    I'm going to an Instructor event (Inter Tele) in Cervinia in a couple of weeks and to answer all of the questions I get I'm going to do an indoor presentation on skiing in Australia. If any of you like to share a photo you have of something which you thinks sums up skiing in Australia you'd be happy for me to use could you post it in this thread and I'll PM you to get a high res copy.

    Thanks!

    Cheers.
    Mary's Slide and surrounding extreme zone at Hotham on beautiful bluebird day 2015.
    I found it in my small phone photo collection.
    Taken on my Nokia phone on great alpine road, from memory just downhill from top of davenport access trail.
    There is a spot where I was able to frame the 2 closer treed ridges to be just in the right location with the majestic MS at rear.
    enjoy

    Well no actually, because here's the crop from my flickr and below it the original (taken 18/7/14 btw). If you took it, then i'd like to know how the photo uncropped itself and found a way into my camera.

    Hey Endless , dont get your knickers caught in a knot.
    There are probably thousands of people that have taken similar set pics.
    All I know is that I took mine and am happy to share it. I am not in the business of cropping and claiming other peoples photos.
    For your information ,if you look carefully at mine you can see skiers and no clouds, that differs to yours.
    Maybe someone with more time to spare than myself, could start another thread...spot the difference between the 2 pics.
    :)

    I'm not getting my knickers in a knot. I just don't like people lying.

    They are most definitely NOT different pics. I know, because I took it. You downloaded it from twitter.

    Here's the original tweet. Go take a look at the Mt Hotham twitter account on the 19th of July 2014 if you don't believe me.



    Here's your photo:

    This is my tweet (which was re-tweeted by Mt Hotham, which is obviously where you got it from)

    These are NOT the same photo. The skiers are in different positions. The first photo is taken later as the skiers are further down the slope.

    Are you all for real?




    Look at these 2 photos.



    The first one is cookie mans alleged photo and the second one is my twitter photo.

    right click and check the source of each if you doubt me

    Not identical, but less than a second apart, from a bloke standing next to me. Stuff happens.

    These two are different photos... But the pic @Endless_Winter posted on twitter is the exact same as the one @cookieman is claiming to own.

    I didn't know they were out and about during peak season.
