The Savoie region of France is located in the Alps, just south of Léman lake. In winter, the higher ground is covered in a thick layer of snow making even more beautiful the typical landscape of forest, lakes and mountains dotted with lovely wooden chalets. Skiing and hiking are both very popular, and every photographer will be delighted. Watch your fingers in those winter temperatures though !....
