Sunrise of fire and mist

Sunrise of fire and mist

Northern Lazio, near Lake Bolsena. This is the valley where rises Civita di Bagnoregio, also known as “The dying town”. Dense fog banks submerge the valley floor, while the first rays of light filter through the clouds. This burst of light only lasted for a few seconds; I’ve been lucky enough to have the camera ready on the tripod, waiting for a shy sunrise that, for this reason, I named “of fire and mist”.

Misty sunrise in Civita di Bagnoregio the Dying Town

Misty sunrise in Civita di Bagnoregio.

A misty sunrise on the valley overlooked by the ancient town of Civita di Bagnoregio, the “Dying Town”. The meaning of the moniker “Dying Town” is due to the peculiar geomorphology of this area: the entire valley is essentially a badlands, included the hill on which Civita rises. Year after year, small portions of the hills are eroded by the rains and the winds and this will lead eventually to the collapse of the town. This panorama is made of 14 vertical frames, for a total size of about 124 MPixels.

The realm of the ancients

The realm of the ancients

The realm of the ancients. The undergrowth of the ancient forest of Mount Amiata is covered with a mantle of brown leaves and the stones are populated by lush moss.
The thin trunks of the Beech trees stretch out to the sky, capturing as much light as they can, making the undergrowth a realm of dim light.

Road to the misty forest

Road to the misty forest

The road that leads up to Mount Amiata passes through the ancient and misty forest made of Beech and Chestnut trees. To take this shot I had my back covered by my sweet Sara, who was checking on the road. Luckily there were no other cars passing in that moment of the day and I had the opportunity to capture this view taking all the time I desired.
