The summit of Monte Bianco or Mont Blanc at dawn
This is most likely my first aerial picture taken. I was heading to Geneva, Switzerland on a commercial flight and I had the luck to spot the giant at dawn with its peak blessed by the morning light. Shot on Ektachrome transparency.
The summit of Monte Bianco or Mont Blanc – both meaning “White Mountain” – is the highest peak in the Alps and in Europe with its elevation of 4,807 m (15,771 ft). The location of the summit is on the watershed line between Italy [R] and France. The glacier is visible at the bottom of the image.
