As I passed under the Dent des Portes clouds began to gather menacingly overhead. This was my first time hiking in the Massif des Bauges region of the French Alps and it was looking more and more like it was about to welcome me with a big dump of rain.
The heat of the day subsided, and a cool breeze began to flow across the mountain as the sun was shut out of the sky. Looking left I noticed a beautiful symmetry in the horizon. The dark clouds made for a fantastic sky and fortunately there was a lone hiker just making his way across the ridge.
His presence really shows the scale of the landscape, although I do wish he was a bit more prominent in the frame. You really have to view full screen to have an idea it’s a person at all! I experimented with a few different crops, but I was happiest with this one in the end.
