Awakening Mountains by RobertoBertero Awakening Mountains by RobertoBertero

From left to right:
P.te de Ronce 3.611 m, Grand Roc Noir 3.563 m, Grand Casse 3.852 m, P.ta Marmottere 3.384 m, Grande Motte 3.656 m.

Sunrise as seen from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3,538 m - 11,608 ft), Susa valley, Italy.
The first warm rays of light are shyly painting the snowy peaks of the frontal mountain range, the Valnoise National Park.
Peace, silence and a gentle breeze all around.

I think this is one of the most significant moments that, until now, I've been able to capture on the mountains.
It does not have the "wow factor"... which in my opinion leaves you with the same rapidity which it appears... it's showing instead the simple amazing grace of events that are actually happening on daily basis... just too far from the eyes of most people... bound as we are in our city life, usually detached from these simple pleasures of nature.

A friend of mine once asked me a question: "What matters most: what surprises you or what touches your heart?"

Lovely picture. Goes without saying. But what a marvelous place to "observe" and I like your observations as well as your photo. Being in the mountains always recharges my energy and reconnects me spiritually. It's hard to be in mountains of this kind of grandeur and not feel a "presence" and/or intelligent design. But that's just my take on it. Bottom line, it's beautiful and I'm jealous of your experience.
