Photographer's Note

Even sight of the valley of "Val d'Arly - Mont-Blanc" (Savoy) from the shot "Stormy Weather", but this time, bathed in the morning sun. We are here at a little lower altitude.

This time, the photo is taken July 14, 2004 to 8h00 AM to show the 1st and last day of good weather during my stay in Savoy. Indeed, it is now time to take the road to join Dijon. Too bad, it will be for a next time (surely this winter).

Finally, don't forget : In mountain, it is necessary to be patient and to adapt oneself to the weather. If weather is not fine, it's not worth taking one's boots, ropes, or crampons : The cold weather and especially the lack of visibility at high altitude will have sooner or later fatally the upper hand. Therefore, it is better to wait wisely than the weather is clement even if coming back empty-handed.

Song Title : Good Morning Starshine, from musical movie “Hair” (1979).
