Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Great St. Bernard Pass

I spent a few days this summer visiting my maternal great grandfather’s home town in the mountains north of Aosta, Italy. On my way back to Switzerland, I walked up the back of the “Colle di Gran San Bernardo” and took a few photographs of the clouds as they gathered over the jagged peaks and glaciers of the Alps. I need to visit this place again- I am accustomed to thin air and a long approach to see glaciers near 13,000 feet in Wyoming, but the ice in the Alps is much lower and often easier to reach.
