So Münich received a nice soft blanket of snow during the week, but how were the mountains?
Good morning, Sun!
Plenty of Finns on a chu-chuu train to the goods.
And the goods were good.
Juha L took a shot of the ugly photographer who compensates the pretty skiing pictures.
This nice tunnel takes from the Gerlos tree runs back to the lifts.
Next target requires a bit more sweat. First shot by Juha L.
But it is worth the sweat.
Thanks to Juha L. I also get to be (a Teletubby) in front of the camera.
All smiles . Tracks on the left side are ours.
Juha B, checking the weather while others play with magnets. Good way to end the day!
Same places but slightly different routes. All boys this time and the weather has changed to gray skies. In Zillertal Arena the snow was cold but on Gerlos side the temperatures had risen up. The sun came out in the afternoon for few moments and wind was quite strong at times.
Juha B's turn to ski.
Juha L. put the heels down for today.
Juha L. managed to capture my small cliff drop which I decided to hit just five seconds before taking off. The powder landing was really nice.
That was it. Thank you Gerlos.
Note to self about the photo above:
Sequential photos were stitched into a panorama with Hugin. Due to noise the reference points were set by hand for each image pair. The moving target was then masked in where needed. White balance compensation helped a lot since the masked out parts had different snow colors in the originals. Final touch was to edit curves and colors in Gimp.
Old instructions and examples for reference.
