Default Snow Gun In Action

On Friday I went on Skiing in the Alps and I had the opportunity to look very close at a Snow Gun in action.
Here's a serie of shots.

Overview :



Front View (with the help of the flash) :



Rear View (with Flash as well. Propellers look like being steady cause shutter speed was 1/184 : next time I'll take care of it ) :



Front Left View :



A Detailed View ( by using flash ) :



P.S. :
- automatic levels and contrast in most cases.
- in some of them levels have been corrected manually
- in some shots selective saturation of yellow and cyan colors
- some brun tool and sharp tool brushstrokes here and there

Good exposure and color saturations, particularly with the flash.

cool! (no pun intended)

They build those things right by where I work... I see a bunch of the finished ones outside but I've never seen one in action...

Very well-done photos, and an interesting machine, too.

Great series. The saturation is very good and Nikon like, if you get my point. I like the last one best
Good work.

great pics!
wasn't it dangerous for the cam because of the snow to take the shots? (especially the front shot)

This proves that he must be very, very light on his feet!

Okay, Sergio, did you visit the Alps to ski or was it to take these excellent photos?

Thanx for your appreciations.

Oh, no, even if it may seem so.
The throwing was so strong ( 10-20 meters ) that below the snowgun it was completly dry.

You can get evidence of it in the orange part of the first shot.

Barbara, I've been on the slopes from 9:50 to 16:00 : enough to enjoy both things

Great photos! We don't get much snow in Birmingham Alabama, so last year a local snow maker came over and made snow for my Grandson. His equipment is not quite as large, but he did put down 7" of snow in my front yard. I wish he had the big yellow machine!
