Two friends making their way to the summit of Frosty Mountain on a recent backcountry ski trip.
Unfortunately, the conditions weren't right to ski the bowl below the summit.
Processed in LR and Topaz BW.

Lovely shot with nice processing. The weather seemed fair enough, why didn't they ski it? Avalanche danger or too icy?

Thank you. The weather was excellent, we didn't ski the slope due to avalanche danger (an unstable layer quite deep in the snow pack - hard to trigger, but high consequence if it did slide).

What a wonderful shot - B&W works so well with this composition, with the people providing scale. Super photo.
