary to me but I guess for him it was just the end of another long day at the office.
