French Alps by berndt2

Possibly a bit esoteric, and maybe verging on ‘happy-snap’, but I’ve had this photo as my desktop theme for weeks now and I do quite like some aspects of it : the slight heart-shape created by the sky and the wafting clouds, the sense of scale created by the small skiiers in the bottom right corner, and the fairly nice sky.

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).

    Love the dramatic feel to it, Looks like a place that one would have to stop for some time and just breath in all that you could see before gliding done the Slope.
