Le Chatel - Aerial pictures
The last flight of 2006, the 31th of December around 2pm took place in the earth of the alps at 70 km south to Grenoble in a area I consider personnaly as the paradise of alpine slope soaring. The mountain calls "Le Chatel". This is the first time I go there, because usually this is a popular place for paraglider, and as you know, aeromodellers and paragliders are not often the best friends in this world !
To reach the summit we started by a 20 minutes drive, then 45 minutes of walk sometime a little bit difficult because of some snow here and there. But finally, we reached the summit at 1984 meters of altitude. Some pictures of this mountain: picture 1, picture 2
I took my EasyGlider equiped with a 4 Mp digital camera. Then I took some other shots with my EOS 10D.
I let you with the pictures. Enjoy !
