Silent Immensity by RobertoBertero Silent Immensity by RobertoBertero
Click here to buy a print of this photo

Shot taken on March 14th 2012 from the summit of Mont Brévent (2.525 m), France. During one evening-night-morning spent up there freezing my tail off, and, also, contemplating the immense beauty of the Mont Blanc massif north face! :-)

A bit on the right of the summit you can see the brilliant star Sirius.

I've decided to capture the huge area of the Mont Blanc summit (4.810 m) during the late evening transition time right after the blue hour, when the camera through long exposure is still able to perceive some sort of "atmospheric light", when the light pollution from Chamonix is still non too invading, and before moonrise that would have spoiled the sight of the first stars in the sky.
So: insanely great subject, right place and absolutely precise time window.

Unfortunately at this resolution it's not possible to see the Refuge Vallot, located at 4.362 meters above sea level. It's placed on the iced crest on the right... in the original hi-res file is perfectly visible the entire metal structure!
