An image from the Italian Alps. Shots used for the work were taken during a short hike to a mountain cabin near home, in north-eastern Italy: rifugio Madonna della Neve (“Our Lady of the Snow”). There’s a small chapel nearby dedicated to her.

You can have a look at the beautiful view from near the rifugio here …this time I wasn’t the one that took the 360 image 😉

At the sunset…

…we’re near the end of the hike, a few minutes from the cabin. The sun is casting some interesting rays from behind the mountains:
