Took this photo while I was hiking in the Schönau am Königssee. I found this small pond above the Königssee lake and I couldn’t resist the view and stop there to take a few shots. There also were other hikers, so hey, I hope they don’t mind this shot 😉

I don’t have the luxury of living in a place where the light pollution is so low that it could allow to capture the Milky Way. That being said, last weekend I finally found myself in a position to photograph it, during my stay in Swiss Alps. Here are the results.

Last weekend I went with some friends to see Salbitbrücke and take some pictures of it and the area. It is a high alpine pedestrian suspension bridge located on the way to the top of Salbitschijen in Göschenen, Switzerland. Soon I’ll publish some pictures, enjoy the video just for now 🙂

Dolomites are very famous for those amazing peaks painted with red at the sunset. That’s also the reason why I chose this place to shoot a sunset, hoping for strong direct light hitting the mountains during last few minutes of a spectacular sunset.

This photo was taken during the sunrise at Piazza San Marco. It was our second trip to Venice and soon we’ll write more about it. In the meanwhile, however, enjoy this amazing view 🙂 Sunrise it’s the only time you’ll see the square almost empty!
