Annecy lake, autumn morning at Albigny beach

Annecy lake, autumn morning at Albigny beach

 

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.
Others from this serie has been posted today on my website. You can check them from this page.

Imperial Palace in Annecy

Impérial Palace in Annecy

 

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.
This day, i just made 3 images of the lake before turning my eyes and feet to the forest.
These 3 photos are from this same scene, one was done at dawn, a little time before this one, the other was done a little time after ...

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.

Dusk time in the mountains over Annecy lake

Dusk time in the mountains over Annecy lake

 

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 :)

Night comes on Annecy lake

Night comes on Annecy lake

 

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.
It gives a nice overview of the area. You can see the lake surrounded by the mountains and in the far background, at the end of the lake, you can devine the city of Annecy.
Obviously, the light was not at its best ...

Duingt castle on Annecy lake, a view from the mountains

I woke up at 4 am this morning to drive to the mountains over Annecy lake. I stopped at Forclaz pass or Col de la Forclaz in french, which offers some nice points of view on the lake. It's a very famous place for paragliders who can easily start here some very nice flights in a stunning environment between lake and mountains.

My initial idea was to make images of the lake surrounded by the mountains but the sky was really cloudy (not announced by the forecast) and the landscape was most of time covered with some unsightly shadows.
I was lucky with some sun rays and could catch this image of Duingt castle with a long lens. It shows the castle under an other angle that my previous shots and also give a better idea of the peninsula.

Late evening on Annecy lake

Late evening on Annecy lake

 

I've just spent about one week in Haut Jura Natural Park to meet some nice friends. I just escaped one day for exploring a deep forest, after hours and hours of walking on little paths and climbing mountains, i went back at night without finding any good place for beautiful photography. Some days are like that ...

Yesterday i went back home for a little office work and in the evening i drove to Annecy for a few images around the lake. This one is the last i did and is also my own favourite.
Long exposure is due to the low light of the late evening and i balanced sky and lake with a 0.6 GND filter.

Evening light on Duingt castle

Evening light on Duingt castle

 

After my first visit to this pretty monument last week, i returned there this evening. I waited a long time after dusk for something like a nice blue hour but i think that this one is my best.
It was done a little after 8pm and the long exposure was possible thank's to my Hoya ND 400 filter.

Duingt castle on Annecy lake

Yesterday was a long day. It started before 5 am with a drive to Massif des Bauges Natural Park where i was hired by a client for a full morning shot.

When my work was finished i spent the afternoon exploring some new places in the park, sometimes driving, sometimes hiking. In the early evening, i reached the borders of Annecy lake and drove to this little castle. Located in a village named Duingt, it's mostly known as Duingt castle but i think historians prefer to use one of its other names : Ruphy castle or Châteauvieux castle.

The castle is built on a little peninsula on Annecy lake, it's about one thousand years old, and is registred as one of the historics french monuments.
Today, it's a private property and owners live in.

A reminder of the very cold 2012 winter we had here.
I stayed really late on that place this evening, waiting for a deep blue hour and i still remember the cold in my bones.

Blue hour on Annecy lake


One more image from 2 days ago. So it was a great sunday afternoon.

Cold was still really strong and i spent about one hour standing with my tripod in front of the lake photographing the changes of light during dusk time.
I'll post images from time to time here but i published the entire serie yesterday on my french website.
