Là-haut II

“Là-haut II”, Grand-Ballon, Alsace, 2010.

When I see the sea of clouds like this, I imagine how was the region 30M years ago, when there was a sea in what is today the plain of Alsace.

With the sea of clouds, an ephemeral sea come back, from which emerge only some islands: among them the Großer Belchen is easily identifiable, with the radar of the Area Control Centre of Reims on the top of its summit.

In the background you can see the Alps, approximately distant from 200km. The two summits separated by a big space in the centre are easily recognizable and give a landmark: on the left you’ve the Schreckhorn and the Lauteraarhorn and later the Wetterhörner; on the right it’s the Finsteraarhorn and later the Eiger, the Mönsch and the Jungfrau.

Tools and exifs:

  • Canon EOS 450D + Canon 18-55mm IS
  • 55mm
  • 1/2500 s.
  • f/8
  • ISO 200
