The Mont Blanc massif is a mountain range in the Alps. It lies mostly in France and Italy and has eleven major independent summits. Each summit is over 4,000 metres (13,123 ft) in height. The massif is named after the Mont Blanc, which is the highest point in western Europe with its 4,808 metres of elevation (15,774 ft). The mountains in this photograph of this Mont Blanc massif in winter are The Mont Blanc, the Aiguille d’Argentière, the Aiguille du Chardonnet, the Grand Darray and Tour Noir.

The viewpoint used in this photograph is at an altitude of 3,100 metres (9,800 ft) near Orsières. Orsières is a small municipality in the Swiss Canton of Valais. Because of the higher elevation, you get a stunning broad view of the surrounding Alps. Additionally, the viewpoint is rather unique as it provides a birds-eye view of the Mont Blanc massif. As a consequence, it is almost as if you are photographing from an aeroplane there, as shown in this photograph of the Mont Blanc massif in winter.
