Re: how?

After having climbed Mont Blanc in 1959, I was casually walking along the road south of Chamonix when I spotted a cow that provided a perfect foreground for composing this picture. It has won more praises than any other picture I have taken.

Less contrast please!

Yes, a beautiful photo, but it could certainly do with at lot less contrast.

Mont blanc is not visible here : would be better to attach to Dome du Gouter and Aiguille du Gouter

You are right but...

The actual summit is barely visible on the upper left along the ridge above the Dome du Gouter.

Re: Is it me

Perhaps so. This picture was taken in early August, 1959.
