June 2021: Siena Creative Photo Award 2021

The Siena Creative Photo Awards 2021 honored two of my photographs with the Nature & Landscape Commended Award.

The Dawn of the Nightglory

The nighttime Mont Blanc massif reflecting in alpine lake Lac de Chéserys from Aiguilles Rouge above Chamonix in the French Alps is one of the most iconic places in the Alps, especially when the Milky Way is rising just above Mont Blanc. It took five years to realize this photo and to finally align all conditions for the perfect setup. It was pure peace, joy and euphoria!

Painting With Light

At sunset, the Crater Lake volcano in the Cascade Range in Oregon is shrouded in the smoke of a wild fire ignited by lightning strike. The devastating eruption of the stratovolcano Mount Mazama 6900 years ago emptied the interior of the volcano. Under its own weight, the volcano collapsed into a ring structure called caldera. This rare light condition of the smoke at sunset painted the landscape in soft yellow colors that resemble a pastel painting.
