    Reported by:

    Avalanche rescuedog, view from a burried person. More than 2000 persons have been caught and buried in avalanches only in Switzerland in recent years.Rescuedogs provide valuable services in finding buried humans.Training these dogs is time consuming and a lot of endurance is required for both the dog and his handler. I have accompanied the avalanche rescuedog team under the leadership of Nicole Dammann a full day during their training session in Melchsee Frutt.

    The perspective really makes this image fun and unique, I feel like Iā€™m in the snow cave. Well done!
