Bruno D'Amicis - Spirit guide


No need for me to repeat the big role Apennine chamois plaid in my career as nature photographer. Of many things I love about them one is surely the fact that to photograph chamois one has to hike to their mountain habitat. Therefore, these animals, as a spirit guide, led me to the most secluded, remote, pristine and spectacular corners of my beloved Apennines mountains. To witness the world as a chamois might do is one of the great privileges of mountain photography.

    Neat image ! Wonderful animal, nice landscape and wonderful light. It all comes together for sure. I really like to photograph chamois myself and therefore I have already visited the Vosges several times.

    Take care
