Entry Description

Celebrations in July 2015 for the 150th Anniversary of the first Matterhorn ascent; I was at lake Stellisee in Switzerland and at night a beam of light from Italy illuminates the mountain side. The Matterhorn is one of the most famous and highest mountain of the European Alps.

About Photographer

I was born in Treviso (Northern Italy) in 1978. I love mountain and nature photography and I am a member of the Italian Alpine Club. I like to capture the emotions nature gives me by embracing its many aspects, such as rocks, plants and water in my work. The scenery presented in front of me, and the feelings it arouses in me, guide the development of my photos: black & white or colour are not just random choices. Composition and correct exposure are determinant in the making of my pictures. I can encapsulate my vision of photography in these words: "The colours of light... when nature paints itself." I very often hike through the Dolomites in Veneto and Trentino, but I also love travelling and visiting new lands at the first opportunity. My photo gallery: www.albertoperer.com
