Bruno D'Amicis - Millions of violets

Bruno D'Amicis - Millions of violets

Mid of spring is the time when first flowers dot the mountain pastures and plateaus in the Apennines. Last year a gigantic, continous blanket of millions of yellow and purple violets covered the majestic plateau of Campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso National Park. The rare and unique event claimed for some effort from my side to document it. Laying on my belly for hours, I've tried every possible angle and every possible lens to photograph this amazing spectacle. Here I shot I like, taken with a fisheye lens to stress the contrast between the warm-colored flowers and dark, threatening clouds above the mountain peaks.
