@FranJurga writes: It's one of the most unusual and most photo-friendly events in the world. It happens every winter in Saint-Moritz, Switzerland and, one of these years, I will be there to see it for myself.

 

It's the Polo World Cup--in the snow, and this lovely photo shoot in black and white catches the magic beautifully. Thanks to La Cavalière masquée for sharing the richness of this event.
