My main goal in this area was a lake called "Lac de la Cula' which is slightly higher than this position. I've found the lake the day before in the afternoon - against expectations because I only had a miserable map -a print from Google Earth as always. I enjoyed the sun there and watched a donkey standing right next to the lake. From time to time he stopped eating and resting and started to cry just for a moment - sad and painful sounding. While I ate some boring crispbread and drank water myself I thought that that both of us aren't so different. We both carry a lot of heavy luggage to the high, then enjoy the sun with simple food and from time to time, we express our sorry. I smiled. ;) Anyway - in the evening I recognized that the brook I've seen on my way up to the lake seems to be much more photogenic so I went down in the early morning. Past some photos at the brook I decided to wait for the sun to take some photos against back-light. Waiting for the sun took longer than a few words I spoke about being a photographer (;P) so I decided to leave my camera there, ran up to my tent to pack it together and ran down. I did that and came back just in time - no one had stolen the camera but the photos of the sun which came over the mountain were not that good. ;P Finally I had a wonderful hike down in the pleasant air of the morning - also I saw some marmots.
This is the genesis of the image.
