A Guides Eye View

June 18, 2018

Two mountain guides direct a helicopter into land high in the Swiss Alps. I took this shot whilst shooting an extreme ski and snowboard competition - the Nendaz Freeride FWQ. I had been dropped just before on the peak and with the permission of the guides cowered down behind them to capture this shot when the remaining supplies were delivered. My lens took a bit of a battering and I could only hold myself in position properly for a few seconds as the rush of snow debris was insane at this point.

Thanks Dale, much appreciated!

Awesome shot Philip, I love it. You stuck it out and did what you needed to do, to get the shot. The fact that it's in B&W just adds to it for me. Good work.
