View from the Needle

View from the Needle

View from the summit of Aiguille du Midi (South Needle) in the French Alps looking towards Pointe Helbronner, on the Italian side of the Alps. Let me know if you can spot the two people in the Vallee Blanche (White Valley).

On the bright and sunny day I took this picture, the temperature on the summit was -20 C.

I wish I could say that I climbed it, but alas we ascended using the telepherique (cable car) :)
