The spirits of the valley: Flooded Valley

Rain clouds flood the valley,
the mountains breathe quietly
as the night covers their sides.

Let’s return to the peace and quiet of an evening in the mountains. In a small house on a deserted mountain slope, I see how the dark takes possession of the valley, while the mountain slopes breathe out the rain that has just fallen…

‘Flooded Valley’ is the first photo in the series ‘The spirits of the valley’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.

‘The spirits of the valley’ is a series of 6 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.
