“Station”, Petit Ballon, Alsace, 2014.

The station at the top of the Petit Ballon, which is both a meteorological station and a UHF relay mast.

Due to harsh condition at the top of the mountain, the whole station or some components are often offline. Last time I’ve heard about it, the camera was toasted by a thunderstorm and the anemometer last transmission was 180kph before it got blown off.

Tools and exifs:

  • Canon EOS 450D + Samyang 14mm f/2.8
  • 14mm
  • 1/125 s.
  • f/8
  • ISO 100
