Mont Blanc and Mont Maudit from the Tête des Fra today... plastered in snow! Windy and cold up high today and set to get stronger again for the next few days...

Mont Blanc

Deep cold snow brings back the playfulness of childhood! Great fun in the Grand Montets woods today!
@tom_grant_ flying into a steep chute... we found him 10 minutes later grinning ear to ear...!

Chamonix, France

The West Face of the Aiguille Verte (4122m) and Les Drus at sunset last week. Chamonix. One of my favourite mountains!

Prints available for Christmas on my site -!

Chamonix, France

Watch your step!! Jon Morgan on the epic Biancograt of the Piz Bernina (4049m) earlier this summer!

Just working my way through the 200,000 images I have taken for this book on the Alpine 4000m peaks... lots of chapters written up now and hope to publish next Autumn!

Piz Bernina

Tons of snow falling and "high" avalanche risk across the western Alps right now... Photo of Valentine skiing Becca Pugnenta in Aosta, Italy!!

La Thuile - Lago d'Arpy, Valle D'Aosta

Outrageous sunset over Mont Blanc earlier this week - taken from Semnoz. Central peak is the Aiguille de Bionnassay (4052m) then Dôme du Goûter (4304m) and the very summit of Mont Blanc is in the bedlam of clouds behind!!

Chamonix, France

Dusk in the Chamonix valley this evening - perfect timing after a quick post work ski up to Prarion...! Didn't even have a tripod so plonked the camera on a wall to get this (15 second exposure to get the car lights blurred)

The mountains are L-R Chardonnet, Aiguille Verte, Droites, Courtes, Charmoz, Grepon, Blatiere + Aiguille du Plan! ~ have a nice evening!

Chamonix, France

Valentine on the Dent Blanche (4357m) by the Grand Gendarme... frigid cold morning... just about here we thought it might be better to put a rope on... fragile crusts of snow on top of rock slabs didn't inspire perfect confidence!! Such a great route the South Ridge!

Dent Blanche

Sunset over the Dents du Midi (3257m, Switzerland) last week from Les Grands Vans, Flaine

This is how plans are born... that south-west face looks like such a beautiful place to ski. Does anyone know it? Is it as good as it looks?

Tour des Dents-du-Midi

This was one of those beautiful but apprehensive moments when I didn't know if I was going to get the shot or get enveloped in clouds!... Valentine, Jon and i had got up at 2am to go up the Piz Morteratsch (3751m) so we could photograph the Biancograt of the Piz Bernina (4049m) at sunrise...

Piz Bernina

Soft evening light, quiet mountains and plenty of cold dry powder above 2000m... let's hope the snow continues!

Valentine Fabre in the Massif de Fiz yesterday, Haute Savoie, France!


Aiguille Verte (4122m) and Les Drus at sunset this evening - Chamonix. .
Plenty of snow fallen up high so had a nice ski tour today!
