Do you know Wengen ?
Well I have booked another winter visit to Switzerland and 10 days up in the snow.
Last years attempts at photographing skiers were mediocre at best. i used my very best lens , the 200m f2.8 and a 2x extender but still could not get close enough. A week trudging about in the snow trying to find the perfect spot. Enjoyed myself but no keepers, no outstanding photos.
So back again in January and considering renting the 100-400 f 4.5-5.6 . I would love to rent the 400mm 2.8 but that would cost me £610...ouch.
So I have also upgraded my camera to the 5d mk111 so tracking should be easier and i have learnt a lot more in the last 12 months.
So sports photographers, does anyone know the Wengen/Jungfrau area ? Any pointers as to where to go and stand ? Last year i walked everywhere but may buy a lift pass this year. Where to stand ?
