It was pretty cold and I nearly froze off my toes. No joke. -30°C (ok with wind) …. so we never got to go to Mont Fort this year. I still took a lot of pictures and I’ll make a gallery of the best and I’ll upload a few at flickr.
The apartment was right next to the ski-lift with a great view (don’t ask how many of our photos were taken from the balcony), a fireplace and lots of wineglasses.
The snow was good except where stones came through (yeah our neighbors said they had never seen so little snow there at the end of january for the past 15 or so years. It snowed the first 1.5 days we were in Veysonnaz and after that sunshine and cold.
There are landscapes and black & white shots up on flickr.

Just gotta fix a couple of bugs and then ….. guess what I am going to do?

So today we went out to maybe find a store where I could buy (and of course return) a lense until I get the one I web-ordered. Anyway I didn’t feel like ripping of any of the few small left-over specialized photo stores and I didn’t want to go to any of the two places where I didn’t buy the camera because web was cheaper. So there were too electronics gadgets markets left to try for a lense: Multimediamarkt & Makromarkt.
The result of our lense odyssee? Well quite funny actually.
