Says photographer Vincent Munier: "At my arrival it's very dry and cold, minus 27 (-17°F)! The snow is grating under my shoes and my breath freezes in my nose. A mist came up and suddenly I heard the howling of foxes. What an atmosphere! I did not find any other animals this day, it was the silence of the snow that ruled."
