«Les paysages découpés et grandioses des montagnes célestes du Huang Shan ont constitué (et constituent encore) l’un des épicentres, sinon l’épicentre, de l’art chinois. Depuis des millénaires, ils ont été immortalisés par des générations de peintres et de poètes. Fouler ces pentes mythiques était pour moi un rêve. Féru d’art asiatique, c’est l’esprit plein d’estampes, de brumes et de pics vertigineux, que je suis arrivé, un jour de février, au pied de ces montagnes sacrées…»

«Auvergne in her autumn and winter dress: Emmanuel Boitier’s photographs, silent and contemplative though they are, speak directly to us. Born of a sensitive mutual scrutiny between a photographer and a singular land. At the time when nature’s last lovely fires are burning low; the time to put her strange surface to bed under the white blanket.

And the pen of the novelist as advance guard, by turns dizzying, nostalgic, even teasing, to introduce what is hidden behind the superficial appearance of these images: character, poetry, memories, secrets and paradoxes of Auvergne. To lead us, too, into the heart and soul of Auvergne, and into the Auvergne of the heart and soul.»

«Months were invented by the humans… but has nothing to do with the various natural weather seasons of our planet. Nature, itself, doesn’t care about days or months, neatly lined up in calendars. There are only two seasons: the one where flowers bloom and trees grow and the other when nature seems to be awaiting, sometimes looking submissive or at times furious.

It is that very moment in time, too often called the (bad) season that EARLY SNOW is on the front of our door. It starts with the falling leaves, the vanishing mist, the piercing frost and nipping cold, the freezing wind and the first snow-flakes. It is a tribute to the eternal story of Fall turning into Winter.

EARLY SNOW is divided into three chapters: the fire of the fall (aki no hi), the early snow (hatsuyuki) and he whiteness (shiro). Through its landscapes this work studies the natural passage of seasons with its slowness and languor, accompanied with the sudden changes, the fiery storms that cover the golden foliage with its white snow at the heart of winter.»

La première partie est assez effrayante et sait nous tenir en haleine. La suite me voit plus réservée, avec l'entrée en scène d'une enquête policière plutôt bien menée, mais assez classique. C'est un autre rythme, une nouvelle façon d'aborder cette lecture, qui heureuseme. Read full review

François-Marie Luzel ( 6 June. 1826 - 26 February. 1895 ), often known by his Breton name "Fañch an Uhel" [He signed his name as "Francès-Mary an Uhel" in the "Les Chants de l'épée" (1856), although Joseph Ollivier, in his 1943 preface to "Ma C'horn-Bro" made precise that his family was known by the name "An Uhel" and that he himself used many different forms of his name for different poems. ]. was a French folklorist and Breton-language poet.

Luzel was born in the manor of Keramborgne, which then formed part of the commune of Plouaret (which, nowadays, is part of the commune of Vieux-Marché. His father, François, and his mother, Rosalie le Gac, were peasants, but Luzel had a peaceful childhood in his home town, making friends (including the future painter Yan Dargent, and attending many veillées, which were traditional parties held after dark where the villagepeople would assemble and pass the long winter nights in one another's company, often listening to ancestral stories. Thanks to his uncle, Julien-Marie Huërou, he was able to go to the Royal College of Rennes, where Huërou taught.

School and a change of direction

There, he met the future historian Arthur de La Borderie, and Émile Grimaud, who became the sub-editor of the Revue de Bretagne and of Vendée. As a young man, he aspired to be a naval doctor, and went to study to such an end in Brest. Instead of becoming a naval doctor, he went down a different route towards being a professor, but could not find a fixed post, which made his life rather nomadic. An encounter with Adolphe Orain, a folklorist of Haute-Bretagne, gave him some direction, and, with the support of Ernest Renan. he managed to obtain from the Minister for State Education the means to go search for old literary texts in Basse-Bretagne. He succeeded in collecting a huge corpus of songs, tales, legends and plays, enough to make several books. The majority of the contents of this abundant collection came from Tréguier and the province of Brittany that surrounds it, Trégor. Marguerite Philippe (in Breton, Marc'harit Fulup) is amongst most known of the people whose folklore Luzel collected. After publishing a book including some of his own poetry in 1865, entitled Bepred Breizad, he published in 1868 a selection of the works that he collected, under the name "Chants et chansons populaires de la Basse-Bretagne"' (Melodies and Songs from Low-Brittany.) There were several volumes of this work, including a volume dedicated to "Gwerziou" (Laments) and "Soniou" (Songs.) A year later, a follow-up of sorts appeared, entitled "Contes et Récits populaires des Bretons armoricains" (Popular Tales and Stories of the Armorica n Bretons).

