The Mountains of France
The end of this year had a nice surprise, a week in the French mountains near Saint Gervais in the Mont Blanc region. An email I received, offered a return trip out to these mountains with food, board and travel all included for quite a good price. How could I resist? Passport, snowboard, boots and camera equipment packed, off to Dover I went to meet up with a coach. The trip is another article but this one is focusing on some amazing photographs of the Alps I took through the week.
These photos were shot on a small tripod which I was carrying around while skiing and snowboarding. Luckily I did not fall over. One thing I did learn from this trip is to take a waterproof camera bag. Not the rucksack but these plastic bags that go over the camera but have a lens opening so photos can be taken. After I got back I popped into my local camera shop and they cost just five pounds. Definitely worth having.
