One more image done from the slopes of Andey peak in Massif des Bornes.
The first big cliff is a part of Bargy mountain and i can't remember the name of the three high summits in the background.

Four days after my first visit to Massif des Bornes, we had one new and short window of correct weather. So i decided to come back and explore some of the mountains above Bronze river.
I drove to Solaison plateau and then hiked to Andey peak. It was a pleasant and easy walk with a very nice view from the top.
The image posted above was done at dusk while i was walking down to my car. Bargy mountain is the large and rocky one you can see on the left of the picture.
One more image of the Bronze river from my first explorations in Massif des Bornes area.
Waiting for the light to be good on Dard waterfall, i had a beautiful hike along the river running underwoods in a narrow canyon.
I guess it will be a wonderful place in autumn.
Why so much images about rivers and forest ?
Some may be surprised by the amount of photos here about the french forests and running waters. There are many reasons for this big number of images :
- I've always loved forest, waterfalls and rivers. So i couldn't imagine my photographic work without them.
- I've clients for this kind of images working in forest industry so, even on short term, i don't loose my time when i increase my stock with such images and my return on invest is acceptably short.
- People and business say to be more and more concerned about our natural environment. Forest and rivers are two important keys of this environment and i expect my stock to become more and more valuable.

A new place discovered yesterday.
Dard waterfall or Cascade du Dard is on the Bronze river running through the mountains of Massif des Bornes in Haute Savoie department.
I arrived in the middle afternoon and the light was really too hard on the fall. So, i explored the narrow and underwood canyon lower on the river.
After a nice hike and a few images of the stream, i was back to the waterfall around 7 pm. The sun was still a bit high and i spent the last waiting time looking for the best point of views.
The image posted here was done under the very last sunrays. The contrast between dark trees and clear sky was really high and i thought that HDR could be one of the best solution for this view. So i took a serie of 5 exposures. Back home, i processed them with Picturenaut to obtain the result you can see here.
