These beautiful photos were taken during the Désalpe 2014, when the herds descent onto St Cergue Crassier from the pastures. The beauty of this practice connects generations, and has been beautifully captured by the photographer along with the excitement of the whole event. Although the long transhumance is rare these days, this festival is very famous and popular among the locals who are proud of their heritage.
