Self-timer shot taken during a night spent on the summit of Mount Brévent (2.525 m), over Chamonix.

Taken on March 14th 2012, looking West, in order to show the last light of the sun already gone, and, even more important, the beautiful shining presence of two planets: Jupiter and Venus, just on the center/left (Venus is the brighter of the two).

On the right of the two planets mentioned, in this photo you can see: Hamal (Alpha Arietis), Sheratan (Beta Arietis), the brightest stars in the constellation of Aries.
Center: Almaak, Mirach, Alpheratz, of Andromeda constellation.
More to the North (up on the far right) is visible the Cassiopeia constellation, with Ruchbah, y Cas, η Cas, Caph, Shedir...

RobertoBertero Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012  Professional Artist
well, it's a 44 seconds exposure... with some concentration it's possible to remain pratically still

wow, the sky, the sunset, snow, mountains...loving it! The single person certainly shows most people I suspect this looks lonely, to me it just shows solitude...not one and the same. I don't get lonely very easily, therefore I suspect I may be a harsh critic on what meets the criteria for the contest: "loneliness in the mountains." But lets not neglect to take notice that you have a superb photo here!

Wow! I really love this difference of meaning between loneliness and solitude... thank you for pointing out this, also because in the Italian language (I'm Italian) we just have to explain with a sentence if we love to be alone in a place or not...
Actually, I had to check the dictionary to understand the difference :-)
so we can say that loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone.
Great, I really like this!
About my personal experience in the mountains I can say with absolute certainty that loneliness generally does not exist (except in situations of extreme danger), in fact I've always profoundly loved my own moments of solitude out there :-)
I've only felt lonely in big cities, never on the mountains.
But this is simply my personal experience, no more no less, I can not speak for all people of course, eheh

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn something new. I really appreciate this.

Are you a photographer too? I've had a look through you deviantart page but I couldn't find photos.
Best greetings

Well I certainly am glad to have helped you, and am surprised to hear English is your second seem to type flawlessly. Photographer actually means you make money taking pictures...not that many people use that word correctly. I like to use slang in this case, I call myself a shutter-bug. Simply meaning taking pictures is a hobby. You didn't see the pictures because you didn't click "gallery." I am using the free deviant art membership, which means my pictures are viewed differently.
