Lost Tent In The Snow Under The Winter Arch

The incredible result of a crazy night. Last february I hike in Dolomites to make some winter milkyway in this amazing location. My idea was to frame my little tent lost among the huge rocks with the complete arch above. The only problem was that, while shooting, the wind started to rise, and it became so strong that it flew the tent away despite the 25kg backpack acting as a ballast and the two ice-axes planted in the snow to hold it back! On the other hand I had an incredible clear sky that gave me the opportunity to frame all the nebula.

I am a designer from Milan, so creativity is already part of my work. I like to travel and discover new places, but always with the aim of taking pictures. I dedicate great care to location-scouting with long mountain hikes in search of the perfect spot. I always shot the real night-sky of the subject, planning pictures where the milkyway is co-protagonist of the scene. My aim is to translate what the eyes see and often the camera can't. Using stacking and combining different exposures, only to reproduce reality in all its art, without fictions and replacements.
