Lech is in the same skiing area as the better known St Anton in the Austrian Alps. I took the photo from a gondola on a very high avalanche alert day. Luckily there was no serious avalanche except for the smaller ones triggered by the mountain staff.

Congrats on the blue. Thanks for adding the notes. Gondola vantage point never occurred to me. I thought maybe you had hiked to a higher peak... Again congrats. Beautiful shot.

Outstanding capture of the cornices formed by the winds. Wonderful detail and impressive control of exposure. (I might have let a small percentage of the blacks to go black.) Bumping this up.

Nice S curves. Very clean. Nothing like seeing untouched snow. Hope you include notes on where and how you got here; always like the back story to a photo. Yeah, this is a 10.
