Lake Campotosto, Abruzzi, Italy

Photo and caption by Vincenzo Mazza

This is the lake of Campotosto in Abruzzi, Italy. The mountains in the background are part of the Gran Sasso d'Italia mountain range, the higest mountains in the center of Italy. This image would show the beautiful wilderness that surround the city of l'Aquila, shocked by a dramatic heart quake less than two years ago. The image was captured in a really cold 2010 February sunset with a Canon Eos 5D mKII, EF 16-35L lens, B W polarizer filter and two Lee NDG filters.
