This painting captures a different angle of the Rocher de la Grande Balme. The process of creating this piece was enlightening, undergoing multiple iterations before I was content with the composition and the portrayal of the Alpine winter light.

The Rocher de la Grande Balme stands at an altitude of 2882 meters. Skiing down the Grande Balme couloirs is a popular challenge for experienced ski mountaineers.
