Spectacular Sunset

Spectacular Sunset Above a huge Cloud Carpet covering the complete Maurienne Valley. Below the clouds lays the village of Saint Jean de Maurienne.

View is towards the South-West from Le Marqies (just SE of St Francois Longchamps).

The main peak in the left is Pic de L'Etendard (3478m) The peaks at right are part of the ''Chaine de Belledonne''