Quarrel over Barzaz Breiz

At the 1872 Congress of the Breton Association at Saint-Brieuc. Luzel read a text that he had prepared, in which he raised suspicions about the authenticity of the songs included in the " Barzaz Breiz ", which was published by Théodore Hersart de la Villemarqué 33 years earlier. A public controversy ensued and his speech, which was rejected by the Breton Association, was heavily-edited. The controversy surrounding Barzaz Breiz would last for more than a century. In 1960, the Breton scholar Francis Gourvil wrote a doctorate thesis in which he maintained that Luzel was right. In 1989, the musician and linguist Donatien Laurent demonstrated, in a thesis based on the manuscripts of La Villemarqué, that even if the author had revised the melodies, he still nearly always relied upon the versions that he himself had collected or transcribed.

Journalist, justice, and archivist

Luzel's career trajectory changed yet again in 1874, when he started writing political editorial s for the Republican newspaper, l'Avenir de Morlaix, where he would work until 1880. He was later made a justice of the peace in Daoulas.

In 1881, he found stable work as a curator of Quimper's Departmental Archives of Finistère. There, he encountered Anatole Le Braz. who would become his disciple of sorts and would continue his work in finding stories and making an inventory of pieces of Ancient Breton theatre.

Luzel was elected as a Republican to the municipal council of Quimper, and was later, in 1883, made Vice-President of the Archeological Society of Finistère, a group in which he participated for quite some time, and which La Villemarqué founded.

In 1888, Luzel asked Ernest Renan to intervene in the Ministry of Public Instruction, so that his friend, Anatole Le Braz, could teach Breton at the Quimper Lycée outside school hours, which Le Braz offered to do for free. In his letter to Renan, he stated that he 'would like that, in all our primary schools that Breton children attend, an hour or two were consecrated to teach them Breton by heart and to sing Breton songs and pieces of poetry to instill patriotism in them.' Later in the letter, he referred to the Breton language as being 'the national language.' This request would be flatly refused by the Ministry.

On the 1 January. 1890. Luzel was made knight of the Legion of Honour. an accolade that he received from the hands of his old rival, La Villemarqué, in a ceremony that took place on the 30 January of that year. Seemingly reconciled, the pair died in the same year, 1895.

Skil Brum: Climbing, Hiking & Mountaineering: SummitPost

Skil Brum Overview

Skil Brum 7,360m lies above and beyond the seracs of upper Savoia Glacier. It is a beautiful peak located close by the World second highest peak, K2 in the Godwin Austin Glacier area. The other peaks standing close to Skil Brum are Savoia Peak 7,286m, Angel Peak 6,858m, Praqpar 7,156m, Broad Peak 8,047m. and of course the mighty K2 8,611m.


Skil Brum from Broad Peak Camp III (c) 1957 Fritz Wintersteller

First ascent by Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller on June 19, 1957 .

Text based on Bill Buxton :
To make this expedition all the more remarkable, Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller followed their ascent of Broad Peak with a flash ascent of a nearby mountain, Skil Brum (7,360 m), which they climbed in pure alpine style.

Starting from base camp at 4,900 metres, they crossed ten miles of the Godwin-Austen and Savoia glaciers in ten hours and climbed up a snow slope on skis to camp at about 6060 meters. On June 19th, they ascended in twelve hours the remaining 1300 meters on the south west face of the summit, first on hard snow and then in deep powder and then returned to their high camp. They descended the next morning on skis.

