Notebook entry: Wednesday 10 August 2005. Alpes Maritime Clues de Barles, near Digne. Pressed biscuit thin perpendicular ribs of rock, Lined one after another like a vertical mille feuille pastry sharp and incised worn into a deep smooth cleft snaking hundreds of feet upwards towards sky. Fine, thin ice cream wafers of rock fanning out from hillside. Later: massive storm.
Notebook entries: Monday 11 July 2005 10.30am. High on top of Petit Vignmale in French Pyrenees. Exposed drops to right and high on left above glacier. Clear sun, cool breeze. Rock, hard and folded – thrust upwards. Startling red layers abutting grey.
