Switzerland Part 2 – The Alps

The Swiss Alps (insert big sigh here).
One word. Epic. Just Epic.
Being the world’s most famous mountain range does not dim the sheer beauty of this place or the people. Young and old, tourists and locals alike, flock to these supreme slopes with the intention of  carving them up! And thats exactly what the majority of them do.
I did a bit of carving (and some stacking) in the Mannlichen region of the alps a week ago. It really is such a sublime part of the world. The sheer size of these mountains is astonishing, especially when you compare them to our ant hill sized slopes back home in Oz.
In between the thrills and spills I managed to get a couple of shots. 
I also have a new respect for photographers that work at the snow. Shooting in such bright white conditions is tough!
Enjoy.
