Wild side of the ski mountaineering world cup circuit – Melanie Bernier

Favourite Moments photography contest 

Bring your Favourite Moment photo printed on 8x 11 paper to be mounted on our gallery wall.  Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite so while the image might be crooked, over exposed or out of focus, the magic of the moment captured transcends.  You will have space to mount a second optional sheet of text immediately below your image to explain the what when where and why, and a bit about you if you wish.
