Talk about socked in! :

My guess is that if there really is a skier in your still photo, its this bunch of pixels up near the top edge of the frame made "visible" by expanding the histogram and a bit of artistic license).

OTOH, it sure doesn't look like 60 degrees tho, so maybe this is like those grainy, blurred images of ghosts taken with night vision scopes that they always show on those psuedo-science TV shows.

Thanks for the fun pix and movies. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

PS - I bet your camera's autofocus system just loves high contrast scenes like these.

I thought I spotted the skier then I scrolled down and realized it was only a spot on my monitor. It was neat because the skier moved down hill as I scrolled, but the skier had poor form and was making a very fast, straight run.

Geez, it was kinda like playing "Where's Waldo out there, eh?

It's not a sustained 60 degrees but a good 50-75 ft at the entrance was. :

And yes that was an actual picture of the hill just before the first person in the group became visible.

Ah, but can you ski zero vis?

Not me, guys.

Big thanks to everybody who pulled the video straw and helped out with that stuff at the Academy!

That includes Dave Chan, of course.
