Be Open

On the way to chase my dream…When I was googling ‘Lupines’ or ‘Lupinus’ in Latin…& how to find it around Alps, I just saw on Pinterest someone’s post which says that we could see it in ‘Albiez’…That was the only information and was enough to boost me to go there…But, I didn't know the details, which Albiez (There are 3 different Albiez), which season, wild or planted etc. Just, my dream was seeing the Lupines in the wild and taking its photo at sunset with the mountains on the background…A friend of mine joined me to share this adventure… We just went… We loved these villages…surrounded with peaks of french Alps…Pure nature..Amazing Alpine flowers…Fresh Air…Wonderful weather…Birds chirping everywhere etc. And, the interesting thing is, there was nobody in these villages…Because, the high season is winter…In this region (among 4 villages) we found 1 restaurant open, 1 place to sleep etc. However, we loved it..meeting and talking to many cyclists of tour de France, and some very friendly local people, discovering untouched nature etc. Anyway, when we arrived to the first village, we found it in the backyard of the Chalet… Then another in the next village and so on…I’m glad that we’ve seen it…But, I couldn't get what I exactly want…However, I found some other amazing shots…This photo is one of them…This man made lake with interesting colours is in Col du Mollard in Albiez-Montrond. We were there at the right time to chase this amazing sunset and reflection… So, it is all about being open to see something beautiful….Just fingers crossed and go for it… BeNowMeHere, Albiez-Montrond, Savoie, France, 2015 via 500px
