Night Embrace by RobertoBertero Night Embrace by RobertoBertero
Click here to buy a print of this photo

Shot taken at night (on July 18th, 2012) in the majestic natural amphitheater of the Gracier Blanc, in the core of the ╔crins National Park (France), with the mountain range culminating in the famous Barre des ╔crins (4.102 m).
I love that mountain !!

On the right you can see my trusted tent illuminated from inside, while on the left (toward south), is visible part of the Milky Way.

This crest mixed rock and ice (approx. 3.200 m), located about 200 meters above the glacier level, worked out as a lovely vantage point in order to get an overall view of the immense environment and, also, to properly convey the sense of scale and height of the surrounding mountains. A very important aspect which totally vanishes at the level of the glacier, for obvious reasons of perspective.

As usual in my night photography, stars are just an integral part of a general concept and composition.
So, like any other genres, photography not at service of the stars, but at service of an idea... of a proper scenic representation.
At least, all this in the best intentions :-) ... then we have to consider all the technical and logistical problems, which are definitely a very substantial aspect in this complex photographic genre.

Roberto, your photo was used by a dutch newspaper without any image credits so I didn┤t know who made it. I reproduced it on G+ and now thanks to observant readers your name came up. I have added your image credits now. Do you mind that the photo is on G+ for others to see?

If you object I will immediately remove it, but having the photo without image credits in the well-read newspaper will make it plausible that your photo goes into circulation without any image credits.

Dear Max, thank you so much for letting me know.
About the newspaper I've informed right now my agent in the UK, they know how to act in these cases.

About G+, well, you can keep it.
Gently, under my photo write clearly the link to my official website:

where those interested can purchase fine art prints of my entire production.

Best wishes,
Roberto Bertero

Any chance of a wallpaper-sized version? Stretching it out just doesn't seem right. 1920x1200 would be awesome.

Thanks for your interest, but I sell my hi-res files only for publishing purposes, like magazines and/or advertising.
My whole production is available as print on my personal website.

This is absolutely beautiful. There is not too many places that are accessible to humans where you can see the night sky like this anymore. What a beautiful capture of what people are missing out on in the night skies. Gorgeous.

Incredible shot. What lens did you take this with? I have a 17-40 F/4 and have been wondering whether it's up to the task of shooting the Milky Way.

Wow! so.. you need like an special filter for the camera to capture that scene on the sky (the milky way) or you just need a long exposure? :O
Reply
:iconrobertobertero:
RobertoBertero Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artist
no filters were used here, just a normal long exposure at high iso
bye!

Wonderful! Absolutely gorgeous composition, between the trailing line of light in the sky and the warm orange glow of the tent in the foreground. Just stunning. :)
