Whenever I go back to my parents’ house in France and the weather is good enough, I always try to go and take pictures of chamois. This time, I decided to go down in the valley instead of waiting at the top of the mountain. The sun had not risen yet when I spotted this chamois trying to climb in the bush to get at leaves. I steadied the camera on the tripod and took the picture.
