Last week we went up to the Col de la Forclaz, a 1450m mountain overlooking Lake Annecy in the Haute Savoie region of France. For those of you who are geographically challenged, it’s in eastern France less than an hour southwest of Geneva, Switzerland, in the French alps. This particular mountain is well known for its paragliding. However, we were just visiting for lunch and the view —  and what a view! It was a  beautiful day, but rather hazy so I wasn’t sure how my images would come out. As it happened, better than I’d expected. These are just a handful of them…while I’m away I don’t have time to process all of them, and I’m not sure how the colours are without my calibrated display, which I don’t have here.

    • Thanks. 😊 The challenge with such an iconic view is to capture something that hasn’t been repeated over and over, and by better photographers with better gear. I decided to just go for the classic for my own purposes and capture a few that I liked better but with no identifying features…and I just loved the clouds! I appreciate your comments. 😊
