red hues of late-November…:-)

malgré les nuages gris, le soleil de fin-novembre annoncent l’arrivée du dernier mois de l’année… les teintes de rouge sont puissantes et fragiles, déterminées et rapides, libres et sauvages – comme l’amour insomniaque sur “le qui-vive”… et je me dis que notre existence terrestre ressemble à une étoile filante ou à un papillon éphémère d’une galaxie sans fin… 🙂

in spite of the gray clouds, the late-November sun heralds the arrival of the last month of the year… these shades of red are strong and delicate, firm and quick, free and wild – like insomniac and alert love… and I think that our earthly lifetime seems to be a shooting star or an ephemeral butterfly from an endless galaxy… 🙂

Have a sunny last day of November and an optimistic first week of December! 🙂

Le Lys – de Superbagnères à Luchon…

Superbagnères – “Balcon des Pyrénées”… cette petite station de ski doit son surnom à son emplacement géographique: située sur un plateau à 1800m, elle offre une vue panoramique sur la vallée de Luchon et les sommets des Pyrénées dont le glacier du “Pico Aneto”(3404 m). Le 1er bâtiment aura été “le Grand Hôtel”, ouvert en 1922, il reste de nos jours encore, tout aussi impressionnant… 🙂

“le Lis(Lys)” is a 9km-mountain stream, flowing from the Pyrénées to Bagnères-de-Luchon, Haute-Garonne county…

Superbagnères – “Balcony of the Pyrenees”(1440m-2260m) is a small ski resort whose nickname is due to its geographical location: situated on a plateau at 1800m, it offers panoramic views over Luchon valley and some of the Pyrenean peaks like ‘Pico Aneto’ glacier(3404 m). The 1st building has been “the Grand Hotel”, it opened in 1922, and it’s still impressive nowadays… 🙂

P.S. I highly recommend the wonderful movie, directed by Robert Redford, with Brad Pitt & Craig Sheffer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z7yeXtBQMU
