The Enchanted Castle by RobertoBertero
The Enchanted Castle

Personal Website      Facebook

Shot taken in front of the southern side of the world famous Vajolet Towers, South Tyrol Dolomites, one of my favorite places in the Alps, if not the absolute favorite. 

The moment of the day is the transition between the blue hour and the night, basically when the stars are appearing in the sky, or, at least, when the camera begins to see the stars (under this aspect our cameras while working at high ISO are much more sensitive than the human eye).
In the upper right corner is visible the Andromeda Galaxy.

The towers benefit here of a light evidently still present in the atmosphere from the west, due to the sun below the horizon, a light that my eyes could no longer see.
I opted for a black and white just to make the most from this almost "otherworldly" atmosphere.

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.
