An elderly German skier tripped and fell to his death in northern Italy as he tried to take a photo of the mountain scenery.
The 62-year-old man was killed in the Fiemme valley in northern Italy's Dolomites late on Wednesday when he plummeted 200 metres into a ravine.
Mountain rescue teams reached the scene of the accident and winched the man up on to a helicopter but he was pronounced dead.
The man had been standing beside a black run at Cima Pala di Santa with his camera around his neck when he apparently lost his balance.
