Fauna et Flora of Alps.

(1600*1200 , 800*600 )
Again in Switzerland, I have make some photographs of the flowers and animals which I meet on the ways...
One crosses for example a very large variety of flowers, but also of the insects, butterflies, marmots, chamois and ibexes.
The majority of the photographs are taken into macro, and I have applied a small numerical correction on all photographs.

Rise towards Schreckhornhütte refuge.

Schreckhornhutte
(1600*1200 , 800*600 )
The rise towards this refuge from Grindelwald offers an imposing and exceptional panorama between the meadows and the glaciers. It is, in the my opinion, one of most beautiful the places of the Alps, which end in imposing Finsteraarhorn (4274m).

Crossing the Alps 2009.

Traversée des Alpes
(1600*1200 , 800*600 )
I had the opportunity of crossing the Alps from south to north Sunday 30 August 2009. I did the crossing from Sisteron to Martigny in Switzerland. The landscapes are beautiful discovered, I just regret having done it in just one day. A good week would have been better to discover more quietly each village and landscape!
