Scene of a sunset made minutes after the picture Col du Joly in Spring which is a scene almost identical but in which the fog is present and there is snow on the top front of the pond. It was a time when the landscape was changing every second. The Col du Joly is facing Mont Blanc in the valley of Hauteluce (Beaufortain, Savoie).
It’s spring, but winter always leaves traces on the mountain tops. On this picture you can see le Roc du Vent, a mountain in the Beaufortain valley above the Roselend dam, we can see the rock mass in a fleeting ray of light after the storm, amid dark and light mood. Photographed in May 2011.
Panorama made from le Col du Grand Colombier (mountain pass) in Savoie above Culoz. By this sunny day, you can see the canal du Rhône and le Bourget lake (the largest natural lake in France), Chautagne forest and Aix les Bains. Further background on the left, you can also see Le Mont Blanc. Panorama created in August 2010.
