This is another two hour challenge. I planned it on the "keep it simple" principle. However it took slightly longer than one might expect given how little is in it. The time taken was of course much shorter that two hours I guess the extra time was spent on having to do more than one laver on the mountain and the chalets.

The final result almost has the effect of a "Travel Poster" from the 1930's. I had not planned for this but it is most appealing now that I see it.

This is the ref, slightly cropped from the originaly supplied challenge photograph.

  1. I can almost imagine some climbers in the background with their old fashioned gear, before it got all technical.
