Snow Dunes at Moonlight

Another very simple example of high mountain minimalism, showing, among other things, great similarities with the desert.


Shot taken at night near Lake Agnel (2.300 m), Gran Paradiso National Park (Italy).


The moon, top left, illuminates the essential forms of the snow dunes (where, without snow shoes, if was possible to sink up to my hips). In the top right you can see planet Jupiter, whose brightness is never dimmed even by the full moon (by the way, Jupiter is also clearly visible from our cities).

This photo also has an additional right-side illumination, a lighting from the Lake Agnel dam.

But this dual illumination (moon - beacon) will be more evident in other photos I'll post.
