A recent image of the beach of Imperial Palace at night in Annecy.
It was a cold and grey autumn sunday. I wasn't inspired by the natural landscape auround my home, didn't want to drive too far, so i went for a city walk in Annecy and ended with a few images of architecture from different ages.
That's the third image of this place i post here.
They were all done in Annecy during the last days of winter with a very beautiful weather. This one during the afternoon, the first one at dusk and the other one at dawn.
I really like this one with sun light on the lake and first moutains and snow in the far background.
In the afternoon, the long exposure was possible only with a dark ND filter like my Hoya ND 400, anoter version with a shorter exposure can be seen here.
A ten days old image done along the lake by a beautiful evening.
All my photos of Annecy and its lake can be seen here.
After some long rainy weeks, the sun is back for a few days and i spent a nice time friday afternoon to complete my collection about Annecy lake.
All these new images have been posted this morning on my website.
If you want to have a look, it's here.
A beautiful october morning in Annecy.
Not the kind of photo i make the most but i think that this image perfectly shows why Annecy is so visited by tourists from all over the world.
Albigny beach is one of the most popular along Annecy lake because it's really close to the city (I could say in the city !).This image was done in the early morning about 10 days ago, during a walk started before dawn.
During the past weeks, i spent 2 mornings in Annecy making images around the lake. Expect to see more in the next days ...
Initially built in 1913, Impérial Palace is a 4 stars hotel just near the lake and also contains a congress center and a casino. It's obviously a private place but gardens and beaches are opened and very appreciated by the public (locals or tourists).
One more view of Annecy lake from Col de la Forclaz. Done just after dawn during my most recent visit to this place in the first days of autumn.
Another image from a few weeks ago, during this afternoon on Mont Baron over Annecy lake.
While the others were done with GND filters, this one is the result of a HDR work done with Picturenaut from 2 exposures.
It's free of any filtering artifact and i think it's my fav in the serie.
One more from friday, still done while walking down from Mont Baron.
During my long time waiting for a correct light i met a very nice couple and we had an interesting and pleasant discussion about photography and the joy of living in a so beautiful region. They were wiser than me and left the mountains before the night :)
Mont Veyrier and Mont Baron are two of the closest mountains above the east coast of Annecy lake.
Viewed from the city, they can look as the same mountain but when you climb them, you can really distinct the two summits.
I went there on friday afternoon. I spent the first hours hiking, looking for interesting points of view.
My most interesting images of the lake were done at dusk while walking down from Mont Baron. This one was the last one, done in really late dusk and after i had a "funny" walk in the steep and dark forest without the head lamp i forgot at home ...
In the background, you can see the mountains of Massif des Bauges.
Another image from my visit tuesday to Forcalz pass.
