Into the clouds
Cloudy and rainy day in Jacques Cartier National Park Canon EOS 60D + EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM @100mm, iso400, f/4.5, 1/50
Sunrise thought the forest down the Villarrica, one of Chile's most active volcanoes, a few minutes after starting to climb. Snowboard fixed to my backpack, ready for a 5 hours climb till the crater and his smokes. After saying a few minutes at the summit (due to toxical smokes), time to climb down in snowboard, one of the coolest memories in my life. Follow me on FB: https://www.facebook.com/bgspix
The altiplano between Chile and western Bolivia
An impressive lake with great reflection along the rv. 63 on the way to the Geiranger Fjord (Norway).

During an overnight trip in a tiny bedouin camp in the Wadi Rum desert, an usually amazing photospot for crazies skyscapes. It was unfortunately a full-moon night. Alarm set at 4.00am, ouch, just after the moonset, barely 30 minutes before the first lights of the sunrise. I rubbed my eyes, put a jacket and took my tripod. Temperature is fine, sky is great, but to be honest not as much as I imagined, but this is anyway a great moment. A few minutes to find an appropriate foreground, and the milky way began to disappear slowly, a new day began over Jordan --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF17-40mm f/4L USM @17mm, 30s, f/4, ISO6400 (+a second shot 30 minutes later to get a better-exposed foreground)
End of day
Facebook page First day at Grand Teton National Park, on my way back from Solitude lake after hiking more than 10 hours, half of the time on a fully snowy trail. The sun was setting down on a tiny lake along the path. We stopped just a few minutes in this absolutely quiet place, as we still had a long way to come back to the campground. I wished I could stay longer to enjoy the sunset, but I was still 4 hours away from the camp. I had to finish the trail hiking by night in the bear territory, but it was worth every step. Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF17-40mm f/4L USM @17mm, f/10, 1/30, ISO200 DRI from 3 raws (-1/+1IL + a f/22 exposure to get the rays)
The North Face
Last evening before hiking the Stampede trail to the "Magic Bus", and for the very first time since we arrived in Alaska, a quite good weather. As I felt like I've missed too much things due to the climate, this was my last chance to discover Denali mountains and glacier with offering me a trip over Denali in an aircraft. An amazing 1 hour flight, a few meters from the ridges. --- Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @58mm, f/6.3, iso200, 1/640
