Last summer I was visiting my best friend Marco in Oulx, a beautiful village on the Italian alps, surrounded by stunning mountains: an inspiration for photography off the beaten paths.
Mount Seguret is the only example of dolomitic rocks in the entire valley, it thus offers a lot of interests for geologists and mountaineers alike.
Taking advantage of the changing weather typical of the summer on the Italian alps, I set up my camera from down the valley and waited for just the right lighting conditions.
Mount Seguret is the star and main character of this image: to properly convey its majesty and beauty, I framed it very tight using a 300mm lens.
The choice of Black and White followed very easily with the goal of enhancing the beautiful textures of the rocks and the unique cloud that was formed on top of the mount by the warm summer winds hitting the cold rocks.
