The Säntis (Switzerland) cablecar brings you above the clouds after an impressive climb along its massive glacier. To survive on Alps in winter you should not forget what I forgot:
– sun glasses
– sun cream
– thin warm gloves
About photo gears, I was the only photographer up there without
I had them, but their profile is to high for my new lenses and give strong vignetting.
Despite 5 of the most important points were not respected, I had plenty of battery, three different light meterings to test and several memory cards. This (and HDR and photo retouch) helped to have material for this new artborghi gallery on flickr.com : click it and enjoy the show!

Having my D800 for the first time on the ski slopes made me really appreciate this camera. I could not realize before how few were the “whites” present in my pictures. And how cool is to capture the moon light on white mountains, even without tripod. Last but not least, how easy is to shoot with a point-and-click reflex thanks to the (almost) never disappointing AF (at least after it was – almost – repaired).
