The Eternal Rivers

Blog      Personal Website      Facebook

As in all my photographic work, I have obviously a deep interest in portraying the worldly elements but, I must say, especially when they are in connection with what goes... far beyond.
Hence the title "The Eternal Rivers", as the Milky Way here seems to find continuity in the clouds of our tiny planet.

Photograph taken in Val Cenischia (Italy/France), shortly after midnight on June 17th, 2018, thanks to the union of two shots taken with different exposures.
I saw that the mountain ridge in front of me was caressed by slowly floating clouds, so I immediately understood that in order to get a dreamy-looking scene I would have to dedicate a quite long exposure to the clouds + the classic "30sec" exposure for the starry sky.
So I did, and my beloved clouds turned out like rivers of cream and the stars perfectly spot-like. Result obtained! :-)
The clouds, however, also benefit here from some lunar lighting, as the moon (27%) had just set. Enough light reverberation to still offer some three-dimensionality to the earthly things without compromising the darkness that the Milky Way requires.

It is beautiful. The work reminded me of the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The same beautiful scenery with mountains.
