Above the Darkness of the Night by RobertoBertero Above the Darkness of the Night by RobertoBertero

"If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing"
(Letter to Corinthians)

Also in photographic terms, I can avail myself of the best cameras and lenses on the market, I can read what famous authors say about how to tell a visual story but without the love for adventure, I am nothing.

Shot taken on June 27th 2012 at 10:42 p.m. from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m), Italy, as the moon (phase 57%) continued its slow journey to the west.
After moonset I took a bunch of interesting photos to the starry sky (then published in various magazines).
I've always postponed the consideration of this photo because I thought the scenery was a bit "chaotic"... anyway, all in all I think it expresses quite well what it means to be above a sea of ​​clouds at night.

On the right we have the moon, while on the left is perfectly visible the Scorpius constellation.
Under the "primordial ocean" of clouds are filtering the lights of the Susa valley 3.000 meters below.
