Across the world there’s been crazy weather these past few weeks. But in the Swiss and French Alps it has been business as usual this winter. Snow, sunshine, alpine sport and spectacular scenery. I took these shots while travelling in Verbier and Chamonix, two of the world’s iconic mountain towns, in the second half of January. Get there of you can. And now, unfortunately, it’s back to work…
