Epic Drus

Shot taken right after a turbulence that has involved both the Italian and French side of Mont Blanc massif... revealing, at the end, the Aiguilles of Chamonix, literally encrusted in ice.

 

This is a detail of the world famous Aiguille du Dru, with its two summits (Grand Dru 3.754 m, and Petit Dru 3.733 m), with the ridge that goes up to the left, towards the Aiguille Verte.

 

This area is less iced, but the warm alpenglow of the sunset made the clearing storm endlessly magical, as I have ever seen.

So I've opted for this photo, thought much in detail.
