20-Night-Above-the-Clouds_TimeOdd_3[1]

Roberto Bertero is am a musician and mountain photographer based in Turin, Italy. He is presenting a selection of shots taken in High Mountain, all in very special moments: what he happened to find himself self above the clouds, or fog and haze (often a mix of these elements).

#1 Night Above The Clouds

An otherworldly view, captured during one of the nights spent above the clouds. In this case atop Mont Chaberton, a 3.131 metres (10,272 ft) peak in the French Alps in the group known as the Massif des Cerces in the département of Hautes-Alpes.

#2 A View From Above

20-Night-Above-the-Clouds_TimeOdd_3[1]

One of my many photos taken at night from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 meters / 11,603 feet), depicting part of the Susa Valley below and the distant lights of the city of Turin (Italy). The slightly cloudy night offered that extra touch of magic.

#3 Rivers Of Clouds At Moonlight

20-Night-Above-the-Clouds_TimeOdd_3[1]

A sea of clouds, exposed to the south-east, is lit by the moon (63%) rising in the east. Yes, a huge mass of clouds slipping down steep rocky ridges from a height of about 2.900 meters. Shot taken at night on September 6th 2012, from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m), Italy. This is one of the most otherworldly photograph I've taken so far. Thanks to the intrinsic magic of the night and to the privilege of being there, silently admiring this amazing moment. This 195 seconds exposure, at 115mm on full frame, turned the slow passage of the clouds in a sort of "silky waterfall". A few star trails are already visible, despite the exposure wasn't particularly long. I guess we all know as the consequences of Earth's rotation are more obvious when using a telephoto lens. Intensity of colors, contrast and white balance are strongly faithful to the scene.

Self-timer shot, taken on the summit of Mont Thabor (3.178 m), Vallée Étroite (France). An epic dawn in a severe environment, showing primordial traits.

#5 Gateway Of Awe

20-Night-Above-the-Clouds_TimeOdd_3[1]

Night view from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3.538 m) toward the Punta Lunella (2.772 m), a mountain in the Graian Alps (Italy) whose summit here emerges from an infinite bank of thick clouds. We can therefore approximate the altitude of the cloudscape around 2.600 meters, or so... which means about nine hundred meters below me. More in the distance are visible the lights of Turin (one of the largest cities in northern Italy) that lit up from beneath the mass of clouds. Then the universe, with planet Jupiter clearly visible on the left.
