Camera/Lens: Canon S95, 28-105mm f2-8.0
Theres something special about early morning in the high alpine in winter. The stillness and quietness is soul cleansing and a fresh blanket of snow gives a sense of newness and fragility. Theres nothing like clipping into your skis and making your own tracks in the pristine snow.
On this occasion a few centremetes of snow overnight along with the thaw from above zero temperatures the day before covered the snowgums with a thin layer of ice. It was a stunning scene when we peered out of the tent in the morning. Travelling light, I only had my little point and shoot Canon S95. It’s a wonderful little camera that shoots 10 Megapixel Raw images and has a minimum aperture of f2. It fits easily into a pocket so it is with me almost always – great to shoot anything from the kids to landscapes.