From base camp to base camp, the ascent of Skil Brum was done in 53 hours! What an extraordinary feat of self-discipline, endurance and sheer determination.

From all of the above, this 1957 expedition was a wonderful precursor of the new style that what was to follow, such as that exemplified in the climbs of Messner and Habeler.

The alpine style is a variant whereby the mountain climbers do without supplemental oxygen, high altitude porters, and attachment of fixed ropes and camps. Instead, mountains are climbed like a mountain in the alps. The entire equipment as well as the tent are carried and packed up on the next morning again. This style became well-known and popular with Reinhold Messner, when he climbed Mount Everest without oxygen equipment in 1978, together with Peter Habeler. Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller were the first who demonstrated pure alpine style at the successful Austrian Broad Peak expedition in 1957. Skil Brum was the premiere of alpine style. Golden Jubilee

A small Austrian expedition achieved a remarkable climb in the year 1957. The first ascent of Broad Peak 8047m was planned and done without the help of high altitude porters, without artificial oxygen, and without base camp support. All 4 members of the expedition reached the summit on the same day, the 9th of June 1957.

The month of June 2007 will be the month of the Golden Jubilee 2007 of Broad Peak First Ascent. Events will be carried out in Austria and Pakistan. The "Night of the First Ascent" takes place in the Congress Centre of Salzburg, Austria on Saturday, June 9, 2007 as of 6:00 pm.

The "Night of the First Ascent" is organized by Broad Peak Club in close cooperation with the Oesterreichischer Alpenverein. We present a collection of Broad Peak 8047m Summit Pictures. The program includes German and English contributions of some of the world's best mountaineers as guest speakers, presenting slide- and multi-media shows, vintage films, new books, and an exposition of the original expedition equipment. The summiteers of the 1957 expedition, Kurt Diemberger, Fritz Wintersteller, and the liaison officer, Qader Saeed have confirmed their participation.

We say farewell to the Broad Peak Jubilee Expedition of Gerfried Göschl and his team. Donations and proceeds of the event go to the Göschl Family Aid for Pakistan and to Doug Scott's Community Action Nepal in support of school projects under the patronage of Rotary International.

Nine Austrians have climbed five of the world's 14 highest mountains for the first time, among them three were members of the Edelweiss Club Salzburg (Kurt Diemberger, Marcus Schmuck, and Fritz Wintersteller). The other six Austrians are Hermann Buhl, Josef Jöchler, Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch, Herbert Tichy und Johann Willenpart.

The Edelweiss Club Salzburg decorates the event with giant oil paintings of Broad Peak and will open the legendary Edelweisser Bar that usually opens only one day per year on the last Friday in January.

Getting There

Until Skardu one can drive about 24 hours on KKH or fly to Skardu in 1 hours. From Skardu there are two ways to get there: (1) Baltoro Glacier via Askole Village is the normal route or (2) by the Gondogoro Pass via Hushe Village. Same two ways are possible at the time of return from the mountain.

In 1957 Schmuck and Wintersteller started from Broad Peak base camp up the Godwin Austen glacier to the base of Skil Brum.

May to July is the best time to climb Skil Brum as it is also the best time for the other mountains in the area.

History How Skil Brum Was Named


Fritz Wintersteller on the way to Skil Brum (c) 1957 Marcus Schmuck

The peak was unnamed when Marcus Schmuck and Fritz Wintersteller climbed it for the first time. Qader Saeed, the liaison officer of the Austrian Broad Peak Expedition could give permission for an unnamed peak and Fritz Wintersteller made the first cartographic drawings and handed them over to the military after the climb.

Marcus Schmuck . the leader of the Austrian OEAV Karakoram Expedition 1957, wanted to name the peak "Peak Dyhrenfurth" in honor of GO Dyhrenfurth, who provided key information to him during the planning phase of the Austrian First Ascent expedition to Broad Peak 8,047m. Marcus Schmuck followed Dyhrenfurt's suggestion to climb Broad Peak on the West ridge as described the book, Baltoro ein Himalaya Buch. GO Dyhrenfurth, Benno Schwabe & Co. Basel 1939.

