Bernie Rosow skiing on Mammoth Mountain enjoying some wind buff, chalky snow. This unique snow in combination with the wind is very photogenic, especially in early winter when we shot this because the sun is low in the sky. Little rays of light just barely kiss the slope creating very dramatic and moody images. It's the combination of all these factors and Bernie's dynamic skiing allowed us to capture this unique image of this ghost like figure.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
