DescriptionSunrise as seen from the summit of Mount Rocciamelone (3,538 m - 11,608 ft), Susa valley, Italy. The first warm rays of light are shyly painting the snowy peaks of the frontal mountain range, the Valnoise National Park.Peace, silence and a gentle breeze all around.I think this is one of the most significant moments that, until now, I've been able to capture on the mountains.It does not have the 'wow factor'... which in my opinion leaves you with the same rapidity which it appears... it's showing instead the simple amazing grace of events that are actually happening on daily basis... just too far from the eyes of most people... bound as we are in our city life, usually detached from these simple pleasures of nature.A friend of mine once asked me a question: 'What matters most: what surprises you or what touches your heart?'
Roberto Bertero, Rivoli (Torino) Member Since September 2010 Artist Statement I am a professional musician, seriously interested in photography since 2007.
I love exploring the Alps. The resulting pictures are just the top of an "iceberg" that symbolizes a personal path of continuous and deep research about the ancient mysteries of this world and the universe. Sometimes I think that photography is just a personal excuse to return in certain places, look for new ones... and so continue the "endless journey".
I am conscious concerning the difficulties to render, respectfully, in a single image, all the magnificence I see, on place, with my own eyes.... That's why I am devoting a profound sense of discipline and responsibility in this activity, as a due tribute to the wonderful places I am visiting and also because I can't stand the idea of wasted beauty. Sometimes I am successful in my efforts, other times less... In any case I feel as interacting with impermanence, somehow "freezing in time" landscapes that will never appear the same again, in a constant immense flux of no fixed nature.
