Beaver Creek, Colorado
Another picture taken from Beaver Creek Ski Resort. This shot was taken just after lunch. I think this image really captured the foggyness of the resort that day, as the runs disappear into the haze.
Beaver Creek is near the town of Avon, CO and not far from the Vail resort. It operates 16 lifts that access 146 trails.
Beaver Creek is well known for being a previous residence of former US President Gerald Ford. They have recently renamed one of the advanced runs "President Ford's" in honor of him (he was also honored at Vail Resorts as well).

I like this almost postcard style shot. I like the contrast between the monochrome snow and trees and the bright orfits of the skiers. Also the ski slope leads the high through the picture upwards and through the trees. Wish I was there!

Very nice winter composition, with good colours' contrast and a fine perspective.
TFS and have a nice week!

Voilà un bien bel endroit pour le ski. Je trouve très original le reflet bleu sur les lunettes de la personne au premier plan. C’est bien vu !
Bien à toi et à bientôt,
