About the shot

Great night ski session

This was the first cross country ski session at night. I wasn't that adventurous so I stayed near the slopes. It is still a great moment to have the nice mountain quite easily accessible.
At the ski resort, the spot lights were illuminating the slops and the tree line. This provided enough light to have a 30 sec exposure.
For the rest, this was shot with a tripod of course at ISO 100 and a 16 mm lens.

About the story

Jura in the winter offers thousands of possibilities

From le col de la Faucille, you can easily reach the Petit Mont Rond and from there you will have a superbe view on the Leman and on the back, you have the Alps. And in the alignment of the west you have the Mont Blanc. The Mont Blanc is the European highest peak.

There is also another nice place: La Vattay. This is a large cross country ski resort. The nice part are the woods and this gives such a fantastic landscape. This is specially, the case when the snow covers the pine trees.

From the Tiocan, just above Thoiry, there are some very nice trails.
