Here are a few teaser shots from my recent ski trip to the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. We had five feet of snow fall on us over the course of seven days, which of course meant endless big powder turns and some VERY DEEP conditions!

I used my new Nikon D300 exclusively during the trip with excellent results. The D300 picks up right where the D200 left off, as a rugged, dependable, professional quality camera that is well suited to action and adventure photography. The D300’s new 51 area 3D focus tracking worked well locking onto skiers at 6 frames per second, giving me the ability to shoot impressive bursts of photos, such as the series of 18 shots below.

Stay tuned for more photos from this trip and more of my personal reviews of the Nikon D300…
