Came From Outer Space by RobertoBertero Came From Outer Space by RobertoBertero
We all belong to the stars.
The matter that constitues our bodies comes from the planet but originally it came from exploding stars eons ago. Whenever it happens, as stardust we will return to dust.

Self-timer shot taken during a night spent in solitary at 3,000 meters (as usually I do), on the high ridges separating the Valsavarenche to the Val di Rhmes (Aosta Valley).
Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso.

This is very beautiful. I want to start taking star trail shots but my first try wasn't very successful. My equipment wasn't good either. So, can you share the exif please? That might help me understand what I need to improve or how should I set my equipment.

Thank you for sharing this incredible photo. Perfect reminder of why sometimes you should step away from everything and just appreciate where we are.

I've only ever done something like this once, but had to use city lights for a background.
The hairs on the back of my neck are standing up... This is superb.

Of those in the contest: "the loneliness in the mountain" this is possibly my favorite, however the theme seems to be neglected. On the other hand, that is a great picture of the night sky!

Yes, certainly, I understand, there aren't clearly visible mountains from this angle, I have given top priority to the sky.

I've uploaded right now a new photo, I am pretty sure that would suit well for the competition, but I have noticed that the entries are closed?

best greetings, and thanks for your appreciation :-)
