Autumn in Val d’Hérens

This year, early November brought the first snows to the high mountains in Valais. Tanya and I went exploring for an afternoon around La Forclaz, which is a favourite haunt. It is spectacular year-round, but in autumn the larch trees turn golden and the snowline descends and it has a cold and magical charm of its own. Here are pictures from this wintery day in mid-autumn in Val d’Hérens.
