"There are moments in every man's life, when he glimpses the
quote from James Hilton’s classic novel "Lost Horizon".
Night shot taken on September 14th 2011, at moonlight (phase 87%), from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3,538 meters - 11,603 feet), Italy.
In the total silence of the night, an infinite blanket of clouds is
wrapping the valleys and the mountains approximately 1.500 meters
These clouds are generally obscuring our sky, when we are on the plain, but, from here, above everything, it's just a pure spectacle... so simple, elegant and delicate.
Far away, on the right, you can see the lights of Turin, one of the largest cities in northern Italy.
If you are looking for some supersaturated colors, some fancy show at
all costs with thermonuclear reactions everywhere :-) I guess this
picture is not for you... instead if only for a moment you wish to
imagine yourself above the clouds, gazing for the moon at 3.500
meters, well, sincerely I hope this image can help.
