20140913-175043
The hotel in Orsieres was very 1980s... maybe even 1970s, in a "long in the tooth" sort of way. I kept thinking i was in a spy thriller.

20140913-112930
This is a view across Bagnes, i think at Louvie, and the descent we made. The human-made structures at the foot of the mountain (centre) i think have to do with power generation (hydroelectric).

we're heading down the trail above the Corbassiere (melt-) stream now, towards Fionnay. That's some frost on the grass.

20140913-084746
Glacier de Corbassiere... you can see some enormous boulders in the till that the glacier brought here.

20140913-084737
Combin de Corbassiere and Petit Combin

20140913-084731
Glacier de Corbassiere and Grand Combin... it's incredible to think that we saw this four days earlier as we were coming down from Lac de Louvie... but from across the valley.

20140913-084027
Combin de Corbassiere and Petit Combin, again. All these photos may seem excessive, but the views were simply incredible, and hard-earned.

20140913-084022
(more) morning Sun on the Grand Combin and Combin de Corbassiere

20140913-074358
the trail we came down yesterday, along one of the glacier's morraines

20140913-074259
Cab. Panossiere before the glacier and Grand Combine. I'm not entirely sure why there is (apparently) an outdoor shower. (I used an indoor one.)

20140913-074235
more of the mountains (close and far) to the North of Cab. Panossiere

20140913-074218
North towards Bagnes... the vague black shapes in the dim shadows are a flock of Alpine Chough i bothered (again)

20140913-074120
Combin de Corbassiere and Petit Combin and the moon.

20140913-074030
Combin de Corbassiere and Petit Combin... the light was apparently too challenging for me and my camera phone.

20140913-074007
morning Sun on the Grand Combin and Combin de Corbassiere

20140913-074002
morning Sun on the Grand Combin

20140913-073955
same shot, but the camera has focussed on the Chough's feather

20140913-073946
The morning light is wreaking havoc with the GS II's camera, also not helped by the fact that it's chosen to focus on the most uninteresting part of this picture: a stone picnic table. I think the sunlit peak on the left is Combin de Corbassiere.

20140913-072519
This is looking North at the cabanes' laundry line, and a several lines of mountains that are NE Bagnes, and far in the distance, i think that's the range N-NW of Saxon & Riddes, which are back in the Rhone valley, where we got off the train.

20140913-065252
The next morning, a clear view(!) of Glacier de Corbassiere and Grand Combin

20140912-161554
...in fact, we're in a cloud.

20140912-161541
can't see any of the Glacier now...

Cabane François-Xavier Bagnoud à Panossière

Glacier de Corbassiere from Cabanes FXB Panossiere, through the clouds.

20140912-161516
Clouds have moved in, and the Alpine Chough have taken off, annoyed by a camera-wielding house ape (who didn't bring them any food).

20140912-161455
the front patio of Cabanes FXB Panossiere. The black birds are Alpine Chough.

Glacier de Corbassiere; it radiated a feeling of massive, incredible power.

20140912-145041
Glacier de Corbassiere, serving up a big morraine of glacial till

20140912-145033
Glacier de Corbassiere

20140912-144625
the clouds are still mostly hiding it, but across the us are some baby glaciers that feed into Glacier de Corbassiere, and 1,000m of mountains in the form of Combin de Corbassiere

20140912-144616
the final stretch to the Cabanes FXB Panosierre. I think that peak in the background is Becca de Sery.

20140912-144054
we're "down" to about 2,700m altitude now, looking N. at Glacier de Corbassiere and Grand Combine

20140912-143510
looking NW along Glacier de Corbassiere's Eastern lateral morraine, towards Cabanes. FXB Panossiere.

20140912-143500
Glacier de Corbassiere, and the foundation of an old building, with a small remaining hut.

20140912-143450
One of the few shots where the head of the glacier isn't obscured by clouds

20140912-142426
taken from a bit lower, you can see where the glacier moves down from the cirque

Glacier de Corbassiere

20140912-140846
just about all of the rest of Glacier de Corbassiere (with the previous two pictures). If you look closely to the right of centre, along the edge of the glacier (sitting on a lateral morraine) is Cabanes FXB Panossiere (our destination).

20140912-140721
pan to the right and here's another km (or so) of the Glacier Corbassiere

20140912-140716
low clouds over Glacier de Corbassiere ; you can see more of the glacier... what you can see here is about a kilometer long.

20140912-140258
low clouds over Glacier de Corbassiere.

