An image from my trip to the Alps in october. Autumn colors were at their peak, contrasting with blue sky, and first snows had fallen in the high mountains... a typical scene of the alps, seen from the beautiful sands of a dry river.
The first snows had fallen in the mountains and the autumn colors down the valley were at their peak, creating a great color contrast with the blue sky... At the end of the valley stands proudly the mount Olan, with its 3500m. Despite the cloudless sky, the beautiful colors and the snow in mountains allowed me to realize some pictures that couldn't be done in another place in my country. It was a very good experience to be in such a place at this precious time of the year!
Picture taken around christmas. There was still some snow on the ground and many fog in the woods. I was on a mountain facing the sunset and the sky was clear, so the very last orange lights could reach this place.. with all the fog and the snow, it created an incredible atmosphere a few minutes before sunset.
This shot was taken yesterday's morning in a magnificient valley.
We planned this trip just the day before as we knew there could be fog and cirrus clouds at sunrise time... indeed there was a sea of mist, and the cirrus clouds made a wonderful glowing light at dawn which tinted the mist, while the land was still dark. A magic moment spent in a preserved wild landscape.
Ephemeral and intense sunrise captured last week. A strong golden light pierced through the clouds for a very short moment, painting the whole land and sky in gold. The mist covering the mountains away made the scene even more surreal.
