Milky Way above Mont Blanc by RobertoBertero Milky Way above Mont Blanc by RobertoBertero
Click here to buy a print of this photo

Here you can see a sector of the Milky Way passing above the French side of the Mont Blanc massif.
Night shot, taken on September 13th 2012, from the shores of the beautiful alpine Lake Cheserys (2.211 m), high up in the Aiguilles Rouges above the Chamonix valley (France).

To whom it may concern, I'll be posting soon another image with a perfect mirror reflection of the Mont Blanc massif in the still water of the lake.
Anyhow, I hope you'll take a few moments to see the light conditions of this shot. Please note the amount of light that a good camera can record during an ordinary long exposure, around thirty seconds at high ISO...
It manages to capture not only the light of the distant Chamonix, but, somehow, it seems the universe itself is producing light... filling with a bright veil of hope the dark rippled waters of the lake.
I've found as very evocative this subtle dialogue between light and darkness. Obviously light just barely perceptible to the naked eye!

This picture has recently been published, along with other photos of mine, in the British newspaper Daily Mail.

no, you can not.
I follow personally the sale of high-resolution files, and I sell my files only for publishing purposes, like magazines and/or advertising.

Thanks for your understanding,
