Seeing Double in the Dolomites

Seeing Double in the Dolomites

This Christmas I was extremely happy to receive a brand new camera as a special present and I have been experimenting with it ever since.

Last week I brought it for its inaugural visit to the snowy Dolomites in northern Italy. I quickly discovered that when shooting moving figures in brightly back-lit conditions – snow, for example – my camera is capable of seeing double as it takes multiple shots.

I found these photographs quite interesting and amusing and thought I would share them with you and ask for your comments. I assure you, they have nothing whatsoever to do with my consumption of Pear Williams!

They were taken at the Ski Trek 2015 races at Sesto, in the Sud Tirol.

Perhaps I should read the instruction manual…………………

My Settimana Bianca blog is almost ready to publish, so watch this space.

  1. These photos are fab! If you put it on a slower speed do you get lots of repeats?! You could end up with ribbons of skiers coming down the slope!! And the Dolomites look very inviting – they’re on my wish list so I look forward to your settimana bianca post! Grazie mille!

  2. Thank you! When the camera is on automatic and the scene is brightly back-lit, it takes multiple images. I already knew this, but I hadn’t photographed any moving figures prior to visiting Sud Tirol. I was amazed when I saw them!
