[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my last item of my summer 'cooling' series from Sölden ski resort, Tyrol, Austria. This ratrac is a special one for injured skiers to get down to the valley in the shortest time possible and in safe. I hope it is used quite rarely...

Hi Kristof,
Very chilly scene, I bet the 'Ratrac' in this photo is worth a fortune! The mountains certainly put it in perspective, the bold red stands out from the whites nicely. Well seen, your note helped to understand what this was.

Hi Kristof,

Interesting piece of machinery and great POV in your photo. The red of the ractrac really stands out against the mountain and it looks poised to conquer all. Very sharp with excellent DOF.

Best regards,

Hi Kristof

The red cabin contrasts well against the blue sky. The white snow enhances the graphism. Good sharpness throughout. Well done!

Ciao Kristof

Thinking that this is your last day of summer,
funny how the seasons are in the world,
you have to see snow and cold, I will
with excess of sun and dry.
A beautiful look of red on the white snow,
and I hope you enjoyed it and your season.

Hello Kristof,
This is really an interesting piece of equipment,something like a snow ambulance for ski resorts. Great details & as you say I hope it is not used often but it is definately a + having one available ,just in case of an emergency.I like your tight crop makes for a strong composition.

encore en très belle image de ces montagne avec la belle neige, cette ratrack rouge donne une superbe touche de couleurs, superbe image.

Bravo et amitié


Hello Kristof,
The bright red of the Snowcat is a welcomed hue to the cold white of the winter's freeze. Excellent image throughout...

Hi Kristof..nice tones and details...great tones.
