Taken from the Loccia lake, at the beginning of the Belvedere glacier in Macugnaga (NW Italy), during a day where the weather changed several times, showing the sinuosity of the various snow layers. Another image which is inspired by the Ansel Adams works (obviously).

I was wandering in Haute Provence – South of France, when I found this beautiful mountain. It remebered me the famous “El Capitan” rock in Yosemite National Park (this one is smaller, anyway) and the Ansel Adams images, so I stopped and found a good location where take this shoot, of course in black and white like the Master.This is a tribute to him and his art.
