The glacier Bossons, well-developed, 7km lenght, goes down from the Mont-Blanc to the Valley of Chamonix at 1200m. The ice goes down 180m per year. Its water flows in the Arve river.

The Mont-Blanc : 4808m, was first conquered the 8 August 1786 by Jacques Balmat and Michel-Gabriel Paccard !

The historic altitude of Mont-Blanc was 4807m, in 2001 the new altitude was 4810m and the last of 2003 is now 4808m...


This photo was taken from the Brévent with the tiny Ixus ;-)

Very beautiful composition Christian,
I like the depth in it, very great colours, very nice job

What a place. This is a nice landscape, Christian. The glasier is breathtaking. One can even see the glare of the snow so commonly reffered too. TFS.

Great shot. I remember this place well while in France. As I drove into this region looking for Mont-Blanc the sun was reflecting of the peak and it looked almost heavenly. Bravo.

Fantastic view, it's hard to appreciate the scale of this, they look enormous. Very nice work Christian.

Superbe photo du plus connu de nos sommets.
La composition et les couleurs sont magnifiques.
Bien vu.

Amazing photo, this ones should be alowed in "huge panoramic format" :)
You had a beautiful day, the colours are very pleasant.

Very delicate view you show us here Christian and nice to see that it is not the size of the camera that make the pictures. I think you did a great job here with all the snow and not burning it all - really it is a very difficult task. Very good dof with lots of details all over the picture.

Postcard perfect! And what a view!!! You have shown the glacier in wonderful detail and the composition with only 1/3 sky is just right!
