Update 2021

Update 2021 décembre 24, 2021 For this 2021 year, I made the choice to discover a little bit more of mountains that I like: Belledonne.

One will find all kinds of atmospheres that make their […]

Special lights

Twilight The night was falling and the sea of clouds was breaking up. I could then see both the valley and the snowy summits. At the clouds boundary Clouds were covering the whole valley and most of the summits. At the clouds boundary, I could see the Rochers du Midi and even the Mont-Blanc. Undergrowth I think that bad weather suits undergrowths perfectly to undergrowths. They are the most beautiful with rain, snow, or even thick fog. Panoramic view of […]

In front of the titans

Vertical

Point des Cerces It is actually not this peak which has the top in the clouds, but the summit at the very right which is bathing in a beautiful light.
