Dawn climbing m. Blanc du Tacul. You can see the Aig. du Midi on the left, in the middle the Aig. du Plan and in the background on the right the Aig. Verte.
At the center of the picture, the Col du Midi. Here starts the mere de glace gletcher.

Wow a stunning capture Enrico. Superb work. Great composition with the sun captured perfectly on the lower mountain and in the bg. I probably would have preferred this image without the human elemant but thats just my opinion.
(A good friend of mine is climbing MB next year and would appreciate any help on what equipment to take, photography wise).
Thanks for posting and welcome to TN.

Hi Enrico,
Welcome to Treknature. I really hope you are going to enjoy this site as much as most of do.
You started of with a stunning foto from an amazing achievement. It is great to see the mountains from a different POV then we normally see. Great work on the exposure, with beautiful light and colors and great details.
Thanks for sharing, and looking forward to your next photos, your critique and workshops.

Truly amazing picture. the sun on the snow on that mountain flank is absolutely beautiful. great focus. Great work! TFS

Hello Enrico,
I like the mountains, and this picture shows beautiful mountains covered with glaciers.
The way the hikers go, looks impressive.
Do you know in which altitude you were in the moment you made the picture?
Regards, FABIAN

Hi Enrico

Bonjour Enrico,
Bien venue à Treknature.
Magnifique capture au dessus de la vallée blanche, avec ces couleurs matinales.
Merci et à bientôt,

Buongiorno Enrico,
Bien venuta a Treknature. Cattura splendida sopra la valle bianca, con questi colori matinales.
Grazie ed a presto,

Hello Enrico,
marvellous Alpine scenery with grat depth, well composed, taking in ice cold dawn, communicating a very intense feeling.
I can here the sounds of shoes stepping on a hard snow, and feel the excitement of getting close to the top.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Enrico,
WHat a fantastic shot, very dramatic and I like the hikers in the corner. Brilliant POV and lighting.
TFS, Ulla

What amazing light you captured in this shot Enrico. Looks like you travel to fantastic places. I'm glad you can share them with us. This has perfect exposure and the composition is very strong. The figures in shadow give so much scale and drama to the photo.

There is nothing in the world that can match this feeling we share! :) Love mountaineering, the art of being miserable as once someone said!

Hi, Enrico.
Wonderful view. Good exposure in difficult conditions. Real mountain climbing feeling.

hi enrico
a beautiful shot
great lighting
it gives a mystrious appearance to the picture
it seems as if the trekkers are travelling towarda heaven!!
if there wd have been some light on the travellers the pic w have enhanced. in this case somehow the trekkers are disturbing in the frame
a beautiful capture
