Morning mist on the valley floor #1; Tirino Valley, Capestrano, Abruzzo, Italy
Description: Capestrano is a small hill town in the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park in Abruzzo. Towering over the valley floor below it offers a great viewpoint up and down the Tirino Valley and across to the mountains opposite. One morning we awoke in the house we were renting to find the valley a sea of cloud beneath us. The next couple of hours were spent photographing the spectacle as the sun rose and slowly burnt away the ever changing mists. It was hard to pick just a few photos from the hundreds I took. This particular shot shows farm buildings directly below us emerging from the mist.
