    Weather was not fine but acceptable for backcountry skiing. Fresh snow covered the landscape and thin clouds causing soft light which put some mystery on the scene.

    So beautiful and epic Reiner. I love how wide you shot this frame, I love the sense of scale. I love how the people are all walking in a straight line, in what appears to be a trail in the snow. I bet this was such an amazing experience for a backcountry ski trip. Meanwhile I am sitting in front of a computer underneath in an office building underneath fluorescent lights. Well done.
