Mt Blanc in October 2013, thanks for all the comments.

On October 13, 2013 I had the opportunity to go to Chamonix to see Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe. The viewing platform is on Aiguille du Midi at elevation of around 3800m (12500ft) while the peak is 1000m higher (15750ft). It was very windy on top and the snow seemed to be lifted off and merged with the clouds. At the same time layers of snow were dropping off forming avalanches. It was like if the mountain was alive, an unforgettable experience. I took this photo with Canon 5D MKII camera and Canon 24-105mm lens, settings were 24mm, 1/800s, f8, ISO100. Processing was by single image tonemapping in Photomatix and the final edit in Lightroom 5.
