Close Encounters

SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // Standing still for a long time, hided in the deep of the forest lurking for the white tailed eagles, which in the meantime were circling just above the branches of the trees over me, I decided to go out “in the open” and sit on a closer observation tower for a while.

Lavish and Gallant…

SKÅNNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // but you can show it off!

I have already told about the spirits of the forest,those white fallow deer that populate the forests of Scania making them even more fairytale and mysterious.

My First Peregrine Falcon

SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // After about ten days of clouds, grey and rain, seeing a “luminous sphere” in a blue sky left me somewhat amazed and puzzled. And so, overcoming the fear of the unusual atmospheric phenomenon, I went out for a photo tour.

As usual so many animals, now more than ever excited in a Nature that finally wakes up, still stealthily after the long winter, almost ready to explode soon: the mere fact of hearing the chirping of birds that breaks the winter silence, made me hope, and believe, that it will not rain forever.
Morale rised, like the rebirth of a smile.

The Spirits of the Forest

SKÅNE COUNTY, SVEZIA // The first time I spotted one I thought it was an albino. I was completely surprised, fascinated and bewitched. I was taking a walk into the deep of a wild and intriguing forest, even if just few miles outside Malmö: the silence, interrupted only by the chirping of the birds which, after the long Scandinavian winter, came back to settle again in this part of the country; the air around smelled good, of resin and moss; my being alone, in the benevolent embrace of birches, larches and firs, rose to an important moment. I stopped to fully enjoy that peaceful moment.

The Moose: Mystery and Legend

INTO THE WILD, SWEDEN// Usually, and mostly for those whom loves Nature, talking about Scandinavia one can only think about uncontaminated environments, endless open landscapes, fjords and wild forests.
And talking about the animals living there, one think straight away to reindeer, bear, moose and so on.
And the moose, knows as the king of the forest, is maybe the more mysterious and legendary of all, for its size and prominence, and still its elusive way to avoid human closeness.

The Red Kite

SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // The Skåne region, the southernmost of Sweden, is a real paradise for bird-watchers, both because here you can find 192 of the 250 bird species that breed in the country, and because it’s a very important point – probably the most important in Europe – of the European migration route and 359 different bird species have been spotted here during their passage.

A Stunning Encounter

APENNINES, ITALIA // During the second stage of my retracing Wandering Italia, something incredible happened: a special encounter, an everlasting moment, a lifetime experience…

I’m slowly driving down towards Castelluccio flat land, stopping time to time to take pictures of the snowy landscape. While I’m searching the best spot to shoot the village perched on the hill in front of me, I see something running in the valley; because of all the cars and tourists around, I think it’s probably just a dog. What else could it be?

Patagonia

Ciao…

He sent his SOS to the world but no one got it. He tried, but no one really understood it.

“Peter and the Wolf “ and a  situation in some ways paradoxical.

On the other hand he didn’t know himself what kind of help he was looking for. He understood it when it was already too late and it was not coming back.

At least in that moment.

The Will to Go

I often think about the endless landscapes of Argentinean Patagonia.

I do not need to look at the thousands of photos that I took then,  I carry these landscapes inside me and often they pop-up in front of my eyes, as a slow slide show, on the music of my melancholy.

And I think…

I think about the vastness, the  immensity, and a boundless nature so difficult to imagine and believe real.
