Moonset over Mottarone

On Jan.24, 2008, another crystal-clear day had just started, when I spotted a waxing, almost-full Moon setting over the snow-covered slopes of the Mottarone, a well-known mountain (and ski resort) overhanging Stresa, renowned touristic resort on the western banks of Lago Maggiore.

In no time, I was out on my balcony shooting a sequence of exposures which I later put together into the animated GIF “movie” shown above.
