Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.

Had a stop at the side of the piste to capture some skiers in action, this guy looked the part with the helmet and orange goggles.
The fun part was the number of Italians skiers that stopped and asked if I was taking images to sell.

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

That very short shutter speed has totally frozen the action completely: fine snow sports shot.

Great action take, crisp and clean with flying snow spray sparkling in the sun.

I think you could have made a killing with images like this Richard. Superb timing, the angle is spot on to keep the jacket out of the bright sun but the snow spray is lit up against the darker background. Excellent capture.

God I miss that feeling, I have not been skiing for the past two years and am longing to go next year.

This is a wonderful image of a skier who looks to have a nice style and giving those Atomics a good workout, well done Richard.
