Courchevel from Chanrossa

This panorama was taken from halfway down Chanrossa. On the right you can make out Marmottes chairlift (at full resolution). Aiguille Du Fruit is off to the right somewhere. The mounds of snow in the bottom of the valley are huge and only when you zoom in can you appreciate the scale of the image.


I like the way the skiers give the scene some perspective but am unhappy about how the sun affects the blueness of the sky, I may do some more work on that sometime. It's also a bit of a shame that the foreground got in the way when I was taking the extreme right portion of the scene, although in some respects that also gives a sense of scale.


It is composed from 18 images.
