Photographer's Note

This shot was taken while on a skiing holiday in the French Alps at La Plagne. It was late afternoon in January on the last run of the day and I wondered how my new digital camera would cope with taking tricky shots into direct sunlight. This shot was the result and is exactly as taken (apart from a little cropping).

Just to the right of centre, there is a strange lighting effect which is actually the sunlight reflecting off the ice crystals in the valley air - something that can only be seen when looking down into the valley from this height.
