Luciano Gaudenzio - Ghost!
Snow storm and fog, only white, then, suddenly, in the sea of snow, I distinguish a different white edge: she is, the lady of snows, the white ptarmigan.
A slow approach being together as much as possible; for an hour I see her eating grass and slake it’s thirst by consuming snow, then, suddenly, with a flutter of wings, she decides to disappear into white.
Perhaps I could photograph it while flying …. SLR’s buffer is full, I’m wait for almost a minute, then, I check if there is only white in the files….
…I see it and I’m happy.
