Glimpse the Eternal

    Newer Older

    "There are moments in every man's life, when he glimpses the eternal"
    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 below me...
    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.
