Taking time to watch snowmelt is sometimes necessary, even when night has come, and even more when night is magnificent.

Snowstorm in Chartreuse

Snowstorm in Chartreuse

Some days, being outside is not the place to be. Finding the path in a snowstorm becomes difficult. Every landmark disappears in a white vastness. Wind, cold, snow make things even more complex.

I am not the only one who contemplates sunsets and gets back home late.

The Grand Charnier d’Allevard

The Grand Charnier d’Allevard

Between sunset and night, there is this special moment called blue hour. If you like blue, you may enjoy it most probably. What you need is just an amazing landscape like this stunning view on the Grand Charnier d’Allevard.

The first heavy snowfall brutally transformed autumn to winter. Combined with the sea of clouds and sunset, it was a perfect moment.

I must admit that autumn is one of my favorite seasons. Mountains are covered by lots of different colours. Landscapes become then magical.

The view on some major summits is just gorgeous. Can you see the Rocher Badon, the Rocher Blanc, the Pyramide, the Grandes Rousses and even the Mont-Blanc ?

Can you believe it ? This photo is rather misleading. Wind and cold are really present. With wind blowing, with a drilled mattress, a terrible night is coming. Can’t wait for the sun to heat.

The White Lake

Dominated by the Grand Pic de Belledonne, the White Lake is famous for its colour. In this picture, It is hesitating between a summer dress code and a winter one.

Do you recognize the Pyramide, the Belle Etoile and north of Belledonne ?

In the distance, the Mont-Blanc, the Aiguilles d’Arves and La Meije begrudge the splendour of Belledonne.

In some early mornings, everything is more beautiful: dawn, sea of clouds and mountains of course.

Pointe Rognier and Mont-Blanc
