The colder winter-like days have now arrived and nature is slowly starting to go to sleep. Everything looks dead, but if you try to appreciate each and every season, then there's always something to see, even when it all looks quite sad outside.

What characterizes this period of the year is the dreamlike mist licking the contours of each and every mountain, the crushingly thick fog that stands over our heads, the fabulous sunsets, the crisp clear skies, the frost that makes the scenery look so magical or the snow which softens all landscapes like a cotton blanket. There's so much to admire...

This picture was taken at the very beginning of Autumn and it was the first morning mist of the season... A misty morning with aeroplane trails drawing geometrical patterns in the sky... A red Salève on a typical middle of autumn evening... The Salève looking splendid when bathed in warm autumnal sunset light...
A vision soon to come: a morning view of the frost bitten Salève (picture taken last year)...
