NIKON D40X (18mm, f/10, 1/402 sec, ISO100) The Castello di Rivoli panoramic balcony length has been emphasized by the short lens, and the boy hurrying on it, together with the flare effect, adds something surreal to this image.
NIKON D40X (200mm, f/5.6, 1/400 sec, ISO100) My attention was captured by the difference among the white pole (squared section) and it’s shadow, where the “hat” is still thin, but the body is much more wide, like if the shadow would be the one of a different object.
NIKON D40X (32mm, f/7.1, 1/60 sec, ISO100) We decided to stop on the northern side of the Mont Cenis lake for a picnic dinner. The Variselle fort on the side of the dam had a small cloud frozen in the sunlight. I mounted quickly the tripod to get this HDR shoot which shows well the magic of that moment.
On the less known side of the Camargue (eastern side) there is a extraordinary location in the Salin-de-Giraud, a salt mine still in full activty. The water is really red, and the polarizer effect resulted in a even stronger color effect.
NIKON D40X (18mm, f/7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO100) Sunday afternoon at the Mont Cenis lake. The time passed among the different shoots to comepose this HDR image gave the clouds a three-dimensional appearance
NIKON D40X (95mm, f/6.3, 1/640 sec, ISO100) In the evening these clouds came up quickly in front of the sun. I just finished the dinner, and the camera was close to me. I took several images, this is one of them.
NIKON D40X (200mm, f/5.6, 1/500 sec, ISO400) I was going to work in the morning and I saw the Rocciamelone (Rochemelon) in the sunrise light. Luckily I had with me the camera, but overall the moon position was perfect (a pure case), so I stopped few minutes on the roadside to take this shoot.
NIKON D40X (130mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO100) These vineyard grape-vine rows in Monforte d’Alba (in the zone where the famous Barolo wine is produced) have a nice pattern effect. The telephoto lens helps to isolate them from the surroundings different shapes.
