All around town folks like me are eagerly awaiting the start of another ski season.  I snapped this photo a few year's ago of a snowboarder and a skier cuddling together on a snowy chairlift ride at the Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana.<br />

Photography tip:  When you want to show snow flakes falling try to shoot at your widest aperature and include some dark colored objects in your scene.  Shooting at a wide open aperature keeps the flakes from overwhelming your subject since the human eye is always attracted to the crispest areas of an image.Likewise, white snow does not stand out well against more white snow but it becomes quite noticeable against a darker backdrop like my snowboarder's jacket or the chairlift tower.
