Photographer's Note

View on the Chaîne des Puys near Clermont-Ferrand in Auvergne in central France. The Chaîne des Puys is a former volcanic range. It is 45 kilometres long and 3 to 5 kilometres wide from the north to south. The range has about 80 volcanos, all of them are extinct. The oldest eruptions are dated 95,000 years. But the most recent are only 8,000 years old, which makes the scientists think the volcanos could wake up ! The highest point of the range is the famous Puy de Dôme, 1,465 metres height. I took this picture from its summit.
