Valle Stretta is a short and narrow valley of the Western Alps in Piedmont, right at the border with France, and it's doubtlessly one of the best alpine environment I know. Beautiful peaks, huge vertical rock walls, streams and an incredibly rich and varied vegetation that includes most of the species you can find elsewhere in the whole Alps range, such as larches, maples, aspens, scots an swiss stone pines among many others..I went to the valley one day of mid October looking for some good fall picture but couldn't imagine I would have found such a kaleidoscopic palette. As the ice on the cake, I was also blessed with some nice warm light at sunset to top everything else off. .This is stitched from five vertical takes, each double processed for better dynamic range.
