Etna had an another one of its paroxysms. In this event me and my cousin reached the Valle del Bove, a great point to see the eruption of the Southeast Crater.
Initially, we had to seek shelter among the rocks because the wind was too strong, but it doesn’t worked; In fact, after we pitched the tent to get a greater repair but most especially to change the optics in peace.
For this photography I made an exposure for the sky and another for the ground, then I merged them toghether using Photoshop, finally I made some adjusting of contrast, light and shadow.

The volcano Etna continues its eruption characterized by continuous paroxysms with new lava fountains and new lava flows.
I went to the Valle del Bove with my cousin to see this spectacular show.
The sky was very clear, the moon was not visible (it was visible a little bit later around midnight) and the stars could be seen very clearly. There was a single problem: the wind.
We were at a high altitude, about 2500 meters, so the wind was very evident. We were therefore forced to seek shelter behind some rocks.
I executed the Startrail with 100 shots interspersed with 30 seconds exposure and then I merged them together.

New on 500px : Isola Bella in the morning by marcocalandra89 by marcocalandra89

Facebook page: MC Photography – Marco Website: http://ift.tt/JX9CaF My friends and I decided to go to photograph the sunrise on the famous tourist destination Isola Bella located in Sicily (Italy). The day before I did researches to check the weather conditions. The results reported cloudy or partly cloudy so the conditions could be perfect for the photograph I had in my mind. The next morning, however, in the sky there weren’t any clouds but we went there equally to spend some time together. Maybe the weather was not as I expected, but the result is not bad: I made a this long exposure with my Haida Pro ND 1000 to have a flat sea then the image was postprocessed in Photoshop.
