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.

On my last excursion on Mount Etna I was looking for something different from the usual images of the volcano erupting: I wanted to show the vegetation, the nature that exists on this volcano.
I spent so all night taking night photography with the volcanic landscape. The photograph that has given me more satisfaction that day was this taken at the Violets during the sunrise when they were illuminated by the first rays of the sun.
The image was made with a double exposure, one for the sky and the other for the ground and were later merged in Photoshop.

Finally the new moon come. The weather forecast promised clear sky from clouds, so I had to find a place to realize a shot of the Milky Way, because in these cases it’s more visible. So, in the afternoon I went to the volcano Etna volcano and I started the long path that leads to the “Rifugio Galvarina”. Six and a half kilometers alternating between forests and solidified lava where you could admire the beauty of the nature.
When I arrived, even though there was no light pollution, I was not able to see the Milky Way as I would expected, so I searched a good position to realize a startrail. I photographed before the ground, then the sky and through Photoshop I fused them together adjusting finally some other parameters.
