I was really pleased with the way this image came out, especially the sky, which seems to remind me space, as if the ski resort is perched high on some Alien planet (haha, probably just my vivid imagination).

Taken during my recent skiing holiday in Verbier, the Swiss Alps with my Panasonic Lumix G1, 45-200mm lens.

Processing carried out in CS3, with some assistance from Topaz filters.

Much, much better when viewed in large, especially to see the small details in the slightly dark sky.
