A trip to Le Mont-Dore in Central France is an extraordinary journey through time and space. Nested in the slopes of the ancient stratovolcano Puy de Sancy, the earth's tremors gave birth to a welcoming ski resort, and a hearty pathway to the highest point in the mountain range. The cable car will only take you to a needle just below the summit, leaving you the pleasure of climbing over 800 steps on a precarious stairway to the top, at 6188 ft. These HDR photos attempt to immerse you in time and space, en route to Mont-Dore, for your viewing pleasure.
