This is the nautical radio communications centre at Pointe du Raz. It was another big coastal sky but this time coupled with a howling gale blowing in from the Atlantic. A scene both breathtaking in the visual as well as physical sense!

Some of the most interesting landscapes, or in this seascape, are, at first look, the most gloomy. The remains of the concrete pier are, I have to admit, pretty ugly, the sky is one of those “is it going to pour down?” skies, but non the less, the place has a certain gravity – it fascinated me more than if it had had a blue sky and nice fluffy sheepy clouds. But there again, I do tend towards a certain gloom in my photography.

The tide was out, revealing the mud banks. The sun shone through the early morning mist giving the scene a ghostly feel. It was a wonderful 30 minutes or so until the mist was burnt off and the atmosphere was gone.
Winter is never far away above 3000 meters. It had snowed in the night up at the Britannia Hut (3030m) and we awoke to see the rocks around the hut covered in snow. The day was cold, windy and seemed to have jumped a few months into the winter season. The strong winds, though, blew the clouds through at great speed which gave us constantly changing views. This photograph shows the lower part of the Hohlaubgrat dropping down from the Allalinhorn and, behind that, the lower part Rimpfischorn lit by the early morning sun.
Here is a second photograph taken at the music festival in Landerneau. The complete picture gallery can now be seen online. Please feel free to click through the photographs.

Yesterday I posted the last couple of meters below the Strahlhorn summit; today it´s a general view taken from the Britannia hut (3030m) looking south. The large glacier is the Allalin Glacier. From left to right, the lower mountain is the Fluchthorn (3790m), behind that is the Strahlhorn (4190m) then comes the impressive Rimpfischhorn (4198m) and the Hohlaubgrad of the Allalinhorn (4027m).
Maybe from here one could ask why it took 6 hours to summit on the Strahlhorn, in fact it does´t look that far away. But what one can´t see from this vantage point is the dead ground which has to be crossed on the right of the picture into the Hohlaub Glacier and then across a couple of rocky ridges before the Allalin Glacier is even reached. In fact, from the hut, 200 valuable meters altitude are lost before the real ascent can begin.
