Summer at Lac Blanc

We took this photo yesterday at Lac Blanc in the Aiguilles Rouges. The old winter refuge is still half buried in snow, and believe it of not, the lake itself is in the background of the photo, still covered in ice. At the moment the snowline is around 2100m on the south facing slopes, and it builds up quickly so at the lake height of 2350m.
