Travel Throwback - Snowboarding Silence

So a couple of years ago before I tore my ACL, I went with a couple of friends from Falmouth University on a snowboarding trip to Val d'isere in France. It was an amazing 10 days of pure snowboarding fun and a few nights of partying to boot. Over the duration of the trip, of course I took loads of photos but back then technology was not as reliable as it is today and I remember everyones camera's not working in the -16 degrees temperatures out on the pistes, which is why I love the two images below, they were taken on my old 1970's Pentax Asahi film camera and they capture a sort of silence and beauty about boarding off piste with friends.

I am still in the process of re-scanning these negatives and will share more with you soon, also joining up with the lovely Travel Tuesday linky over on The Compass Rose

  1. Love and adore these photos so much! I love the quality of them and just takes me aback to snowboarding with my friends and family in the alps when I was a teen. Miss those days. We should do a snowboarding blate! ;) Thank you for linking up with Belinda and I for Travel Tuesday! I hope you link up again next week.
