Your best pics of 09-10

Postby EMSC » Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:31 pm

Not a contest, just wanted to see the 'best of' pictures you took this season. Lets say max of 2 pictures per person? Or would that be per web personality? Just in case too many of you have alter ego's :lol: .

Personally I didn't get many days on snow and virtually no pics of virgin pow skiing action so I'm going with racing action for my two best pics of the season:

Fun topic.

Does "of me" count for "by me"? :mrgreen: Well, I did set up the shot and it was taken with my camera, after all! :wink:

Another favorite was taken the same day of Mt. Baldy with one lone patroller track on Harold's:

Lots of interesting discussion on that exact type of issue on photography web sites. If I recall, you're supposed to do a dual credit on the photo even if you did 99% of the work and they only pushed the shutter release when you told them to do so.

For this thread, "of you" is perfect material. Hmmm.... I do have an awesome scenic or two, and those kind of shots are inspiring too. But for me I always tend to select some sort of action pics as my best. I guess since they are harder to stage/get.

It was Nikki's first black ever. This picture represents the future of many more runs to follow.

Sure it does. What ski area is dumb enough to install a single chair?

I only lugged my camera around for one day this season. I got a few shots that didn't turn out too bad, here's two:

That last pic of cloud inversion is not uncommon at many ski areas but very rare at Mammoth in my experience, presumably due to the chronic wind.

I didn't bring a camera out much this year and I live in Michigan, so nothing too exciting, but here's 2:
