Mount Chamechaude, from the panoramic viewpoint located near the city hall. Near la Carlinière. St-Pierre, from la Carlinière. A map of the region. Self. A window in the village. A litte spring, near the Pont du logis bridge. The church. On our way to la Carlinière, mount Chamechaude in the backgroudn. Soup tureen and butterflies.

St-Pierre de Chartreuse, December 2012.

A mini-series about St-Pierre de Chartreuse, the village were my maternal grandmother was born. She still owns there a flat where I spend one or two weeks every year. Its a little ski resort so it can be quite crowded during winter vacations but it’s very (and I mean very) tranquil the rest of the year.

The park surrounding the village is just beautiful and you can enjoy there one of the finest spirit on earth, the marvelous green chartreuse, produced by the monks who lives in the near monastery of La Grande Chartreuse, head monastery of the Carthusian order. Forget about Jagermeister and Genepi if you happen to enjoy this kind of liqueurs, an ice cold chartreuse just can’t be beat.

About this series, photographically speaking, the M Monochrom is a great camera for b&w landscape: it’s a joy to open dng with so many details in it. And it reigns supreme for night shooting, as you can crank up the iso till 4000 or 5000 and still get a shot with a manageable amount of grain in it. All in all, it’s a superb camera, one I don’t see myself selling, even if the upcoming M type 240 is mouth watering for a gearhead like me.
