Wrapped in Clouds

This is a night shot, taken on March 8th 2012.

It's a 30 seconds exposure toward the summit of Mount Giusalet (3.313 m), while the bitter winter's wind forced the clouds to a sort of almost circular dance around the massive body of the mountain.

Something very beautiful and poetic to witness :-) despite the cold weather and the spoiled shots due to the strong wind.

The moon at 93% provided an excellent lighting to this side of the mountain.


Mount Giusalet (also called Signal du Clèry) is part of the Ambin group, a sub-range of the Cottian Alps. Just over the Col du Mont-Cenis area.
