Aiguille translates to Needle in French. This is a photo of the moon rising above the Aiguille de Blaitière with the Aiguille du Grépon and Les Grands Charmoz on the left of the frame. These peaks make up some of the famous Aiguilles which overlook Chamonix and have a long and storied climbing history.
