    Hi

    Today I was planning to go downhill skiing, but when I finally got to the slopes I saw pictures all over the place just waiting to be taken. Fortunately I am m4/3 user so I have my kit where ever I go, even when downhill skiing. It was -23 degrees celsius and the slopes were partially covered by freezing clouds but that made the scenery much more interesting than on a usual skiing day. I am a bit embarrased to put these images after seeing such a wonderful images at Grahams portfolio site, but here they are anyway. I'm sorry for the high ISO, my Vivitar isn't good enough at 3,5 so I had to stop it to 5,6 and the sun doesn't stay up too long at this time of the year here at 68 degrees north. I hope you enjoy.

    My helmet was covered by ice at the end of the day but fortunately the E-P1 wasn't.

    Ville, nothing to be embarrassed about! On the contrary, you are to be admired for being out on the slopes with your camera - plus it looks to me as though this was some pretty intense skiing! You ski with a backpack and a tripod and your camera?

    That one of the moon above the snow covered tree tops, number 4, is my favorite. I salute you for your efforts and your photos, Ville!

    Thanks for your kind comments. I had my camera backpack in car and when I realized that there were so many photos around me I had to take it with me to the slopes. Actually I don't own any kind of tripod or monopod. The first three were hand held, because I didn't want to be too obvious that I was shooting the other photographer and therefore I was pretending that I was shooting in other directions too :redface:.
    The rest of the photos were taken while supporting the camera on something around me. I am so glad for having in-body image stabilization, if not in me then at least in the camera. :smile:

    I remain impressed. Add in the fact that it sounds as though it was awfully cold!

    Cold yes, but after a certain point your hands come amazingly steady :rofl:

    Nothing to be embarrassed about.

    Really love the high ISO on the first three pictures. Gives an authentic look in my opinion.
    Thanks for sharing
