I was stunned when I first saw this view in 2009. You climb an easy path up from a Spanish lake to Col de Moines. Within the space of a few steps this area unfolds in seconds. A joyous moment and also unnerving at the time because of the sudden expanse. Now I walk around here happily having got my bearings and sense of orientation. Or lie for a moment to take a quirky photograph.
