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 :-)

I started exploring landscape photography back in 2016 and one of the first photographs I ever took was of the tunnel view in Yosemite Valley. As I grew in experience as a landscape photographer, I wanted to capture the magic of Yosemite valley in a way similar to Albert Bierstadt did back in the 1800s. Unfortunately, the incredibly crowded nature of the national park managed to keep me away for the last 4 years.
This year, however, I decided to make my way up to the valley and try to find a composition that fit my vision. I did 2 trips to the national park over the span of a week, hiking and scouting during the day and driving back alone for 8 hours in the dark. This shot was taken during my second trip, timed just before the arrival of a winter snowstorm.
On the right of the shot, you can witness the Horsetail falls catching the beautiful golden light from the sun (more popularly referred to as Firefall). I have tried to balance the composition with the illuminated tree on the left which also provides a certain sense of scale for the rest of the scene. Let me know what you think.

Napali coast light by the sun filtering through storm clouds. This was taken from a helicopter off the coast in fairly choppy conditions. The winds were too strong to hover for any duration of time, but the pilot still did a great job of circling around for just long for me to get a couple of shots in. It definitely paid off when it comes to light.

An incredible sunset over Martin’s beach from earlier this month.
This sea stack is my #1 favorite from the Bay Area and this is, imo, my first good shot of it!

Old cottonwood grove photographed from above. To me, it almost looks like traces of lichen we find on rocks, highlighting the fact that patterns in nature repeat themselves in a variety of ways, and it's a lot of fun to go find them. This photo is a part of a series I am working on.
