Stormy weather

Walking in the Valentino’s park in Turin, I saw that the Monte dei Cappuccini church illuminated by a stratified  storm weather light. Just a bit of  HDR technique to show the impression I got from this view, and here it is.

Fishermen

Some fishermen were on the Ceresole Reale dam lake (yet quite empty in this season). I was fascinated by their positions and the few colors present: just the blue over the b/w. I had to wait until some cloud shadows came to help to avoid a too much white background. The result is an image with some fairy-tale setting.
