Running and jumping this way and that, walking until you’re out of breath, and still time to pose for photos!
I never take where I live for granted. How could I when it looks like this?
This isn’t actually our house but it is the view on a short walk from our doorstep.
A walk near Uriage les Bains in Isere. We were hoping to find truffles but found some amazing colours instead.
St Gervais thermal park has a lovely river running through with quite a few resident Dippers. I went down today with the intention of getting shots of them under the water but only managed to get them above. Still, at least I can look forward to going back and trying again!
Last weekend we had a lovely stroll up Mont Colombier in the Bauges Massif near Chambery. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.
The dog that isn’t Bruno is a Maremmano; he lives up on the hill to look after the herd of Goats. He spotted us from miles away and erupted in to a frenzy of barking. The closer we got, the calmer he got and as we passed him he was only too happy to let us walk by – clearly our names were on his guest list after all!
Not far from our house is a beautiful little village of summer huts which makes for a lovely walk. Last weekend we packed the stove and wandered up for a very enjoyable cup of tea among the mountains.
I have been experimenting with this “black & white with a bit of colour” technique recently.These ones are interesting enough but I guess it is something that shouldn’t be overused.
On Sunday we skinned up to the top of Plaine Joux ski station, looking across to Megeve and skied down just after the pistes had closed to the paying punters. We were accompanied by an increasingly beautiful sunset and our fun-loving dog Bruno – not a bad way to spend an evening!
The snow has arrived and the garden birds are making full use of our feeders!
