In this picture most of the weather and lights can be found: sun, darkness, rain, clouds, blue sky, natural light, artificial light. All in a single picture: it is not so usual find all them together. Isn’t it beautiful?
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).
2012 winter came late, but it was cold and with a lot of snow. I took this picture when snow was falling and the light was low. I like the division in multiple levels, giving an idea about the image depth.
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.
NIKON D40X (200mm, f/36, 1/2 sec, ISO100) Cold, ugly, with snow and rain. These are the adjective which came up to my mind describing this day. Looking the gray sky I saw anyway these roof tiles, with their quiet order which doesn’t care of the weather. I like their strong appearance, and their classical color. The result is this graphical and somehow abstract (again!) image.
It was a uncertain a day with uncertain weather. SometiNIKON D40X (65mm, f/5, 1/400 sec, ISO100) mes the sun won, sometimes not. I was looking at the sky often to check what was going to happen. Looking at this corrugated iron rooftp (underneath it there are cooling equipments) I was thinking that, maybe, isolating it from other building parts, just keeping it and the sky, could be a good idea. So I took the photo, and this image is the result, quite surreal. I’m almost sure that most viewers first impression is“what he hell is this?”, and yes, this is what happens when you concentrate the image just on a small part of what is in front of you. Without this “extreme” framing I believe that nobody (me first) was noticing that strange metal roof coverage. Technically speaking, I tried with several tricks to avoid the Moiré effect, but with very little results, so I leaved it as is.
