Flying Over the Alps (From Milan to Paris AZ 350)

Omegna (Italy). Being a commuter between Milan and Paris has its advantages. Days ago I left Milan with a very thick fog onboard of the usual Alitalia flight AZ 350, but once I was flying above the Alps (more or less I appraised I was flying over Omegna) I noticed this landscape out of the window. The fog is still there covering the Po Valley, whereas the Pre-Alps and the Alps are sun-kissed.

I love photographing from an airplane. It’s a bit annoying when the internal glass is dirty, but fortunately almost every carrier gives some wet wipes, which can be perfect to clean the internal part of the window.

To take this photo I used the fantastic Leica Summarit-M 1:2.5/90.


Omegna (Verbano-Cusio-Ossola). Essere pendolare tra Milano e Parigi ha i suoi vantaggi. Giorni fa ho lasciato Milano sotto una nebbia molto fitta con il mio consueto volo Alitalia AZ 350, ma una volta sopra le Alpi (più o meno ho calcolato che stessi volando sopra Omegna) ho notato questo panorama fuori dal finestrino. C’era ancora la nebbia che copriva la Pianura Padana, mentre le Pre-Alpi e le Alpi erano baciate dal sole.

Mi piace molto fotografare dall’aereo. E’ un po’ fastidioso quando il vetro interno è sporco, ma per fortuna quasi tutte le compagnie aeree offrono delle salviette umidificate che sono perfette per pulire la parte interna del finestrino.

Per scattare questa foto ho usato il fantastico obbiettivo Leica Summarit-M 1:2.5/90.

Sea of Clouds (from Milan Linate to Paris Orly)

From Milan (Italy) to Paris (France). On my frequent flights commuting between Milan and Paris, the moment during which I’m crossing the Alps is one of the most waited for (together with the take off). It’s funny, but despite an average of three back&forth flights per month (therefore 6 Alps’ crosses) I feel it’s every time a new experience.

And last Monday the Alps’ peaks were emerging from a very thick and dense layer of clouds, from which the title “Sea of Clouds” – pretty obvious.


Da Milano a Parigi. A bordo dei miei frequenti voli da pendolare tra Milano e Parigi, il momento durante il quale sto attraversando le Alpi è uno dei più attesi (assieme a quello del decollo). E’ divertente, ma nonostante una media di tre voli andata / ritorno al mese (e quindi sei sorvoli delle Alpi) ho la sensazione che ogni volta sia una nuova esperienza.

E lunedì scorso, le cime delle Alpi uscivano da una coltre di nuvole molto densa e spessa, da cui il titolo “Mare di Nuvole” – abbastanza ovvio.

The Tagliamento River

San Daniele del Friuli (Italy). Some days ago I was driving by San Daniele del Friuli, and I decided to climb up to a hill. Do you know when you are in the mood of “looking around” without a specific destination? That was my case… But when I saw the street was turning and was giving me an idea about the landscape, I could not resist and I immediately pushed on the car’s brakes. And I think I was right! The photo here above is a shot I took from there: the Tagliamento, one of the most important river of the north-east of Italy, here is in the trait between Osoppo and San Daniele del Friuli. It looks iced, I know; and I found this effect pretty amazing! But it’s white simply because its very wide riverbed is made of candid stones and pebbles. All around, a lovely pinkish sunset just behind the Carnic Alps.
