Picture of the Day – August 15, 2010
Photograph by Alexandre Deschaumes
From the Photographer: This is a View from the ‘Refuge du Couvercle’ 2700 meters towards “Mont Blanc” in a very inspiring atmosphere. The clouds were moving very fast … At this moment I felt it was an interesting composition with all the clouds embracing the scene… and creating a very dramatic light on the “Devil’s peak” on the left.
Mont Blanc or Monte Bianco (French and Italian, respectively, meaning “White Mountain”) is the highest mountain in the Alps, Western Europe and the European Union. It rises 4,810.45 m (15,782 ft) above sea level and is ranked 11th in the world in topographic prominence. It is also sometimes known as “La Dame Blanche” (French for “The White Lady”).
