Inspiration from the Alps – Off The Beaten Track

And I thought of sharing some pictures we took during our ski trip in this series of captioned photographs.

I would think the best way to express the beauty of the Alps, the skiing and snowboarding is through a poetry. But I am too much of an amateur, both in writing and in this sport to do so, thus this series.

I learned that it was not easy to lug a camera up the mountain for an amateur skier or boarder, even harder, for an amateur photographer like myself. But I was glad we managed to do it, without any serious damage.

Some of these pictures were taken using our compact Olympus Stylus 1010, others by our bulkier Canon PowerShot S5 IS. These pictures will be presented as they are, with little or no colour processing, except resizing and adding of captions.

So sit back, relax and be inspired. Hopefully.


We discovered off pistes skiing which typically refers to any skiing a few metres away from or between controlled trails and slopes. Skiing on ungroomed and unmarked slopes.

We further learned about the many different types of skiing.
