Lost tent in the snow under the winter arch
DESCRIPTIONThe incredible result of a crazy night. Last february I hike in Dolomites to make some winter milkyway in this amazing location. Going up was a bit hard: at the beginning the snow was not much but as soon as I reached altitude the snow became very deep and proceding was difficult. Also the path was not beaten so I had to find the way by myself. Once on top, I found out that at midnight a winter arch was possible. So I prepared the pano. 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! Due to the wind the carbon poles that hold it together broke, and in order to be able to use it at night I had to tape them back together. On the other hand I had an incredible clear sky that gave me the opportunity to frame all the nebula.
AUTHORI 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 Mission 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.
