Up there where the Moon dares

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Stefano De Rosa

After a careful planning, this morning (December 11, 2011) I went out to capture the post eclipse "Full Cold Moon" setting behind the Alps and the Sacra of San Michele, a religious complex (symbol of the Piedmont region) located some 40 km from Turin (Italy) on the 1,000 meters Mount Pirchiriano.

Location: Avigliana (Turin, Italy)