The OEAV (Austrian Alpenverein) confirmed that the peak should be called "Peak Dyhrenfurth" and at the same time the OEAV declined the 2nd suggestion to call it "Peak Austria" .

But another name was finally decided by the Government of Pakistan and the peak was named "Skil Brum".

The Surveyor General of Pakistan wrote to Fritz Wintersteller on 16 June 1958 a letter:

"Dear Sir, I am to inform you that the new peak in Baltore region W.S.W. of K-2 Peak, approximate height of 24,500 ft. discovered by the Austrian Karakoram Expedition in 1957 has been named by the Government of Pakistan as "SKIL BRUM". With best wishes. Yours sincerely, (M.Z.A. QURESHI) for Surveyor General of Pakistan."

History of Austrian Mountaineers

Nine Austrians have climbed five of the world's 14 highest mountains for the first time, among them three were members of the Edelweiss Club Salzburg (Kurt Diemberger, Marcus Schmuck, Fritz Wintersteller). The other six Austrians are Hermann Buhl, Josef Jöchler, Fritz Moravec, Josef Larch, Herbert Tichy und Johann Willenpart.

Austrian Mountaineers - 8,000m Mountains First Ascent

Hermann Buhl - Nanga Parbat 1953, Broad Peak 1957
Kurt Diemberger - Broad Peak 1957, Dhaulagiri I 1960
Josef Jöchler - Cho Oyu 1954
Josef Larch - Gasherbrum II 1956
Fritz Moravec - Gasherbrum II 1956
Marcus Schmuck - Broad Peak 1957
Herbert Tichy - Cho Oyu 1954
Johann Willenpart - Gasherbrum II 1956
Fritz Wintersteller - Broad Peak 1957

Thus, Austria became the most successful Nation in storming the Himalayas and achieved a high recognition and reputation in the Alpine world.

The Association of Mountaineers Edelweiss Club Salzburg has been founded in 1881 and has currently about 60 members. They meet every Thursday in Salzburg, Austria.

Red Tape

Like all peaks in the Baltoro region, this peak also requires advance application and permit is subject to authorization by the tourism office. An Army Liaison Officer is to accompany the expedition as Skil Brum falls in the so called restricted zone. All the rules and regulation for peaks like Chogolisa, Broad Peak, K2 will apply on this peak too.

In 1957, Qader Saeed . the Pakistani liaison officer of the Austrian Karakoram Expedition, could give permission for an unnamed peak and the Director General of the Surveyers Office thanked Schmuck and Wintersteller for clearing a white spot on their military map. The Government of Pakistan named the peak Skil Brum about one year later in June 1958 .

Literature

Text from the manuscript of Richard Sale: Broad Peak. Richard Sale, Carreg Ldt, UK 2004, ISBN 0 9538631 1 5

On 18 June Schmuck and Wintersteller leave Base Camp at 4am, cross the Godwin-Austen Glacier and then bear left to follow the Savoia Glacier. At the point where the Praqpa Glacier meets the Savoia, they put on skis and followed the Praqpa. After a rest to escape from the strong sun at midday they climbed to the col at the head of the glacier. The col lies between two 7000m peaks: they decided to attempt the one on the right and climbed up to about 6000m where they found a camp site well sheltered from both avalanches and the wind. They were in their sleeping bags by 5pm, cooking from them until 6pm when they tried to sleep.

The following day the two men start early. It is a beautiful day, but very cold. They climb up steep (40° - 50°) slopes, sometimes on ice, sometimes on soft snow which threatens to avalanche. For once Wintersteller is having a bad day and Schmuck does most of the trail breaking. At 4pm they reach a pointed summit which Wintersteller’s altimeter measures at 7420m (the peak is later surveyed at 7360m) where they erect a stone cairn. From the top there is a fantastic view of Broad Peak, which looks very steep, and of Paiju Peak and the Mustagh Tower. They have climbed the highest peak of the Savoia. At that time the peak was unnamed but is later named Skil Brum by the Pakistani Government. On the descent Schmuck is overwhelmed by an attack of high altitude cough, coughing so hard he is sick into the snow. But even that cannot extinguish the sheer joy of the ascent, a joy which shines through his account of the day - ‘Slogging down in deep snow, then frozen snow and an ice channel. A great strain. I jump over a crevasse then ski down to the tent - marvellous! 19.30 at the tent, cooking in candlelight. The cooker falls over, but we aren’t bothered, just pleased and happy at our success. About 9pm to bed! Very cold!.’

