Many thanks Mimi for your comment.

Congratulations to your husband for his photo at the Lac du Mont Cenis. It's an idea for me next fall or winter for see and capture the lac wholly frozen. I have no Holidays but my vacations are at work in the mountains.

Have a nice Holidays.

Saluti di Savoia.

Thanks yves!

I will tell him! He likes also your photos a lot. I make him to see them. Hope you take a look also at other your photos in Lac du Mont Cenis.

Yes you have really nice holidays in mountain but from time to time to go to the sea is not so bad.

Howsoever, enjoy your time in mountain, now it is beautiful to stay also there!

I too prefer mountain but should go also for a while to the Black Sea

Saluti da Torino, Mimi

☺ JEAN de Québec ☺ on August 26, 2008

Wow! Quel lieu magnifique! Superbes nuances de bleus, on sent le froid. Était-ce le cas? Amitiés Jean

yves floret on August 27, 2008

Bonsoir Jean. Cette photo date du 28 novembre 2007 et il ne faisait pas très froid, peut-être -6 ou -8° C. La glace commençait juste à prendre sur les bords du lac dont le remplissage venait d'être terminé. Il s'agit d'une retenue artificielle de 130 000 m3 d'eau qui a été réalisée par l'entreprise où je travaille pour le compte de la station de ski de Courchevel en Savoie. Cette eau est utilisée pour le fonctionnement des installations d'enneigement ainsi que pour l'alimentation en eau potable.

Merci pour cet agréable commentaire.

Amitiés de Savoie. Yves

A really 'cool' photo. Remarkable the lake in shadow with mirroring of the sunny Mountains in the background.
