I photographed this view in 2009 and again this year in 2014. Thirty minutes from here you reach the summit of Le Petit Vignemale. Le Vignemale, the big one, is partly revealed in this shot. You can document different feelings in the mountains. You can depict drama, struggle, or beauty. I always aim for beauty. Moments of drama and struggle are poignant and impressive. They don’t endure. You escape the storm, retreat to safety, relax at the end of the day. This point has only now occurred to me. I might develop it.
