    Thanks a lot for your comments. I just love snow as a lightsource.

    @LaFoto:
    Not exactly sun all the time. More like "oh, sun's out" *grabs pre-packed camera bag and lenses and rushes out*. Just like now ;-) *rushes off*

    Thanks for the comments everyone, feels good to finally have taken a good picture :).

    @skiboarder:
    I used the 70-300 f/4-5.6 G
    Suffering from it's chromatic abberation these days because of the mostly harsh contrasts between the subject and the snowy background.
