Wildlife photography spotting in the woods Fabulous Outdoors

It’s always a great emotion when a wildife photographer, animal and nature lover bumps into a wild animal in the woods.. occasionally it happens. However if you want to really get into wildlife photography and capture great shots, just wandering around through the woods is not enough.
Hunting is still quite a big thing over here in Europe unfortunately and therefore the animals have become really clever to increase their chances to survive.

Hiding is one of their best characteristics, so you have to be really patient and to train your eyes to spot them through the vegetation.
Another thing to consider is the direction of the wind, even when it’s just a little breeze, you want to make sure you are downwind to the animals if you want to have any chance in capturing them. Their ability of detecting a human being with their smell is way more powerful than ours. If you really want to increase your chances to see animals quite closely, you need to sit still and camouflage yourself through branches and leaves or, even better, to buy appropriate camouflage clothing.

Selle Italia Slr Superflow Bike Saddle Test @fabulousport

After experiencing a lot of pain using a bike saddle that wasn’t good for me, the Selle Italia Monolink, I’ve decided to test another model but still giving a chance to Selle Italia as a brand. This new one to test is the Selle Italia SLR Superflow and it’s shaped with a major cut-out to allow ventilation as you ride. From Selle Italia’ website: “SLR Superflow L. The optimal sitting position on the toughest saddle
The sophistication and strength of the SLR range are combined with the benefits of SuperFlow technology to maximise your riding experience with an optimal saddle position.”
I haven’t used it for too long, but I can already say that it’s a much better design and comfortable saddle to ride, particarly at the moment, been summer and at 30*C the ventilation really helps.

A Cyclist’s Journey – Fabulous Outdoors @fabulousport

People often ask why we ride ..what is it about cycling that at a first look, it seems just a painful long term agony on a bicycle to get nowhere..or something like that. The fact is, it’s hard to explain. At first, it can feel quite daunting, but with patience, it becomes easier and you feel satisfied and proud of what you’ve achieved so far. After your ride, a refreshing shower, a cool drink and a bite to eat and you suddenly feel invigorated and alive, as long as you haven’t done too much of course.

Little by little, your body will do all the adjustments needed to make you perform better, stay out for longer rides and be willing to do more of it. In this short clip, I wanted to pass on some of the feelings, the sounds and the landscapes of a cyclist’s journey. It’s a short clip, part of a bigger documentary project, coming out in future episodes.

Criterium du Dauphiné 2018 Cycling

Stage 7 of this year 2018 #CriteriumduDauphiné from Moutiers climbed it’s way to Bourg St. Maurice and to the #CormetDeRoselend in the #Beaufort Julian Alaphilippe of Quick Step Cycling Team was the first to pass by at this point.                                                                SUBSCRIBE TO FABULOUS SPORT OUTDOORS YOUTUBE CHANNEL

(Source: Criterium du Dauphiné’s website:”131 riders have started stage 7 in Moûtiers. Warren Barguil (Fortuneo-Samsic) was the first attacker at km 6 but he didn’t stay away more than two kilometres as the peloton reacted. Team Sky denied any attacker the possibility to ride away from the peloton before the ascent to the Cormet de Roselend. Julian Alaphilippe (Quick Step) was the first to take off in the climb. After he got caught, he managed to react to a later attack by Dani Navarro (Cofidis). David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), Edward Ravasi (UAE Team Emirates) and Antwan Tolhoek (LottoNL-Jumbo) accompanied the Spaniard before being rejoined by Alaphilippe and Pierre Rolland (EF Education First). Gaudu crested the Cormet de Roselend in first position.”) #Beaufortain beautiful valley with stunning landscape views overlooking the lake #Roseland a big water dam where the surrounding mountain peaks reflects in it.

The stunning Roselend Valley – Fabulous Outdoors

Located between Albertville and Bourg Saint Maurice, the Roselend Valley is a paradise for the lovers of the outdoors. The roads are nice and winding and they’re surrounded by fields of natural flowers, waterfalls and flowing streams of water.

In the middle of the valley sits the water dam with the stunning mountain peak overlooking at it. Whether you love mountain walking, hiking, road cycling or mountain biking or just lover of traveling through breathtaking landscapes, this is one place not to be missed.

This was captured in the Alps of France at the stunning Cormet de Roselend, with it’s water dam, waterfalls and breathtaking landscape.
Marmots are popular in the Alps and at this time of the year they are really nice and fluffy after the winter season.

WHERE TO STAY:

There aren’t many places to stay up in the valley, but just below getting to the top, there are a few villages that have accommodation available, one of which is Areches Beaufort. Once at the top however, overlooking the dam, is the Chalet de Roselend , a warm and welcoming family run hotel, situated with the most breathtaking views.      The Chalet de Roselend provides a very comfortable stay with breathtaking window and balcony views that make you really feel part of the stunning natural environment. The family owners and staff are very friendly and you feel like you’re at home immediately. The food is very tasty, with a set menu of local specialities and products from the region.                                                             


 (Wikipedia: “The Roselend Dam is an arch-buttress dam located 5 km (3 mi) east of Beaufort in the Savoie department of the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It is located just west and below the Cormet de Roselend mountain pass. The dam was designed by Coyne et Bellier and construction began in 1955. The reservoir began to fill in 1960, the power station was operational in 1961 and the dam complete in 1962. It was constructed for the primary purpose of hydroelectric power generation and supports the 546 MW La Bâthie Power Station.“)

Paola Gianotti’s has recently been riding all the stages of this 2018 Giro d’Italia to raise road cycling safety awareness.
We’ve produced videos simulating the most common mistakes and behaviours that cyclists and car drivers should try to avoid on the road.
These videos have been shown on the Italian National Television RAI 2 TV program, IL PROCESSO ALLA TAPPA, and we’ve also distributed stickers to apply on vehicles saying “IO RISPETTO IL CICLISTA” (I respect the cyclist’s on the road), encouraging people to display it on their cars. The idea of this project was born in conjunction with Marco Cavorso who is the father of Tommaso, a young cycling victim of a road accident which ended his life.
