Photographer's Note

War !

Smell of paraffin, flames and black smoke everywhere in the Valais.
« I love the smell of paraffin in the morning… Smelles like victory ! »

Basically two ways to fight the Ice saint’s day (cold snap in early spring) :

1) watering the fruits during the night in order to create an ice protection around the flower that would act like being inside an igloo and fight the frost (usually used on fruite trees) - Exemple in my gallery : http://fr.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Switzerland/photo1456308.htm;

2)straight paraffin in buckets to raise temperature.

Obviousely the use of paraffin in ecologically a non sens…smell, smoke etc. however used sometimes once or twice a year, it’s difficult to complain about it if you wish to harvest.

Picture : due to the heavy smoke I had to contraste the picture and play with the light.
