How green was my valley (without vertical slats)



Had the architects of the ITER Headquarters decided not to install vertical slats on the west-northwest bay windows, this is the view that one would be able to take in.

On the exceptionally clear morning this panorama was taken, the visibility extended all the way to the Massif des Écrins, some 200 kilometres away.
