Photographer's Note

It's never to late to finally release a picture of my home country ! It shows the glacier coming from the Petit-Combin (hidden on the right), a 3663 meters high peak where my mates and I were dropped by helicopter. After enjoying the unspoiled snow field on the (hidden) upper part of the glacier, we reached the landscape shown on the shot, right at the corner of the shade of the Combin-de-Corbassière (3715m. a.s.l.), the peak on the left. Then we skied down at the foot of this mountain, and crossed to the left (out of the picture) to reach the Corbassière Glacier where I was standing while taking this picture. A great but very tiring day in the Swiss Alps !
