Autumn along Flumen river

Flumen is a short river running through Haut Jura Natural Park just near Saint Claude.
I went there for the first time past week between two rainy days. The place was dark and wet, the waterfalls were impressives with really strong noise and spray.

A few weeks ago early in the morning i was driving through Valserine valley. The heavy rains of many days before created a lot of mist and a very special mood.

A closer view of Saint Claude with its cathedral and some old houses.
The cathedral is more than 8 centuries old and has a very long name : Cathédrale Saint Pierre, Saint Paul et Saint André.
The Maison du Peuple that you can see in the foreground is also an old building used today as a cinema. You can read more (in french) about its history here.

Horse Tail waterall in Haut Jura Natural Park

Horse Tail waterall in Haut Jura Natural Park

 

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.

Green meadows and mountain forest in Valserine valley

Green meadows and mountain forest in Valserine valley

 

I'm just back from a short visit to some friends living in Valserine valley. This little trip in Haut Jura Natural Park was not photography oriented and i just took a very short time two days ago for a few images of the surrounding landscape. This one was done just near my friend's house and i think it gives a very nice view of the summer here. In winter these fields and coniferous trees are under tons of snow.

Crêt de Chalam is a mountain between Ain and Jura departments that i discovered about one month ago. It offers a very large and nice view on all the surroundings.

An image from a june trip in the mountains of Haut Jura Natural Park.
It was a beautiful evening on the valley with sun and clouds in the sky. I really love that place, lost between mountains and forests.

Note 1 : I've posted this morning 16 images from this day on my website.

Note 2 : On friday, i discovered and climbed a little mountain behind the ones you can see here. The light was not so beautiful but the view on Jura department was truely amazing. Photos will come soon.

Bouchoux village in Haut Jura natural park

I had a long drive yesterday through the mountains of Haut Jura Natural Park.

My first idea was to explore the higher part of Semine river valley near Belleydoux.
Arrived there, i found a very dull light and a little rain. The valley here looks like to a deep canyon and i think it needs more exploration to find some very interesting points of vue. After a few images i went back to my car and drove deeper in the park.
It led me to the village of Les Bouchoux where i found a beautiful and warm light until the end of the day.
