The Dawn of the Nightglory

The nighttime Mont Blanc massif reflecting in alpine lake Lac de Chéserys from Aiguilles Rouge above Chamonix in the French Alps is one of the most iconic places in the Alps, especially when the Milky Way is rising just above Mont Blanc.

Most of the peaks of the Mont Blanc massif are well above 13000 ft (4000 m). The huge peak to the left is L’Aiguille Verte (13524 ft, 4122 m) followed by the distant chain of Les Grandes Jorasses (13780 ft, 4200 m), the jagged peaks of the Aiguille des Grand Charmoz to Aiguille du Midi (12605 ft, 3842 m) and European Alps highest peak Mont Blanc itself (15781ft, 4810 m).
