These photos are from a walk from the Barrage d’Emosson to Fontanabran (2703 m), the peak with the name of a breakfast cereal. Clouds hung around the Massif du Mont Blanc all day until the evening. When we were walking back along Lac d’Emmoson we were treated to amazing views across the lake to the massif in all its glory.
