of Val Ferret
term of comparison, yours!
I was thinking to post an image including a series of the very different aspects that Grandes Jorasses assume in function of the point of view.
for an impressive alp mountain!!
Glad for the appreciation from the Lord of the Week on SP!
one of my favourites, beautifully captured. Cheers!
very kind of you, Gangolf!
Great composition: The lower mountains in the foreground give an idea of the huge mass of granite that makes up the Grandes Jorasses. I'm reminded of the feat of Whymper and his party, who in 1865 took 19 hours to reach Punta Whymper from Courmayeur and return.
You were the only left to thanks!
You are right , the contrast with the reliefs at his foot is just impressive from this point of view.
This picture of the east face also shows very well the famed Gervasutti route.
e impressionante bellezza :) bravo
The merit is mainly of the Grandes Jorasses and of the clouds, that waited still some time before hiding the summit.
Grazie del tuo apprezzamento: chissà quante ne hai anche tu in archivio di viste egualmente pregevoli !Stavo pensando di mandare una foto delle GJ con 4-6 differenti viste per mostare come cambia drasticamente il suo aspetto.
Mi farebbe ovviamente piacere un tuo contributo.
Thanks for your appreciation: I wonder how many views, as much valuable, do you have in your huge archives!
I was planning to send to SP an image containing 4-6 different view to show how the aspect of GJ changes drastically.
I would be glad, obviously, if you give a your contribution.
Both the photo and the peak!
thanks, Janne! And it's an aspect very different with respect to the more common points of view.
... abbiamo dato. Grande foto! Good luck ...
Thanks Maria Grazia!
After all, it's the same view that one enjoys from Fenêtre lake, without the wonderful reflection but from a very nearer point of view!
Caught in all its beauty. Nice impressive photo. Thanks
