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.

Horse Tail waterfall, aka cascade de la Queue de Cheval is one of the highest in Haut Jura Natural Park and the image above only shows the lower part.
I went the for a first visit yesterday but i was a little disppointed because despite the big rains we had recently, water level was really low and the fall not impressive.

Walking the forest path overhanging the river, i first made a few stops to make some images of all these lush greens. With all the recent springtime rains, every forest here looks to be a tropical one.
Then i just had to go on a little more to discover a kind of deep and green canyon were the river was running tumultuously.
The point of view "from above" was not very interesting so i started to search one way to reach the river. I finally found one scary but direct access to the other end of the canyon. The place was green wet and wild and filled with the noise of this small but powerful waterfall.

Yesterday, i spent a part of the afternoon exploring the Rhône valley between Ain and Haute-Savoie departments. I was lucky enough to be able to make a few images under a correct light between rain showers.In the late dusk, i was driving back home and crossed Franclens village when i saw the church illuminated. I stopped for a few shots before the night became too dark.

Still posting images from my last outing to this waterfall. This one was done in the very late afternoon but i needed my Hoya ND 400 filter to get a long enough exposure for this effect on the "lake".
As we have an awful weather almost every day, i spend a lot of time browsing the net and looking at maps, searching for some interesting places to photograph and i found yesterday another waterfall named Pain de Sucre in Ain department. Actually, like Jura, this department really has many and many rivers and falls and is a very good photographic destination at spring and autumn.

About one week ago along Fornant river.
I was not very active here during the past weeks. One of the clients for which i make architecture images about wood made buildings asked me to design an application to show my images on a large multitouch screen in Paris during the next days.
I had in a very short time to choose and buy hardware and software and develop the presentation.
I choose a 46 inches Samsung display with a multitouch overlay from PQ Labs. About software, after a few tries and as i was in a hurry, i went for IntuiFace Presentation. It's a very nice application, really user friendly and which doesn't need any real programmation. It has of course a few limits but it made the job.

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.

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.

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.

One more image from this serie i did in the first week of May.
Once more, i used my Hoya ND 400 filter for the long exposure in full daylight.

In my first post about this place i wrote i couldn't find the name of the river running here. A more complete search with different maps told me it's the Castran river.
This image was also done during my first visit to the canyon. I returned there on last friday, the stream was still running nicely, the green forest was wonderfully lush but the waterfall was dry ...

That's a new place i discovered just the day before my departure to Paris.
We were hiking with my family in the forest close to our home and discovered a little stream running underwood. After about a one hour walk along the river, we heard the noise of this double waterfall. After a few more steps in the woods, we discovered this small canyon.
Back home, i had a look at the map, found the river and the waterfall but no name was given. A rapid look at the web didn't give more information.
I returned on the place with a camera in the evening for images of the waterfall and i expect to return in the next days for more photos of the stream under the springtime woods.

One more from my last visit to Nernier.
It was not easy to get because the wind was blowing strongly at dusk time making the boats to move and many duks were crossing the lake leaving some "dirty" tracks on the silky water.
