    No lift here, you skin up the hill one step at a time. Folks there tell me that this mountain Breithorn is the "easiest" 4,000m slope to get to. For a sea level guy like me, this looks close to suicide. BTW, post processed this into black and white with a high contrast red filter, which turned the deep blue sky in upper right corner into solid black. It made the snow dome the skiers are trekking on look like the edge of the moon.

    We really need to see a sense of scale in these EPIC winter landscapes and you have brought that to your audience perfectly well. It's such a minimal photograph in contrast, composition and detail with a very short narrative. However, it screams EPIC! Well done.
