DescriptionThe picture shows the moonset behind the Rocciamelone mountain, 3538 m. high, which is on the italian/french border, not far from Torino, my hometown. In fact the picture is part of a sequence taken from my home balcony.
The Rocciamelone is the first mountain with recorded ascent, which happened in 1358 A.D.
