Last of the winter snow
Spectacular images of soaring peaks are something of a Swiss cliché so I wanted to make a more prosaic image that reflected the day-to-day reality of living in the high Alps. I was perched on a low berm, created to provide avalanche protection for the nearby community of La Fouly. To my right, a football pitch had been scraped out of the landscape.
