Straddling Italy and France


During this winter, I decided to photography the winter Milky Way from one of the highest passes in europe :
the Agnel pass.

During the winter, you can go to this pass on skis or on foot but not by car.
I left at 2.30 p.m. from the bottom to climb the 700m of vertical drop over 9km to go skiing.
I was alone at an altitud of 2700m.
During the night, the temperature was -13°C without wind.
I started to ski down around 11.00 p.m under the stars.
