Un beau métier que celui de pilote d'hélicoptère.
Ginnie Hart: That would be fun, I think, Martine!

Were you part of those supplies? It must have been quite a ride to go to the top of the mountain. Great doc shot! Looks like you were in the thick of the clouds.
Ginnie Hart: Our travel to and from the top was via cable car, Steven, but a helicopter ride would have been pure fun! The day was gorgeous with clouds floating in and out.
Super shot Ginnie, an exciting place to be !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank, and YES!
a great close up, Ginnie. it does not look like a lot of supplies (but i have no clue of the logistics involved).
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. I have no idea WHAT was being delivered but it's true that it wasn't as much as you'd think. I wish I knew how often it happens.

It looks dramatic, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: At first I thought there was an emergency rescue, Ray, so was quite relieved to see it was only supplies.

That looks like an expensive grocery delivery Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it does, Chad. I wonder how often it happens?

Lucky you to get so close Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Chris. We were there at just the right time!

He just happen to land when we "landed" on the top, Ginnie and I recognized the sound... I have seen some rescue helicopters on the slopes to take away unfortunate skiers and take them to hospital....
Great "man at work" picture.
Ginnie Hart: I remember how glad we were to find out this was NOT a rescue, Astrid, but just a drop-off. We were so lucky for our timing.
Fortunately, I read your notes because at first glance, I had thought of rescuing a hiker. Nice picture
Ginnie Hart: We were so glad it was NOT a rescue trip, Marie. Indeed.

What an observation - a wonderful, special photo!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. We were so lucky to have been there at just the right time to see it arrive and then leave.

een heerlijke opname Ginnie

ik dacht eerst aan een ongeluk, maar gelukkig was dit niet zo

alvast een fijn weekend gewenst
Ginnie Hart: We first thought it was a rescue, too, Willy, and were thrilled to find out it was only a drop-off of supplies! Have a great weekend.
You’re on top of the world, Ginnie. Can you get better than that?
Ginnie Hart: In that moment, Mary, we could have died and gone to heaven! smile
easier to fly in that ascend on foot
Ginnie Hart: You've got that right, Martin!
The background says how high up you were. You time things just right for this picture, in the old days they'd have had to carry things up on their backs no doubt.
Ginnie Hart: In the old days! I'm in awe of what "they" did in the old days, Brian! Indeed. Thanks.
WOW! What a story you have captured. friendship
Ginnie Hart: We were so lucky to have been there at just the right time, Ruthie!
Impressionnant !!
Ginnie Hart: It made our day, Claudine. smile
at the top of the world Ginnie... good action shot....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: On top of Germany's world, for sure, Peter. Thanks.
Such an exciting shot Ginnie.......before I read your blurb, I assumed it was mountain rescue! smile
Ginnie Hart: It was very exciting, Martin, indeed, and a huge relief when we discovered no one was in danger!
So misty and barren up there.
Did you see any St Bernard? smile
Ginnie Hart: No St. Bernards that WE saw, LC, but one wonders if there might be a mascot hiding out somewhere? smile

Very sharp action shot! The red/green catch is perfect!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bonnie. It definitely made our day.
