I’m working on a project for the winter season of trail running I need a few clicks on a winter landscape, so I chose Campo Imperatore (L’Aquila-Italy).
The spectacular landscape of the plain of Campo Imperatore, the snowly dunes under “Monte Scindarella” are perfect for this type of photography.
The working group consists of Elsa, my wife and my friend Aurelio, who is the creator of one of the greatest trail running racing circuit in Italy (parkstrail.it).
I also called Fabrizio (risk4sport crew) for some backstage shots.
Elsa, Fabrizio and I left L’Aquila at 10:00 , Aurelio came from Avezzano. We met in Fonte Cerreto (Assergi).
At 10:30 I was ready to photograph.
I made the first pictures to the amphitheater of “Shioppaturo” a few hundred meters from the road to the Hotel Campo Imperatore: I took many pictures against the North Face of the mountain because it was more snow and gave a greater sense of cold and winter.
After about 1 hour we went to photograph the east area of”Campo Imperatore’s plain”, where are three typical small trees, the only trees in the big plain.

After lunch I saw the colors and the beautiful afternoon light so I decided to take more pictures with Aurelio who was running with a full stomach!