20140912-140217
looking NW. towards the Plan Goli, and the path carved by the runoff of the Glacier.

20140912-135909
Glacier de Corbassiere; you can tell from the filenames that these pictures were taking just minutes apart. Now you can see the Grand Combin

20140912-135752
Glacier de Corbassiere; the mountains are most obscured by cloud.

20140912-135609
Glacier de Corbassiere; the mountains are most obscured by cloud, but you can see some of the smaller peaks to the NW of the Grand Combin

Glacier de Corbassiere; the mountains are most obscured by cloud.

20140912-135321
This was definitely one of the most amazing views and moments of the entire trip. We've walked for about five hours, and gained over a kilometer of altitude. We're now at Col des Otanes, altitude 2,880m, and in front of us is a glacier.

20140912-135047
... when you are walking the trail from Mauvoisin towards Col des Otanes and Glacier de Corbassiere, the last stretch of 100-200m before the Col is ochre-coloured (when it's not covered with snow...)

20140912-135040
here, the rocky rubble suddenly changed from grey to ochre-ish

20140912-134356
view down towards Plan Goli (mountains and glacier are to the left)

20140912-134328
Mirabelka approaching Col des Otanes

20140912-134321
not the way we walked down :)

20140912-134254
clouds will move in and out nearly the entire time we are near Glacier de Corbassiere.

20140912-134234
an old sign post

20140912-133513
The big peak centre-left is Combin de Corbassiere, 3,716m.

20140912-133506
... and then things level off and reveal the first of many jaw-dropping panoramic views.

20140912-133500
nearly to top of today's hike...

20140912-133456
Looking back, clouds are passing below us now in Bagnes. (La Pleureur centre)

20140912-133014
Looking back, clouds are passing below us now in Bagnes.

20140912-130424
Clouds have cleared up a bit. I don't know the name of the peak on the left... looks to be 2,771m on the map.

20140912-130409
part of a skull of some small mammal, along the trail towards Col des Otanes.

20140912-130356
this plant seemed so green in a field of rock that i had to take a picture.

20140912-130102
more or less the same shot as before, looking through Les Otanes, but with a strobey sunlight effect!

20140912-130057
... but this is the view ahead towards Col des Otanes (and Cab. FXB Panossierre).

20140912-130050
A small patch of snow in large field of rubble suggests where getting close to the top!

20140912-130047
Quite a bit higher now...i think about 2,500 m. Still looking East. The white and red paint you see on the top of the rocks along the ridge is the trail blaze.

20140912-113257
panned a bit to the right (South from the previous photo; centre is the foot of Glacier du Gietro

20140912-113218
The centre peak is Le Pleureur, seen from across Val de Bagnes (Google translates "Le Pleureur" as "Weeping") 3,704m

20140912-100830
There's a person in this photo, centre-left, walking (away) down the trail, If you look at it full size, you can see him, and it gives a perspective on the size of things.

20140912-100739
I love how this collection of jagged peaks look in the clouds....

20140912-100721
I love how this collection of jagged peaks look in the clouds....

20140912-095431
...though looking upwards on our side, it still looks pretty steep!

20140912-095401
The bottom of the Val de Bagnes seems farther away now, and the tops of the mountains across the valley no longer seem to loom....

20140912-094331
The beginning of this trail is quite steep... at this point i think we'd come 300+m up from Mauvoisin, and we had another 300 meters to climb before we'd start the approach to the Col des Otanes at 2,846 meters.

20140912-090812
Mirabelka examing a door, presumably into the engineering works for the dam.

20140911-121026
the sky has cleared up quite a bit to the South and now you can see the tops of more of the peaks that make up the Swiss-Italian border in Valais... i think that's Glacier d'Epicoune in the centre distance there.

20140911-113135
maybe Tournelon Blanc?

a Pretty Spring day, zooming along the viaduct just north of Haywards Heath. Its stone wall doesn't look like this (at least to me)... i suspect the left-lean it's acquired as to do with how the CCD in the camera in my phone builds the image, but i'm not really sure.

I just liked the way these two trees in the centre looked silhouetted against the evening sky.

There's less of "Skelepier" (the remains of Brighton's West Pier") these days -- the storms have pull down a substantial chunk of it.

Not a good night to be taking the train from anywhere between Woking and London Waterloo. (Supposedly high winds blew a tree down at Woking.)

I think this is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. Not going very fast around the tiny North Laines area of Brighton.

even in data centres computers get dirty after a few years. I suspect this is diesel particulate matter from automobiles driving on the nearby M25