The joy extends into the next day, when, after a breakfast of sea buckthorn juice and Ovaltine - ‘We descend with unusual speed and much less effort over the frozen snow between the crevasses. We stop several times in order to calm our breathing, we are skiing at 6000m after all! And with 15kg on our backs. I have a fall and as a result the Thermos is destroyed. We deliberately swing down in beautiful curves to the Savoia glacier, and after a short rest we continue schussing down on our short skis. I would have loved to call out in joy but during the descent I didn’t have enough air. At the beginning of the system of crevasses we leave a tent, air beds, food, fuel and cooker so we won’t have to carry it from Base Camp on a future visit, then continue descending. At one point we have to carry our skis across a crevasse, but otherwise we wangle our way to the Base Camp. We reach it at 8.30’ (Schmuck).

It will also uphold its decision to waive off royalty on up to 6,500 metre high peaks and charge only 10 percent of the total royalty on mountains in Gilgit, Chitral and Ghizar for the year 2006.

The ministry announced the decision through three different notifications. The first notification maintained that the 50-percent reduction in royalty for climbing mountains above 6,500 metre of height in the Northern Areas would continue.

Teams up to seven members fall directly under the relaxation entitlement, but have to pay $1,000 for each extra member to climb the world’s second highest peak K-2 (8,611 metre high), $ 750 for each extra member to climb any of the four above-8,000-metre-high peaks - Nangma Parbat (8,125 metre), Gasherbrum (8,068 metre), Broad Peak (8,047 metre) and Gasherbrum-II (8,035 metre).

Lastly, charges of $250 for each additional member on mountains ranging from 7,500 to 8,000 metres of height, $150 for 7,001 to 7,500 metre heights and $100 for 6500 to 7,000 metre heights will also be upheld.

    This text is a guide to the vast range of jewellery produced in Europe and America from the 19th century to the present.

    For wine lovers contemplating a trip to Bordeaux - or just trying to decide on a great bottle of this popular red - this fully revised and updated edition of David Peppercorn's popular guide to the region will provide all the help needed. Comprehensive and authoritative, it includes the area's best wines and chateaux - more than 1000 in total. Divided into the region's appellations, the directory then goes in an easy to follow A-to-Z format within each region. Star ratings point out quality recommendations, symbols show which wines are drinking well now and which will keep, and a "v" indicates those wines that offer particularly good value for the money.

    The wide range of techniques, shapes, colours, and texture in glassware of the '50s and '60s is exceptional, and provides tremendous opportunities for collectors of every taste. It is an ideal area for the new collector as pieces are still readily available and affordable. This easy-to-use and practical guide covers all the major manufacturing centres - Finland, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Britain, and the USA. With the emphasis on collecting throughout, "Miller's Glass of the '50s & '60s: A Collector's Guide" offers an opportunity to explore the potential of this period.

    The traditional cellar record book was conceived in an age when the range of wines was definitely finite: perhaps only 20 or 30 wines if you were lucky. Its object was simply to keep track of the number of bottles consumed.
    This handsome volume, designed by Hugh Johnson to be as practical as possible, offers advice on building a wine collection and suggests a system to ensure that all stored wines are opened and enjoyed at their very best. Ample space is devoted to clearly laid out pages of "Cellar Notes" for recording the essential details of every wine, as well as personal notes.

    How have wineries become so much more than mere production facilities, bringing wine to life in some of the world’s most striking architecture? Award-winning wine writer Peter Richards has traveled and researched extensively to uncover the
