Photographer's Note

A view of the pyramids of Euseigne and the Val d' Herens. The view goes on up to the city of Sion and mountains still covered with snow of Bernese Alps.
The "cheminées de fées") or pyramids of Euseigne are high of about twenty meters and constitute an extraordinary work of the nature.
They formed, during the millenniums, following the last glaciation.
Constituted by moraines which settled when the glaciers of the valleys of Hérémence and Hérens invaded the region, these glacial deposits are an accumulation of rocks coated with sand and with clay.
