Usual readers will certainly recognize this view.
I had images of this lake in summer and autumn, this one is just from a few days ago.

Diomaz river runs in the mountains around Bellevaux above Lake Vallon.
I returned there last week, two years after my first visit and was really amazed by the beautiful autumn colors. I spent the afternoon walking around the lake and in the forest and ended at night with the only light of my headlamp.
More images to come soon.

Another image from my visit one week ago to Vallon lake.
I think this view of Roc d'Enfer mountain reflected on the water at dusk is my favorite.
All my photos of this day were published on my website on sunday. You can have a look here.

End of the day on Vallon lake

Vallon lake in Bellevaux was created in 1943 by a huge landslip from a surrounding mountain which created a natural dam on Brevon river.
It is located in the mountains of french Chablais (NE par of Haute-Savoie department) and is surrounded by a beautiful mountain forest.
The mountain nicely reflected on the water is the Roc d'Enfer (Hell's Rock) and has an elevation of about 2 200m.

I spent the afternoon yesterday hiking around the lake under an amazing blue sky. I made a few images although it was not my favorite light but i'm sure the place worth another visit by a cloudy autumn day or better in winter.
