Not every day is a ski day in the French Alps, especially when you are as injury-prone as me. A few weeks ago, on a much needed day off, a group of us headed to the small commune of Moûtiers, for a spot of lunch and some sightseeing. 

This photo essay is a bit of departure from the norm for me. There are no epic landscapes, no sweeping vistas and not a mountain or patch of snow in sight. This is a quick snapshot of the doors and windows of Moûtiers. 


Moûtiers: Moûtiers is a charming little commune in the Savoie region of the French Alps.  The small town is full of colourful and interesting buildings. This hotel caught my eye thanks to the distinctive mural. Photograph details: 


Moûtiers: This colourful doorway would not be out of place in Central America. If anyone is interested in purchasing a print, send me an email to This photograph was taken using an Olympus OMD-EM5


Moûtiers: The weather-beaten buildings have stood the test of time. Moûtiers is the access point for the Les Trois Vallées (The Three Valleys) ski area. Photograph details: 1/80 sec, F5.6, ISO400, 40mm. This photograph is available to buy here.


Moûtiers: The cracks in the walls, the battered down. Moûtiers is a town full of character. 


Moûtiers: The crooked shutters hang precautiously, but you get the feeling they’ve not budged in years.
