One of the routes leading up to top of 'Le Puy Mary' in the Auvergne region of France. It's an old volcano with a summit at 1,783 metres which is lost in the clouds on this photo.

A narrow ridge; I like that fog crawling in to the scenery.

France is like a second home for you right ?

A nice region to hike (went in the region for winterclass)
I really like how you handle the B&W

@Pouhou: Hi wife's family all live in France which is where we met 25 years ago in Paris when I was working there during my summer vacations from architectural studies. We often go to France on holiday - this year we had a week on the beach on the Ile de Re which our two kids really liked then 3/4 days here in the Auvergne visiting family, then back to Paris for a few days (family again)

Placid and sober, yet I love it alot... the interaction between the substance of rock, form of grass, tone of clouds is just wonderful.
