Photographer's Note

Le dôme du goûter

Mont Blanc (Monte Bianco in Italian) in the Mont Blanc, from the department of Haute-Savoie (France) and Valle d'Aosta (Italy), subject of a dispute between the two countries is the culmination of the Alps. With a height of 4 meters 810.90, it is the highest peak in Western Europe and the sixth on the continental level by considering the Caucasus Mountains.

The summit has for centuries been a target for all sorts of adventurers since its first ascent in 1786. Many popular routes can now climb with thorough preparation. It is an object of fascination in many cultural works.
