Autumn is here in Chamonix….

Autumn has arrived in Chamonix.

It has arrived quite quickly and approximately three weeks earlier than previous years… The trees are now glorious shades of yellows, orange and brown…  The snowline is falling – although the forecast was for snow down to 1400 metres the other day, I think the snowline is nearer 1800!

This shot was taken from central Chamonix of the Aiguilles…

Judging from the snow and early Autumn, it looks like my forecast for a great early start to the ski season could be right….
