Photographer's Note

Ingalls family was not there but I found the little house on the prairie ! This house stands on a small hill over Geneste pass, 1,372 metres height. This pass links Picherande and Super-Besse ski station. It is the departure points for hill walkings to Puy de Sancy, the highest point in Auvergne (1,885 metres height). I think it may be too on the way of skiing tracks. The house dominates the valley and its shape top of the hill can be seen many kilometres around, so it is a very eye catching place. I drove a few times at the end of the day off this house, but I never could have good light conditions, because of the sun hiding behing mountains around. Sometimes I was just a few seconds too late ! But that evening I decided to come earlier to take the most of the sunset light and I could catch this great moment on photography ! I asked myself about the use of this house and had no response. It stands in the middle of prairies, no sign of life, all shutters closed but in very good state. Maybe a shelter for skiers on winter ?
