I’m a self-taught amateur photographer living near the Alps, in France. These mountains have always inspired me; I love their epic landscapes, the contrasts between the rock, the snow and the colors of the trees. As I don’t live far away, I often have the opportunity to spend days hiking. The Alps offer a wide variety of landscapes, among the highlands, the valleys with their waterfalls or the snow-capped peaks. The place that inspires me the most is near Briançon. It’s a valley surrounded by the Écrins mountains to the south and by the highlands to the north. Autumn is the best season to go, because the trees turn into a beautiful golden color. The best time for me to take my photographs is in the evening, when the sun colors the clouds while they make their way between the mountains.
