Winter Wave

Behind the Pic de Bure

This photo was taken several years ago during a Christmas visit to Sisteron. A Nimbus 3DT had been conveniently left there from the preceding September and when the day came it just had to be used. I would not, however, recommend Sisteron as a reliable winter soaring site; the sun never gets hot enough for thermals and the winds are generally too light for wave. But when the Mistral does blow, views like this are pretty much guaranteed.
