Tour du Mont Blanc, Day Three

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 1 January 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

It is a new year, and I am glad to be back at Aminus. I have missed you all and have missed my daily photos here, but for lots of reasons (hey, life sometimes gets in the way!) I have been a bit distracted from my photography.

This image was made in August when my husband and I were on our 11 day trek around Mt. Blanc. It is the view which greeted us when we crossed the Col du Bonhomme after climbing up 4,318 feet from the village of Les Contamines. Yes, it was hard!

I have promised my husband that I would make a book of our journey, so I find myself back into these files, which is a good thing, because it takes me back again to what was, so far, one of the most amazing journeys of my life.

I hope to be able to post here more regularly in the new year. That is, at least, my intention!

Happy New Year to you all. I am glad to be back in community here.

Gorgeous composition, lovely light, and well-exposed as usual for you Barbara. A book is a wonderful way to remember your journey for years to come.
