Last week The Boy went on a skiing holiday. He took my camera with him and, even though I felt the deprivation, I’m very glad he did. I have never ever been skiing and for some reason I never even imagined that the alpine mountaintops are so very stunning. I loved going through the pictures he took and thought I’d share some here (with his permission) as they are so different from my usual photos.
Looking at these pictures, I can almost breathe in the crisp, fresh air. It must be so extraordinary to stand on the top of a mountain and only see snow and sky.
I thought this was layer of rock on the mountain but The Boy explained that no, that’s a glacier! Don’t you love its steely iciness?
There were a couple of days when the weather wasn’t sunny and clear and the visibility wasn’t good. The mountains still look beautiful though, and a bit scary.
But then, more good days followed and everything was fresh and bright again.
All pictures taken by The Boy.
