French Alps

September — 2019

When visiting the French Alps, we set up our home base around Chamonix & Argentière. My wife and I spent a week hiking by the Mont Blanc Massif, enjoying the endless alpine meadows, steep climbs and the many Ibex we saw on the trails.

A mountain lake called “Lac Blanc” had been on my must-see list for a very long time and now I was finally there to see and photograph it. It took us two days to hike from our home base to the lake. Our route was part of the “Tour Du Mont Blanc”, a 170km trail with more than 10.000 meters of elevation. That will be for another trip.
