Standing on top of the tallest volcano in France is a humbling feeling. Normally, I 'm not able to bring my camera gear with me, since for me the main focus on Puy de Sancy has been snowboarding. This trip in August awarded us with a different kind of an experience - a rich nature reserve with awe-inspiring vistas into the surrounding countryside. This shot was taken at the altitude of 1880 meters above sea-level. I wish to photograph the same spot also when it is covered with snow and ice. Maybe this winter I will spare a couple of hours or even a day away from the slopes to do so.
