Slapped by the Wind by RobertoBertero Slapped by the Wind by RobertoBertero

Here you can see part of the marvelous Aiguilles de Chamonix (Mont Blanc massif), in the exact moment when a turbulence began to set free a few summits, revealing a magic world completely encrusted in ice.
A view that does not happen every day, even in winter, because of the very vertical walls.

This is the light just before sunset. I would say the best one for this kind of subject, since a warmer light would have somehow interfered with the glacial atmosphere.

From left to right: Aiguille de Blaitière (3.522 m), Dent du Caiman (3.554 m), Dent du Crocodile (3.640 m), Aiguille du Plan (3.673 m).

Nicely done, looks pretty hard to climb to the top there.

haha edible, yes!!... these mountains look like a lemon ice cream :-)
in anyway, for sure drinkable... I've been exploring extensively the Mont Blanc massif and only I know how much ice I've drank
I mean, I melt the ice to produce water, to cook
bye!
