Jokulsarlon. Toujours cette glace et ce ciel en feu... Avec l'eau tel un miroir aux reflets irisés et métalliques, comme si elle avait absorbé toute la lumière que le soleil envoie pour faire fondre ces icebergs; et nous la recrachait à la figure.
Et un petit bout de glace bien flou qui s'enfuie à tire d'aile (enfin c'est l'impression qu'il me donne, comme ça)
We are running into the ascent of a small mossy moutain over Thorsmork... as madmen, I think.
We follow a dog, we get lost in a small wood of small trees...we find our way, following the same small dog. Or maybe it's the opposite, I don't know. We climb, we jump, ... we are on the summit.
The cold disppears with the crazy view... the river is beautiful, reflecting the midnight sun. A sun bleeding, fighting with the clouds and the night. The light is pink, soft, pallid. And strong in the same time.
We are surrounded by hills covered with green moss and snow. We walk through this endless desert crossing river without bridges, quicksand and strange stones arrangement. This one should be the carcass of prehistoric creature.
It's very late night and I am not very willing to write. This is one of the many panoramic shots I took during my latest trip to the mountains, this autumn, before the snow. I was very lucky, since I found an extremely clear day, with almost no clouds. The path starts at one of the bends climbing towards Passo Giau, then it reaches Forcella Giau, and, after about an hour, Forcella Ambrizzola. Then the track slopes downwards until it meets Rifugio Palmieri. We stopped there that day, because it was quite late and cold.
Here's another shot from the now famous hike to Rifugio Palmieri. I got struck by the majesty of the mountains while walking in the "high valley" (I don't know if a translation even exists) on our way to the hut (that is "rifugio"), and by the blue of the sky, even though it appears almost black because of the polarizer. Anyway I find dark skies very...stirring, in a strange way: maybe because they make me feel nearer to space, thence to the stars....or some psychological implications of this kind or whatever. Astonishing places, anyway.
