Description : This picture was made from the famous lake "Lac Blanc" at 2352m in the massif of "Aiguilles Rouges", notice the water color coming from molten snow and chemical reaction with the ground.
In July we could still find a few snow going down into this little lake, but in August with sun...
Behind the valley of Chamonix, you can see the "Aiguille Verte" at 4122m on the left, the big & old glacier "Mer de Glace" in the center and the "Aiguilles de Chamonix" on the right.
Fot tourists it is a nice place above Chamonix, in french Alps, where you are able to see eternal snow.
Photo : resized and framed in 800x600 for TN. No modification.
Camera IXUS 400 - Iso 100 - Focal 36mm - Mode auto - Speed 1/640 - f7.1 - No tripod.
Note : this picture need more space, if you could see it on 30x40cm photopaper in my chalet, it is pleasure for eyes ;-)

Hello Christian,

Excellent landscape scene. Composition is great and the colors are very nice. Well done on the exposure. So, the ice-river in the middle is an actual glacier? Is that your house btw? ;) The bg is a bit hazy, but nothing serious. TFS!


Wow, Wow, Wow! What a superb photo! I can't believe it! Everything is just perfect! Very deep DOf, everything is sharply in focus. An interesting focal point in just the right place, lits of depth and good colours in the background, not too hazy.

Hi Christian,
A beautiful shot.
You must have taken a long walk to get this shot. Nice composition.

Quelle belle carte postale !
Magnifique point de vue
TFS, Laurent

Hi Taz, what a beautiful scene, all those mountains and shapes and colours. Wonderful. And those buildings - are they permanent homes ot winter or summer chalets? And would you skate on the water in winter? Just great. Well done and TFS.

Christian, No time this am to comment, but well deserved :-)

Stunning view, Christian!
Excellent composition and colour.

Incredible and majestic beauty, Christian!

Excellent composition, details, colors, POV, DOF, and lighting.

Congratulations on this very fine posting.


Lovely shot Christian!
This view with the lake is very beautiful, BG with mountain tops is amazing just like the colour of the water.
I like the photo very much.

Hi Christian... this is just beautiful. The mountains are clearly shown. I have a terrible time with getting haze around my mountain shots... this is inspirational :-) Makes me want to visit! Thanks for sharing such an amazing place!

Hello Christian, it is a very imposing landscape. It's a beatiful scene. What is the hut? Is it a camp? Does anything live in the lake? Great shot.

Bonjour Christian, j'espere que vous avez passé de bonnes vacances. Votre photo des Alpes avec ce joli lac en premier plan est superbe. Il vaut mieux que cela ne soit pas votre maison !! Félicitations Didier.

Christian, this is very beautiful. Excellent and vivid shades of blue, great composition and a privileged pov.

A breathtaking view.

Hi Christian,
This is one of those shots that fits in my WOW! comments when first viewed. That is some beautiful and breathtaking scenery.
A really perfect shot all around.

Bonjour Christian.
Magnifique! On s'y croirait. Très bonne impression de relief entre le Lac Blanc et l'arrière plan de montagnes. La lumière, qui écrase un peu les couleurs, est bien celle de l'été, forte et aveuglante. Le rendu de cette situation est excellent. Une bouffée de bon air, malgré ce que disent les opposants au tunnel.

Bonsoir Christian,
Merci de nous offrir ce beau paysage montagneux et d'en faire la description, j'aime particulièrement la petite maisonnette près du lac au fait à quoi sert elle ?
Très beau point de vue et comme toujours une composition impeccable.

Merci et à bientôt :-)

What a brilliant postcard! The scenary is stunning! I wish I was there!

Thanks you for posting this beauty.


Magnificent view, Christian. The color of the water is unusual - are you sure it's because of the snow? The mountains and s-curve of the glacier are spectacular. Thanks for sharing this one.

Bonjour Christian,
Votre photo est magnifique. Les Alpes françaises offre un spectacle grandiose! Très beau point de vue et superbes couleurs. Merci pour le partage!

Magnificent capture Christian and what an awesome view man. Composition is perfect and I love the depth to this scene. Sharpness is superb and your POV is perfect. This brings back good memory's of this region for me Christian. 7/10 Very well done. Iv done a WS with a little PP.

Excellent view, Christian!
Nice composition, exposure.
Everything is so sharp.

Une image a mon gout bien presentée car un point fort pârfaitement net sur ce lac Blanc avec cette cabane qui ajoute une sacrée touche finale. Cette photo presentée en trois plans bien distingts(Lac,montagne,ciel) se compose en 1/3 qui a mes yeux est une belle réalisation technique.
Bravo Christian j'aime bien ce type de scene ;-)

Magnifique vue ! Et quel panorama sur place j'imagine.
Superbe photo. J'apprécie beaucoup en tant que trekeur.
Ces époustouflantes vues sont le salaire gartifiant des heures de marche qui mênent à se genre de destination.
Peut être ma prochaine destination ?...

Merci de partager

Bonjour Christian,
Superbe photo, magnifique paysage, on a envie d'y aller!

Hi Christian,
What a perfect landscape you produced here. I like sharpness and volours. Absolute fantastic composition, especially the little house with the tiny people around gives this photo an extra dimension.Very well done!
Regards, Ruud

Very nice and interesting photos. Thank You. The mountains are my love. Bye Aga

Hi Christian,
It is beautiful. Very nice composition with lake and mountain cottage on the foreground and beautiful mountains backgound. Like the valley between. I gives depth. Good colors.

I like your photographies, but this in special, has great interest, harmony chromatic and a perfect one and balanced composition

Hello Christian, wonderful landscape. At first I thought this shot was taken in The Andes. Love the point of view. It has so much depth, it almost looks like a 3D shot. Perfect exposure! And as you said: a real pleasure for the eyes. Thanks for sharing. Gabriel

Avesome scene, Christian!
Great POV and compo, I love expressive mountains on the BG, and air perspective is beautiful! Do you used UV-filter to avoid strong foggy effect?
Best wishes,

incredible nature. Good work Christian!

I am surprised to find such a beauty and have not seen it before.
This is a breathtakins scenary. Impressing, TFS.
Best regard, Felipe.

bonjour Christian
