Les Pyrénées (Background/Wallpaper)
I spent an eventful week snoboarding in Andorra with my family. We chose Vallnord as our destination, since it is a magnificent setting for all winter sports. The weather was not the best for photography ranging from heavy snowfalls, 80 cm in one night, to rain and on one day the sun was shining, which made the slopes more crowded. This image was taken on the second night during the heavy snowfall just before sunset. It is difficult to convey the scale, but standing in the valley at the altitude of ~1400 meters the top of the mountain stands somewhere around 2400 meters tall. I highly recommend Andorra as your destination instead of Alps if you like skiing, snowboarding or mountain climbing. It is much more affordable due to the low value added tax and the scenery will just take your breath away.
