Shining springtime in the canyon

Two days ago i returned to the canyon of Chéran river. That was the first time since i discovered this beautiful place five years ago.
The path to the river is not really easy to find, i lost myself in the forest and finally arrived to a place i've searched but not found 5 years ago.

Springtime in the river

An image very similar to one published some weeks ago, the most noticeable difference being the longer exposure time due to a dark ND filter.

All my images of this beautiful river can be seen here.

My previous image of Cheran river was done from a little bridge named Pont de Banges. For this one, i found a little steep path to the rocks overhanging the river under the bridge.

Early springtime around river Cheran

 

First post here for many months. Some little problems kept me busy far from my cameras during the first part of this year.

Yesterday was my first outing for personal work and i went to visit a part of river Cheran i didn't have photographed before.

These little cabins in the fields are very typical of Massif des Bauges. They where used to keep hay and avoid fire risks in the village.
This image was done a few days ago just near La Compôte village.

When i made this image of Bellecombe en Bauges village, i was standing in some green meadows under a very cloudy sky.
Just for a few minutes, the sun lighted the forest just near and i just had the time to run a little through the fields and make this image.

My last visit to Massif des Bauges Natural Park some weeks ago started with some rural landscapes near Bellecombe village, continued with some images of river Chéran and ended in this forest overhanging the river. It was a mixed forest with coniferous and decideous trees, the last ones providing the green background in this image.

All my images from Massif des Bauges Natural Park are here.

Massif des Bauges Natural Park

Massif des Bauges is a french natural park created in 1995.
It includes some parts of two departments Savoie and Haute Savoie.
It's mostly a mountains region with quaint villages, rural landscapes and rivers.

One of the main rivers is river Chéran which starts in Savoie mountains and goes to river Fier in Haute Savoie. It's known to carry some gold.

Farming and tourism are two important activities for local people.
The park is very appreciated by tourists in all seasons for skiing, hiking and local food.

Rural landscape with hay stacks in Massif des Bauges

One more image of this july afternoon in Massif des Bauges Natural Park.
This one was done just a very short time after i left my client, at the beginning of my long drive through the park.
I saw these hay stacks near the road when i was on a pass named Col des Prés. It was not the best time for photography but my stock was short of rural landscapes with hay stacks, so i stopped for a very few images.

I'll soon post more pictures from this day here but i've published the most interesting ones on my website a few days ago. You can have a look here.

An image from july.
In this hot summer day afternoon, i was driving through Massif des Bauges Natural Park, back from a client assignment. I had spent the morning making architecture images of a wood made building and wanted to relax a bit and explore the park.
I love driving on mountain roads, climbing the passes and discovering the landscape all around.

I arrived at La Compôte in the second part of afternoon, had a fresh drink in a café, hiked the hills all around for a few shots and drove to Annecy lake and Duing castle.
