It's a beautiful shot. Not sure how I missed it when you first posted it, Vieri.

An oustanding shot, Vieri!
... and another reminder that besides all the talk about great equipment the arguably most important factor for a great shot is to get out no matter how early or late and be there when the light is perfect. I am sure you've had many occasions where the weather did not turn out as needed. But to have the dedication to get the shot you want is what probably separates the master from us occasional shooters ...

Thank you very much indeed Norbert!

Well, you are right, that wasn't my first time up there (and won't probably be the last!). On that particular day, staying lower in the valley you were completely shrouded in clouds, with very little visibility. I looked at the shape and type of clouds and at their movement, and I thought it would be a good call to go (again!) up the Lagazuoi, and see if I could make something out of the clouds parting and forming again - and I could.

On a different note, and as I posted on another forum: I often find that people enjoy photos online thinking that it's just luck, and not putting the work in, that makes the difference between a good photo and a bad one, or between professional photographers producing consistently high quality results and the rest (I am speaking in general of course, not about me). People think that we are incredibly lucky: we just go somewhere, take a great shot and go home, while amateurs and holiday makers just are doomed by bad luck and never find the great sky, their photos don't post-process as well as professionals', they need a better camera, better lenses, and so on. The truth behind a great photo is not just in the photo you see, that's just like the tip of the iceberg. Like the submerged part of an iceberg, the truth behind a great photo is in the dozens of trip that end with perhaps an OK photo but without a truly great image, without "portfolio keepers" so to speak. These trips and those photos are the things people don't know about, but the things that are fundamental in creating good work. There often is a huge investment of time, research, money and energy behind one single successful photo. There always is a huge investment of time, study and work behind the post-processing of a great photo. Behind a great print. Behind marketing it. And so on. Luck, of course, has a part in it as it has with any human endeavour: relying just of luck to do photography, however, like with an other human endeavour, will never end well I am afraid

As with all your imagery, the level of detail, textures and quality of light is outstanding.
