The highest European mountain consecrated in the largest giga panorama ever made at 3500 meters: this is our experience into the white of the Mont Blanc.
A sunny bright day on the snowy peaks of Mont Blanc: 3500 metres height, minus 10 Celsius degrees, one hour walk on the glaciers for two weeks shooting to get over a thousand pictures.
