Vallorcine - 1984 -- dia 6x6 x - d120croix02v09a84 - series Photo of the week


Late summer - for holidaymakers who chose to spend these days in the mountains, this is the time of nice walks.
It's still warm, but not too much, the colors are softly tint of autumn, blue sky tones have strong pastels.

I've always loved walking in middle altitudes, which takes effort, but still leaves the freedom to think, to dream, do not let that always true hiking.

Some images which are the translation.
In passing these few crosses that catch the eye and why I booked other pages
Same for the picture of cattle, which are part of a more comprehensive set of cows

Finally, short definitions Furetière in 1690, in his dictionary :
