Photo of the Day #17: Pic du Midi d'Ossau of the Day
This photo is quite a special one for me. We lived in the south of France for a year. Pau is a smallish city practically at the foothills of the Pyrenees. When you are at the picturesque medieval center of the city, the Pyrenees cover the whole horizon, with the most distinctive peak being Pic du Midi d'Ossau. We visited the Pyrenees often and twice we hiked around the peak.
The whole path is full of spectacular sights, but what iced the cake for me was the relatively unpretentious stream that made a marvelous contrast for the tooth of the Midi d'Ossau.
