I was just thinking that they looked rather familiar, then I read the text at the top again. I worked on those mountains in a restaurant one winter, the best thing was waking up on the mountain and getting to the good light before everyone else. Great Shots!
Too much gear, too little space.

good for you, I envy you a little bit  ;)

Not wanting to be cruel here, but as one of my teachers (the cruel one!) in photo school would say: "it's called BLACK&WHITE, so where's the WHITE?" meaning the way your 'prints' show up on my monitor (and I try hard to keep it calibrated...) they are a bit of the grey variety! Can I ask how you 'turned them B&W (in camera, PS?)
Thanks for posting!

No no, it's totaly ok, that was main issue that was bugging me about these shots. I processed them in Lightroom and Photoshop and I liked them more this way, so let's say it was intention (maybe not good one  ;D )
