Maiden Shower

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 9.55.03 AMI made this photograph in 2009. When I first posted a selection from my portfolio to 500px I didn’t know things like why it might not be the best idea to upload 30+ images in one day, and stuff like that. I would like to share it at this time, because I have been working in the California deserts for a month now in the midst of the driest winter in recorded history and the lushness of this scene is especially appealing to me. While I am still awaiting a year filled with many other adventures to new places, this will have to do. I think many of us are awaiting spring right now! MORE…

Blue Fraciscio

Screen Shot 2014-01-25 at 5.39.15 AMFraciscio (1345 m.s.l.) is a wonderful typical alpine village in the municipality of Campodolcino (Rezie Alps – Vallespluga) in the province of Sondrio, Lombardy region. She gave birth to St. Louis Guanella (19 December 1842) priest who led the Christian charity in the world. Perhaps it is for this reason that this wonderful resort at times shines a fantastic fabulous light, the other night was even more beautiful, it was beautifully blue! Thanks to those who made it possible that I could see it and photograph it! More…
