Télépherique de la Grande Motte an Tignes Le Lac
Shooting for the stars
The cable car of Grande Motte mountain peak descending from the the glacier in 3.556 m to the Panoramic restaurant in 3.032 m but visually hanging over the Lac de Tignes with the village of Tignes Le Lac in 2.100 m in the background.
To the left are people crossing the lake, Lac de Tignes, between the two villages, Val Claret and Le Lac.
To the extreme right is actually a third village Le Lavachet (now confluent with Le Lac only divided by a ski slope).
The red building to the lower left is Le Lagon – a well being and aqua-land with direct access to the lake in the summer.
The distance from the photographer to the cable car is approximately 1,1 km and approximately 7 km to the village – creating the compressed picture with somewhat distorted proportions.
