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:

MatericLook: Sibenik 00 by Francesco Perratone, Croatia Photography and art
Hello!
 
A bit late, but here’s March wallpaper!

……Croatia, Sibenik

A very nice historical city, with narrow alleys and steep stone stairs, lovely for taking a walk in a warm summer evening!
The city itself has a turbulent but interesting past, it has been controlled by Byzantium, Hungary, Venice, then the Habsburgs and Austria, more recently Dalmatia, Italy, then became part of Yugoslavia and finally Croatia.
The ancient settlement became a city at least from 1066 AD, when a document from the most important Croatian ruler, Kresimir (Petar Kresimir IV) refers to it.
A note on the shot itself: the horizon line is difficult to spot, (you can guess it from the mountains far back on the right).
The coastlines from the city and the opposite shore are converging, so the overall impression is somewhat “unstable”.
However the mind clings to a vertical line, shaped by the reflection of the city in the sea water, the fortress up the hill and the cloud above….
I personally like it, but probably not everyone will!

MatericLook: VeniceLandscape1 by Francesco Perratone

The bad weather is coming and the light is becoming more and more surreal. Strong shadows and a warm tone try to hide the chilly water that will fall in a few minutes…

MatericLook: VeniceLandscape0 by Francesco Perratone, Venice Photography, Art

Bad weather is approaching fast, the landscape is becoming darker and darker. A strip of buildings on the other side seems to be the only source of light, also the water is dark and starting to become agitated.
