The Magic of Mont Blanc: A Photojourney

  1. 1. The Magic of Mont Blanc: A Photojourney monkeysandmountains.com /mont-blanc-photos While t here’s no doubt t hat Mont Blanc is magical – especially t he wildf lowers, t his post is a bit t ongue in cheek. You see I had my new Olympus camera with me and was trying to get more contrast between the glacier covered Mont Blanc and the white clouds. I discovered a magic setting that seemed to do the trick. My photos looked really good on the screen. It wasn’t until I got home, downloaded them that I saw the true effect of the magic setting. Not exactly the look I was going for! Especially on 80% of my photos! But in the meantime, enjoy the magic of Mont Blanc: Although the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) comprises France, Italy and Switz erland, you’ll notice there are no pictures of Switz erland included in here. That’s because of the two days we hiked in Switz erland, Mont Blanc was covered in clouds and rain for an entire day. The other day offered OK views of the summit, but nothing special. It’s worth noting Th e “ m a g i c” o f Mo n t B l a n c a s s e e n fr o m Ita l y.
  2. 2. that on a clear day there is an alternate route in Switz erland which is known for its spectacular views. Due to poor visibility we didn’t take that route… perhaps maybe (dare I say it?) ….next time? Also check out my post on How to Plan Your Own TMB with lots of handy tips and practical information.
