14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

I took this shot in Castelluccio di Norcia last Winter. There were many earthquakes in this area from last August; last Sunday Morning a tremor of 6.5 degrees, one of the strongest of the last 10 years, destroyed houses, churchs, streets, monuments of the centre of Italy and so many people had to escape. I went so many times in that places with my friends, and I loved taking pictures there, in front of the Vettore mount and I'm very sad to hear all these facts. I dedicate this picture to the beauty of that places and I hope they will boom again.
