This picture I made it to 3842m (Aiguille du Midi) and surprised,which is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps.

The cable car to the summit, the Téléphérique de l'Aiguille du Midi, was built in 1955 and held the title of the world's highest cable car for about two decades. It still holds the record as the highest vertical ascent cable car in the world, from 1035m to 3842m. It travels from Chamonix to the top of the Aiguille du Midi – an altitude gain of over 2,800 m – in 20 minutes.
The name "Aiguille du Midi" translates literally as "needle of midday". It is so called as the sun sits directly over the peak at noon, when viewed from Chamonix.

Hi Adrian,

A beautiful mountain landscape. The colors and details are wonderful and I love the patterns the snow makes on the mountains. I can just imagine the spectacular views one sees from that height.


Hi Adrian,
A nice nice aerial view of this snow filled mountain. Excellent composition with a very good view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Wow, this is a great shot! I love the snow on the mountains.

Magnificent landscape.
I liked POV, exposure and composition a lot.

Hi Adrian !
Frumoasa panorama a muntilor.
O zi buna,

Hi Adrian, A wonderful wide angle alpine view. It is interesting to read your notes about the way to get up to that height. As a "tramper" in my youth in NZ, we saw some views from high, but nothing as spectacular as this. The clarity is excellent. TFS. Murray.

Hello Adrian !
What a great picture ! These mountains are really impressive and mejestic, must have been such a great moment for you to stand there and watch this - I bet you feel very small, compared to these beauties... Wonderfully composed, with excellent details throughout the whole picture - very well done !

Hallo, Adrian,
Great work! I can image an air without oxygen there. Superb colours, wonderful sharpness! My congratulations!

Hi Adrin, a fine winter landscape capture from these magnificent summits with wonderful composition.
TFS and cheers,

Ciao Adrian,
una visione mozzafiato di queste meravigliose montagne, fantastico contrasto fra le rocce scure e i pendii innevati, splendida luce e splendida composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

nice landscape, TFS Ori

Hi Adrian,
Splendid shot! I can imagine that, at this altitude, you were a bit short of breath. I was even higher last year in the Altiplano of Peru at 4500 m...no snow, because it's too dry there, but both places take your breath away...from the sheer beauty. TFS

Bonjour Adrian,
Chamonix ne se trouve pas dans la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, mais dans la région Rhône-Alpes.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Dear Adrian,
A beautiful view - beautifully presented.

I am glad, you did not try to "photoshop" the haze over the alps in the back ground but left it the way you saw the mountains.

It always enchants me, how the same view changes every five minutes - according to the changing sun - and how the the wind travels.

You were lucky, to catch such a sunny, cloudless day in January...
Enjoy the rest of your week-end,

Hi Adrian

What a wonderful landscape of the French Alps.
The air up there must be really thin.
Wouldn't like to play sport that high up.

I thought your note would explain how you climbed up here with your camera, but no such luck.

Details are sharp and clear and an excellent landscape:)
Well done and TFS

Kind Regards

Hi Adrian
Excellent photogarphy,
white, contrast, sharpen, deep is perfect.

Hello Adrian,
Great panorama from summit. Excellent details & sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

Namaste adrian,
you have captured this breathtaking shot very well. Like your light control and the high POV which acts well here. Sharpness and clarity are really great
