The Hannibal Bivouac, at Col Clapier in the French Alps, during a lovely moment of enigmatic post-sunset light, with the moon observing high and silent in the sky.
There are so many photographic workshops around, we talk and write a lot, but the best advice I could give to a landscape photography neophyte is: “Stay overnight on site!”.

It’s evening, an almost epic-apocalyptic atmosphere envelops the mountains in front of me... The view from the Sbaron peak (2,223 m), in the Susa Valley, Italy, remains unchanged, the one admired in many other excursions of mine in that area: punta Croce Rossa ( 3,566 m), punta d'Arnas (3560 m), Uia di Bessanese (3,592 m), have always been there, but never have they spoken to me in such an intense and poetic way!
But that evening, during a stormy sunset, the magic of various atmospheric elements combined each other happened: bad weather at a distance, fogs, clouds, glimpses of light, generated an unforgettable ambience.
It is true that the subject chosen in a photo and a correct composition have their importance, but what I have found over the years is that the atmosphere that surrounds the whole is often even more relevant.
Technical issues aside, photographing means looking for the… intangible!

I've just reprocessed this photo from a few years ago, which is perhaps the shot that I keep most in my heart, so I really wanted to be sure to make the most of the wonder I saw that night.
A sea of clouds, exposed to the south-east, is lit by the moon (63%) rising in the east.
Yes, a huge mass of clouds slipping down steep rocky ridges from a height of about 2.900 meters.
Shot taken at night on September 6th 2012, from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m), Italy.
This is one of the most otherworldly photograph I've taken, thanks to the intrinsic magic of the night and to the privilege of being there, silently admiring this amazing moment.
This 195 seconds exposure, at 115mm on full frame, turned the slow passage of the clouds in a sort of "silky waterfall".
A few star trails are already visible, despite the exposure wasn't particularly long. I guess we all know as the consequences of Earth's rotation are more obvious when using a telephoto lens.
Intensity of colors, contrast and white balance are strongly faithful to the scene.
Main mountains here visible are the Uia Ciamarella (3.676), P.ta d'Arnas (3.560) and, at the horizon, the south-west face of Gran Paradiso (4.061), companion of many adventures :-)

The constellation of Orion dominates the night sky above the frozen peaks of the Rutor massif, Aosta Valley (Italy).
Looking towards the Planaval Pass (3,010 m) we can recognize the Flambeau peak (3,315 m), the Doravidi and the Chateau Blanc (3,408 m).
Photos that I’ve also used in the video I’ve dedicated to this gorgeous area, clearly visible on my Youtube channel at this link youtu.be/dgr599HK6M8
You are welcome to subscribe to my channel :-) I am constantly adding new material about the wonders I see on the Alps!

155-second exposure taken at night, in the upper Cenischia valley (Italy), halfway to Mount Giusalet, portraying the underlying Susa Valley with the lights of the same municipality glimpsed in an opening in the sea of clouds.
The west face of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m) is clearly visible on the left. Its top has a "bright dot", a detail that suggests the presence of someone on the summit (something I did too, spending many nights on that spectacular summit).
