I was very surprised when, standing on Cima Belvedere admiring a fantastic sunrise in Dolomites, an orange light drew its way towards peaks and valleys, creating a unique situation. I decided a zoom composition with telelens, this is the result. Hope you'll like it.

Brenta Dolomites 18/07/2016

After some months of travels around Europe and italian cities im finally back to mountains, this time in the less known area of Trentino Dolomites: Brenta! In these days i had opportunity to try the new series of Ray Masters Camera Filters set and of course the brand new ND1000. After two years of partnership with Slovakian producers brand, I can say that a lot improvements led this company among the best producers of filters in the world. We can see the quality level in this shot, taken during sunrise.. Im very satisfied for the total absence of dominant, even with an added gnd 8 soft. Thank you Roman and Jaro !!

Soglio, a settlement nestled in the mountains of the canton of Graubünden near the Italian border, has been named Switzerland’s most beautiful village of the year.

This panoramic photography has been one of the most beautiful sunsets of 2014.
I think that these situations are the hardest moments for landscape photographers, we must be quick to find a valid composition with an important foreground or elsewhere we will not show on the frame a result equal to the Nature's spectacle.
Although I have traveled a lot in recent years, perhaps, the most exciting moment, is just next to home.

Lai Ghiacciato 30/08/2014

My way of living mountain is sometimes represented as a race against time, between night and day, making my way away from the paths, between ledges and steep gullies. I wake up early, even at 2 or 3 in the night and it could be that I am going back home when the world is still sleeping. Sometimes I go back very happy, in most of the occasions a little less. Mountain is sever, the weather is mainly bad.
But the effort doesnt count, it serves to strengthen us.
In this photo nature was hiding a nice gift for my birthday. I want to share it with you, to thank you for your great affection... and now I can dream for a new sunrise.

Burning View 30/09/2013

Every sunrise is a new speech, an emotion to be placed in the drawer of memories.
Sunrises are intense moments where you may need to be ready for a shot to remember, never miss the opportunity that may present us in front of our eyes.
I realized this shot in Dolomites, we can see Mount Paterno in the background. This is a 2,5 seconds of exposure-shot that let me capture a nice effect on the water surface.

Back to the Light 28/09/2013

These are the situations I love to meet in the mountains. Rays of colored light that paint, during the post-sunrise, the yellow autumn location preparing them for the winter.
This time, to embellish the scene, I decided to insert a human silhouette in the scene... it's me! I'm trying to convey to me this great morning light!

Fluid Clouds 20/08/2013

A strong wind is sweeping the snow fallen on the highest peaks of the group Masino-Bregaglia, between Switzerland and Italy.
The fierce movement recommend me to use a long exposure time when the first sunrise light paints the clouds, creating an interesting pattern into the sky.

Alpine Sunset 12/08/2013

Here in the Italian Alps the best time to enjoy a good sunset is when the north wind pushes impetuous and clouds are still placed in the right place relative to the direction of the last sun rays.
Then it's up to the photographer to be ready and in position for the 10 minutes of glorious light. In this case I preferred to give up everything I had in the pot and I run towards my favorite church, unfortunately without the tripod.

Alpine Waterfall 31/07/2013

The golden sunrise light has finished from a few minutes, so I decide to have a look around the lake, searching of some interesting compositions before continuing my daily trekking.
I found a beautiful waterfall, a little hidden, but also very dangerous to reach.
Nothing can stop me! So I decide to make "alpine waterfall" hanging on a wall with the equipment hooked to a natural, and very slippery, terrace!

The Alps Smell 26/07/2013

A shot taken ​​at the first light of the morning, with the sun illuminating only the tip of the snow-capped peak of the italian Rhaetian alps.
All this beauty to crown the real subject of my shot, one of the most beautiful flowers in the Alps, the rhododendron.

Cathedrals at Dusk 25/06/2013

Pizzo Cengalo and Pizzo Badile are two cathedrals of granite that from Bondasca valley (switzerland) soar into the sky at the border beetwen Switzerland and Italy. In this shot they are invaded by the sunset light in a windy day. In my experience I know that strong wind from north is very important for clear photography and give me more chance of coloured sunsets.

Sun is Coming! 15/05/2013

Autumn, with its yellowing meadows, is the perfect time to bring out the warm tones of the sun at sunrise and sunset. Choosing an ideal location is essential to achieve the desired goal. Programming the destination depending on the season, the position of the sun, the presence or absence of water reflecting surface, are points on which the photographer has to focus with the utmost attention.

Top of Europe 01/05/2013

The first time I saw Mont Blanc it was 20 years old and I was there to reach his summit. We ascent the top of Europe on a long journey of August, hiking and climbing in the glacier for more than 10 hours. We leaved Refuge Torino, in Italy, at midnight, direction Brenva Glacier. At 6 the sunrise reached us while we were climbing the imposing seracs between Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit. Finally at midday we were on the summit, ready to come back home!
Now I am here again but with my camera and 15 years more on my shoulders!

Last Light In Paradise 23/02/2013

As often happens in winter, I move my passes the day after a heavy snowfall.
So, after a good walk between soft white dunes, I am now in a paradise of snow. There is an incredible light, I'm trying to retain the last drop of warmth from the sun, sometimes in these moments it becomes difficult to suspend the emotions to try to make a reasoned shot.

Symphony of Light 08/02/2013

This evening everything is violet in my city.
During sunrise and sunset I often go in search of views that enhance the colors and the clouds, so in my photos never fails some water. In this case I am on the banks of the river Adda, one of the major rivers of Italy. In the background the bridge of Ganda, a distant memory of the Roman past in northern Italy.

Pian di Spagna 07/01/2013

Like many photographers, I love to hunt for sunsets.
The difficulties are to find the right situation and the right location. In many cases the difference in the result is made ​​by the equipment, for this I advice to use Neutral Density filters to correct the marked difference in brightness between the shadow areas and reflective areas, like the sky and the water.

Mufulè! 19/10/2012

In my photo-experience I love going in search for rare situations, as in this case, with an early snowfall that paints a colourful landscape. In addition, I want to get to the pond right when the ice is sinking its claws into the waters, which certainly is not repeated at the same time year after year. The reflection lasts a few days, then it will be winter again.

The Violet Landscape 23/09/2012

The last rays are blushing the top of the unique 4000 meter peak entirely in Italian territory: Gran Paradiso. The water from Lake Rosset, flowing down through the valley, creates a good plot into the landscape. So I decide to move among the stones in the panorama. The rest of the colour occurs due to a neutral density filter and offers me an unexpected scene.

This is the most incredible sunset that my eyes as a photographer and nature lover have ever admired in 15 years of photos-mountaineering. We go back to 2003, I was just starting out with digital equipment... I propose again today with the tools of modern post-processing. Alpe Granda, Rhaetian Alps Valtellina.

Spiral of granite 25/08/2012

Valmasino and its valleys are the reign of granite. I consider these landscapes one of the most spectacular views of the Alps. Valmasino has no peaks over 4000 meters but thanks to areal "Sentiero Roma" hiking trail the alpinist can soar at considerable altitudes. In this shot I tried to capture the signature of spiral clouds at sunset gently swaying over Punta Allievi in Valle di Zocca (Val di Mello natural park).
