Photographer's Note

The Valley Blanche is one of the most famous ski runs. It starts at the Aiguille du Midi and ends at Chamonix. It is the longest run in Europe at 22km (13.7 miles). This is serious skiing as can be seen from the ropes, harnesses and ice-axes. The run ends on the Mer de Glace or Sea of Ice. It's 7 km long, 1.200 km wide and 200 meters deep. This photograph shows the end of the glacier and glacial moraine can be clearly seen. If you look closely the vastness of the glacier can be recognised by the small ant like dots in the middle...skiers!

It was a snowy, overcast day but the weather lifted enough to get this picture.
