Castle in the Clouds by RobertoBertero
Castle in the Clouds
Mount Averau (2.647 m) observed from Lagazuoi (2.778 m), Dolomites, emerging in the evening like a promontory challenging the power of the ocean... except that here the "sea" is composed by clouds and the Averau, cherished by the sunset light, looks more like a mythological golden castle rather then a mountain.
Light Through the Woods by RobertoBertero
Light Through the Woods
The light filtering through the woods always manages to make picturesque even the most simplest spots.
Anyhow, the merit to this moment also depends on the presence of a slight mist.
Moonlit Landscape by RobertoBertero
Moonlit Landscape
"Backstage shot" taken during a full moon night spent admiring and photographing the sharp-pointed south face of the aiguille Dibona (3.131 m), Écrins National Park, France.
Here the moonlight had not yet reached the area of my tent, so I took the opportunity to capture some interesting play of light & shadow along the rugged landscape.
Kissed by the Full Moon by RobertoBertero
Kissed by the Full Moon
The unique shape, almost sci-fi style, of the Aiguille Dibona (3.131 m), Écrins National Park, France, with its south face here entirely illuminated by the full moon, until its base, where it is easy to recognize the refuge du Soreiller, still in the shade.
I've taken also a few daylight pictures... but the pureness, I would call it candor, of the moonlight provides to this "Martian" wall an incomparable ascetic charm.
Lost in a Dream by RobertoBertero
Lost in a Dream
A look above the Viù Valley, admired during the night from the summit of mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m), Italy.
The distant lights of the big city of Turin seem determined to filter through the clouds.

I love these rarefied atmosphere of the night at high altitude, where the forms are no longer defined only by matter but also by all those constantly changing intangible elements, such as: clouds, mists and the distant lights.
A good reminder of how pure beauty lies in the uniqueness of the moment, made so by the most unexpected ephemeral phenomena.

In my opinion a picture comes from an inner desire. At the source a photo is always the result of an act of love toward something that touches us deeply, in my case the mountains. This is a breeding ground which leads each time to a new idea, project, converging in the subsequent active commitment in realizing it, with will, deployment of resources, time, knowledge, money and, in case of my specific photographic field, a lot of physical/mental effort.

This undertaking is on the spot. Therefore, it is essential a great knowledge of the places I want to capture, what they potentially can offer and when. With all possible approximations, because having to deal with the unpredictable forces of nature is anything but easy.

The study of the exposure to the cardinal points is essential, as well as the study of the night sky on special maps for stars shooting. I also need mountaineering-survival equipment suited to the places where I want to venture.

Post-production must be never invasive, in full respect to the supreme art of nature and to the enormous efforts made on the spot. Rather a valuable support to compensate the intrinsic limitations of our cameras.


Roberto Bertero
Artist | Professional | Other
I am a professional musician, seriously interested in photography since 2007.

I love exploring the Alps.
The resulting pictures are just the top of an "iceberg" that symbolizes a personal path of continuous and deep research about the ancient mysteries of this world and the universe.
Sometimes I think that photography is just a personal excuse to return in certain places, look for new ones... and so continue the "endless journey".

I am conscious concerning the difficulties to render, respectfully, in a single image, all the magnificence I see, on place, with my own eyes....
That's why I am devoting a profound sense of discipline and responsibility in this activity, as a due tribute to the wonderful places I am visiting and also because I can't stand the idea of wasted beauty.
Sometimes I am successful in my efforts, other times less...
In any case I feel as interacting with impermanence, somehow "freezing in time" landscapes that will never appear the same again, in a constant immense flux of no fixed nature.
