Flying

By saltireblue    
Finally!!!
A weekend where the sun put in an appearance. Only one thing to do, grab the camera and head for the local downhill ski-slope a leisurely 20 minute drive down the road. The hill has been designed by Mother Nature so that the afternoon sun hits the slopes head on, thus providing, on this occasion at least, clear blue skies.

A little taster of the conditions...more to come.

Many thanks for the recent interest in my uploads...you are a generous and discerning lot.WinkGrin

Thanks for bothering.

It must be great Malcolm to have that much shutter speed with 100 ISO.You have caught the action ever so well. Has the person on the right thrown his skis away in disgust?...

Willie is such a whizbang at doing mods! Now why can't people position themselves properly in the frame.

Such beautiful weather Malc - even in Bergen the sun is shining brightly these days Smile There is nothing like the sky in Norway when high pressure dominates - the clarity is amazing, so is your pov here.

Dan, lots of the youngsters these days just use their arms for balance and don't use poles at all. Smart-@rsed youngsters!Sad

The light was so bright that I was using up to 1/2000 at ISO 100Grin
