Photographer's Note

I haven't put any photos on this site for a few years, but I have some time to myself now, and I have bought a new camera since my last post.

This is the view from the famous Aiguille du Midi at Chamonix, looking towards the Gran Paradiso (the high point on the horizon) in Italy. Viewing conditions were perfect on this morning, and the valleys of the Italian Alps were full of cloud. The view would have looked like this 20,000 years ago, except that ice would have filled the valleys instead of cloud. A cable car takes people up to this point, perched on the top of a rock spire 3800 m high: breath-taking in every sense.
