Skull Island by RobertoBertero Skull Island by RobertoBertero
Click here to buy a print of this photo

Cinque Torri (five towers) are a small group belonging to Nuvolau group, in the Dolomiti Ampezzane north-west of San Vito di Cadore and south-west of Cortina d'Ampezzo (Italy).
Maximum height 2.361 m.
What you see in the background it's not the sky, but the wall of the Lastoni di Formin.

Nevertheless, this view from the summit of mount Lagazuoi (2.778 m), who sees the towers immersed in the early morning mist, reminded me the '33 movie "King Kong" and the utterly mysterious Skull Island. Hence comes my idea for the title :-)

this has to be one of the most mysteriously exquisite works i have seen on DA. you have truly developed a mastery of seeing what can't be seen and bringing it to the masses.

Thanks for the thoughtful comment!
I am a great lover of various styles, among them the dark and, in a certain sense, vintage style... reminescent of the atmospheric old movies, which I deeply know and love...
so when I am on the spot, in remote locations, I always observe carefully what the immense landscape has to offer, and rather than shooting everything, I tendentially prefer to capture details somehow lost in the midst of such immensities... a way like another to go back home with a precise documentation that meets at 100% my vision and what really struck me.
Best regards
