Getting wet feet
An essential element of our mountains is water that is presented here in all its forms.
The first cold, the first snow give a wintry aspect to the mountains. However, all of this is often ephemeral.
Traditional view of the Lac Guichard
The Lac Guichard is famous for its view of the Aiguilles d'Arves. If you go through the Col de la Croix de Fer, I advise you to stop to contemple it.
Panoramic view from the Lac Noir
The view of La Meije is absolutely awesome from the Lac Noir and the Plateau d'Emparis. It is especially true at sunset when the glowing light illuminates the very top of the mountains.
The spring soft green suits perfectly to the torrents meltwater. And Chartreuse becomes green. Is that the secret?
Water of the Doménon
This automn, cold settled Belledonne. The water of the Lacs des Doménon flowed through many ice sculptures. An incredible sight !
Big blocks of ice, or blocks of snow, whatever they were, were still immersed into the lake, not fully melted. A sight that can be compared to the polar pack ice.
Automn leaves, not taken away by the wind, but carried away by the torrent, give a special look to this landscape.
Film of water
The Alloix torrent is famous for its cascades. A thin, sometimes steep, path gives access to one of them.
Cascade of Saint-Même
Extreme temperatures and time ended up taking effect. And the cascade of Saint-Même freezing. Year after year, those conditions are rarer and rarer.
Reflection in the Lac Merlat
Nature is a true artist. A bit of water, a bit of wind, and here is a realistic painting.
Despite the snow melting, lakes experienced difficulties to fill. I had never seen the Lacs Robert so empty.
The water from the mountains
Plentiful, the water from the mountains rolled down Vercors to swell the Isère river few meters lower.
The Pissou cascade during winter
Following coldness and snowfalls, the Pissou cascade is unrecognizable
Early morning tranquility
What a pleasure to enjoy the early morning tranquility ! This morning, the water of the Lac Guichard was so still. A perfect mirror.
