Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Zermatt, Switzerland on the Gornergrat. I'd spotted the line for Jorg to ski from the piste and thought it would make a great shot.
Time
It was taken early afternoon, we were lucky to still get fresh tracks here as the pitch was right by the piste.
Lighting
The lighting is all natural, and hasn't been edited at all. The dark section at the bottom of the photo is totally natural.
Equipment
Canon 7d mark ii and Canon 70-200 IS f4
Inspiration
The great ridgeline with the mountains in the background was crying out for a photo, and the snow looked so inviting.
Editing
Just standard raw file processing, the shadows are all natural.
In my camera bag
Camera, 24-70 and a 70-200, flash, spare battery, shovel, avalanche probe, climbing skins, water and always wear an avalanche transceiver.
Feedback
Get up early to get the best untracked snow, and something like the 7d Mark ii that can shoot at a really high rate is great for ski shots as the action happens so quickly.
