  1. !!! All good photos. For me the 2nd and 3rd photo capture what skiing/boarding is all about, being outside in nature far away from cars and big cities.
  2. Sounds awesome! I really need to get back to Japan... Looking forward to see some good photos from you during the winter
  3. If I only had a month in Japan I would stay in one place to really get to know the good spots so I would be able to enjoy new snow as much as possible when it comes. Maybe i weekend in Tokyo in the beginning or end.
  4. Me and a friend did a similar trip last season, we ended up i Hakuba in the japanese alps. Can really recommend it!

  6. Our wonderful season in Hakuba has now come to an end (have been back in Sweden for three weeksnow). Finally I have had time to go through the photos from March and upload some of them. March was really good for us and we had alot of fun. I think we toured about 20 of 25-26 ski days. Anyways, here are the photos: Thats it! Hopefully we'll be back next year for some great skiing and good photo opportunitys.
  7. Thanks for the advice fattwins, we skied down to the waterfall 2 days in a row. Good snow! But you talked something about a cabin? We have climbed to 2361 before and haven't seen any house.
  8. Ok, then I say stick with them. Skied slush with my Katanas today. Worked like a charm.
  9. But I still have to be able to ski A 300 is a pretty big lens, nothing I would want to have hang loose outside the packpack, in lenscase or not =) K2 Photoglacier is a better photo backpack but I broke mine
  10. Thank you! I have thought about getting a 300/4IS or a 400/5.6, but I don't now. I really dont have any room left in the backpack. Dakine Sequence is simply too small With 3 lenses, 1 flash, 1 wireless flash trigger. And with all the normal BC stuff the backpack is totally full Originally Posted By: Nothing Out Of Bounds Sensational, Contender. Great pics are a combo of skiing talent and eye for composition. Anyone who has lugged a proper camera kit into the BC knows that its a bloody hard job and often thankless. Your pics truly showcase the Hakuba that most only he
  11. Nice meeting you too. This weekend was a truly great ski weekend. I've told Yoko to call your wife.
  12. Atleast 90% of those pictures are taken with a Canon 20D. A few is taken with a 40D and I think one is taken with a P&S Canon. Lenses used are a Sigma 70-200 and Sigma 10-20 for the jump pictures.
