Chamonix at Cloud Level

The Wall

The Wall

Chamonix is a ski resort in the Southeast of France not far from Geneva.  It sits in the valley by Mount Blanc.  You know the difference between France and Switzerland immediately.  The roads have tolls and the petrol costs more in France.

  3. I was in Chamonix and Les Houches a few years ago – didn’t get these perspectives but was impressed nonetheless. Beautiful shots.

    • I was lucky to get these because the cable car did not open until the morning we were supposed to leave.

    All the photos are stunning (as usual) but I particularly like the B&W…

    December 8, 2013 at 12:14 pm

  15. Wow.. absolutely love these! Especially how the black and white photos really emphasise the dramatic sheetings of snow!

  16. awesome pics

    December 8, 2013 at 1:16 pm

  17. Indeed, a charming alpine village. Having been there, I can say easily that you have captured its beauty even more majestically than ‘just being there.’ Stunning shots. Thank you.

    • Thank you Eric. It was a really nice place to spend a few days.

      December 8, 2013 at 4:09 pm

  18. Awesome shots Ron!

    December 8, 2013 at 1:26 pm

  19. My jaw dropped and that really doesn’t happen too often here, but WOW! Amaaazzzing images Ron!

    December 8, 2013 at 2:49 pm

  20. These are really wild! I can feel the cold blast of snow they are so graphic.

    December 8, 2013 at 3:24 pm

  21. Wow!

    December 8, 2013 at 5:22 pm

  22. Enjoyed each image for its own strong character.

    December 8, 2013 at 6:16 pm

  23. Another awesome group of photos Ron. The B&W of the mountains reminds me of Ansel Adams. I must say I am envious of the location…wow!

  24. I am curious as to why salami is part of this mountain set? Is the village famous for salami and snow?

    December 9, 2013 at 1:22 am

    • I don’t have a logical answer for that, but I liked the shot.

      December 9, 2013 at 1:23 am

      • It is good. Wondered if it was there to see if we were all awake or “one of these things is not like the other” sort of thing :)

        December 9, 2013 at 2:15 am

  25. Awesome mountain views! By the way, for me salmi is in the sequence with the mountain views, especially in the B&W.

    December 9, 2013 at 10:23 am

  26. breathtakingly beautiful captures…even the salami is cool!!

    December 9, 2013 at 10:33 am

  27. Beautiful photos! How high up were you? From the looks of it, you would have had to have used an axe and some crampons to get some of those shots! We are hoping to get there sometime soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

    December 9, 2013 at 11:16 am

    • I was able to shoot these from easily accessible walkways. About 3,800 meters above sea level.

      December 9, 2013 at 12:07 pm

  28. Fantastic!

    December 9, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    • Hi Kavita, nice to hear from you. I am seeing a lot of viewers from India lately.

      December 10, 2013 at 1:32 am

  30. Wonderful shots! I just got back from Chamonix and was about to start going through my photos… I might not bother now. You’ve captured the sheer scale of the place perfectly.

  31. Were you on a road to get up this high? HOW did he DO that?

    December 11, 2013 at 2:29 pm
