Magic in the Moonlight

Blog      Personal Website      Facebook

This is the fantastic face of the Mont Blanc massif as seen from the Malatrà plateau at moonlight.
The sector goes from the glorious Pointe Walker (4,208 m) of the Grandes Jorasses to the Mont Gruetta (3,684 m).

A sublime view, obviously thanks to the pyramidal shape of the Pointe Walker that was, in fact, what truly inspired me to visit this place.

It's like having an immense pyramid of Giza in Val d'Aosta :-)

As I often say, photography (besides equipment, technique) is mostly "an act of love towards something" so I've photographed this beauty under any possible conditions of light. More photos will follow.

Night shot taken, looking east, from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 meters / 11,603 feet), Susa Valley, Italy.
In the distance an opening in the carpet of clouds, just above the city of Turin, let filter all the light pollution of the big town. Also thanks to a proper long exposure, this source of light appears as a sort of portal leading to distant universes. Presence also of faint moonlight (phase 27%) almost set in the west.

Despite the considerable number of places I've visited so far in the Alps, the summit of Mount Rocciamelone has always been, is, and surely will be, one of my favorite places ever... not just because it is the symbol mountain of the valley where I live (the Valley of Susa), rather because due to its height and position it is definitely a place where you can almost reach out and touch the otherworldly, especially during the night.
And that's what drives me each time to return to the mountains: to be face to face with the otherworldly. Definitely I do not care of doing anything else while I am there.


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.

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.
