Pièrres de la Chartreuse (Stenen van de Chartreuse) toont de overweldigende schoonheid van het berggebied dat ruwweg tussen Chambéry en Grenoble in Frankrijk ligt. Het is een kalkstenen plateau met uitgestrekte en lege hoogtes, doorsneden door diepe dalen vol bos. Rotsblokken liggen verspreid door het landschap alsof reuzen er jeu de boules hebben gespeeld.
Het hart van het gebied is zeer geschikt om er te wandelen en hier en daar zelfs voor alpinisme, terwijl hanggliders aan de buitenzijde precies genoeg wind vangen voor thermiek.
En sinds eeuwen wonen er rust en eenzaamheid zoekende monniken wier indrukwekkende klooster geldt als het moederklooster der Karthuizer orde. | Pièrres de la Chartreuse (Stones of the Chartreuse) shows the outstanding beauty of the mountain range that sits roughly between Chambéry and Grenoble, France. It is a limestone plateau, with vast and empty heights, run through by steep and deep gulleys, covered in thick wood. Boulders are scattered around the landscape as if giants have been playing jeu de boules.
The heart of the range is an area well suited for hiking and occasional rock climbing, whereas hang gliders find the outer ridges catching just the right amount of wind for lift.
And monks seeking silence and solitude have been living here for ages, their impressive monastry serving as the centre of the Chartreuse order. | Tweetalig | Bilingual

About the Author

Dolf Middelhoff
dolfkalender Amstelveen, The Netherlands

After having been working as a graphic designer for almost thirty years, I retired into my hobby: photography. That ran a bit out of hand, as a result of which I started looking for means to have my photographic work published through exhibitions and books. Blurb gave me the opportunity I was looking for, photo books being more suitable for printing-on-demand than being printed in (large) quantities that eventually end up in second-hand bookstores.
