Spirits of the mountain: Silken ripples

Her silk scarf,
in the morning breeze

The first rays of the sun reflect in the vapors rising from the valley after a heavy rain shower.
The morning breeze touches it, like the ripples of a silk scarf draped over the mountain tops…

‘Silken ripples’ is a photo in the series ‘The spirits of the mountain’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.

‘The spirits of the mountain’ is a series of five photos, made in Italy in the vicinity of Lake Como, July 2017.
On the occasion of the vernissage of an exhibition in Italy, I stayed there for a week and made two series of photos in the mountains and valleys in the vicinity of Bellano.
Both series are made on two evenings just before sunset and after heavy rains.
