Shot taken on June 28th 2012, after moonset, from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3,538 m), Italy. Yes, a remote location indeed.
The infinite is my favorite subject, since I can't go into deep space, I am constantly searching it here, on Earth...
The point of view of landscape photography is often from the plain toward an higher subject (like a mountain), this happens most frequently for obvious practical issues. That's why I've always dreamed of pictures taken from most rarest view points.
This is definitely among my favourite night shots I've taken so far, just for one simple reason: the encounter of several natural spectacles! Here we have the Milky Way cutting the night sky in direction south, so it is perfectly aligned with the distant pyramidal summit of Monviso (3.841 m). This alignment, Milky Way -> Monviso, occurs at the beginning of every summer night, then gradually the Earth moves eastward, and the starry sky obviously to the west. However, the particularity of this wonderful night was the presence of an infinite bank of clouds, approximately 800 meters below the summit where I was spending the night... the lights of the valley below turned this mass in motion in a sort of "primordial ocean".
As usual in night photography, the camera was able to capture far more details than I could see with my eyes, anyway this has been one of the most spectacular scenery I have ever seen
Sunrise barely existed on this morning so I was thankful for the small part in the sky, even if it was all of only 50 seconds. By the time I recomposed it vanished, and the little precipitation that helped me out with the sun beams had no sooner later reached me.

With joints screaming and legs aching from a long hike up another fourteener, I began to make my way towards the Upper South Colony Lake. Gorgeous low hanging clouds accompanied by a setting sun began to set the mood for some potential shots.
I decided to start the shin dig by focusing on the tail waters spilling out from the lake. With sun kissed peaks supplying a backdrop, I would have had to of been crazy not to focus on the beautiful flowers within the small stream.
What an amazing place this was and I cannot wait to return for a strict photo trip.
One from the series of the study of the sun. It actually fascinates me how sun changes the landscape in the early morning, so I try to capture it and show the various moods it can set. Who knows, maybe it makes a person or two wake up earlier in an effort not to miss this magical part of the day
A wonderful sunset that happened a week ago. I feared the sun would not appear, but things finally cleared up and some light briefly pierced the edge of the clouds and lit up the amazing shapes in front of me.

White Branch Falls is located near Proxy Falls, near McKenzie Bridge, Oregon. While not as spectacular as Proxy, this is still worth a visit. It is located on private property at the White Branch Youth Camp, but visitors are welcome.
NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.
A very, very wide view of this extravagantly beautiful waterfall. Multiple shifted shots merged, creating something to the effect of a 150 mp mosaic. Amazingly, I didn't have to fix anything with respect to the water not lining up, etc.
On a different note, bringing a technical camera here is a very bad idea. . . the focusing/workflow is so slow, it's almost impossible to shoot without getting water on the lens. It's very, very tedious, while shooting this with a DSLR would have been rather simple.

In the land of the sun A black pearl Shines near the sea
Look at the water With eyes as big as the heart With a heart as big as the ocean
The red of the setting sun The pink of dawn Take their gaze far away Even the white nights Winter in europe Water is a mystery of Aphrodite
The blue evening comes to the tropics And the stars unveiled Light reflections Across the the river sea Burning like fire Longing of the future The ocean cries A universe of passion Wind and clouds arrive Through the eyes of a black pearl Tears of pure love start falling Water is a mystery of Aphrodite....
A rather still Moat and a vertical flip, gives you this. The back of the Bishop's Palace, Wells.
The Palace Chaplin has asked me for a large print of this, A1 in size, so he can have memories of the Palace when he leaves, as he's coming to the end of his tenure there. He says it has a Wuthering Heights feel to it.
This is a panorama made up of 5 images that spanned this waterfall. I like how it encompasses the viewer and has the water constant throughout. This is a second shot to the one I submitted the other day, (yell at *11thDimensionPhoto if you don't want to see it)
So I'm saying goodbye to the seas, lads, saying goodbye to the sea, Goodbye to the fishing, goodbye to the nets; the nearer it comes, lads, the harder it gets; When you're sailing her out for the grounds, lads, you'll be sailing her out without me, There's a lump in me throat as I'm burning my boats and I'm saying goodbye to the sea.
Edit: Hi there! This image is currently getting thousands of views and I don't know why, if you found this image through a link could you please send me a comment or message with a link to the share of the image. I am just really curious and want to see!
Another picture from the coast during the sunray morning. By this point you should know that I have a lot of control over the color in my images. I can make a rather blue morning look sunny, or in this case out of this world. I just started releasing videos of my photo editing here: www.youtube.com/user/gesasage8... There will be one video out a week, my releases will always be on Thursdays. Give me a watch or subscription on Youtube or DA in order to hear when my releases come out.
This photo of the Matterhorn taken on a cold evening in October conveys a mystic atmosphere. After the first snowfall, the Stelli Lake is slightly snow-covered but still ice-free. The long exposure captures the moving clouds above the mountain tops of the Valais Alps.
