#3 Avoriaz

Skiers enjoying a leisurely decent at the Avoriaz ski resort, France.

This was taken from a ski lift with the smallest camera I own (a Canon XT/350D), during my first ever ski trip.  I was completely new to skis and of how the ski lift operated.  On the first few tries I wondered if I could safely hold on to the ski lift, the ski poles, my ski gloves and operate the camera at the same time.  Luckily, I can hold the camera, zoom and press the shutter all with one hand.

Every now and then I look into smaller cameras and come to the conclusion that I prefer the images that come from my DSLRs.  Technology always seems to improve though so maybe I’ll look again this coming summer.
