Cathedral, Mountain, Moon

Cathedral, Mountain, Moon

Here’s a great discussion starter on the creative process and, perhaps, the work required to create something like this photo of a near-perfect alignment of cathedral, mountain, and moon

The Astronomy Picture of the Day for December 25, 2023, featured a breathtaking image titled “Cathedral, Mountain, Moon.” Captured by photographer Valerio Minato in Piedmont, Italy, this remarkable photo showcases a rare triple alignment of the Basilica of Superga, Monviso mountain, and the crescent moon. The image, a result of persistent effort over six years and thwarted by bad weather five times, finally succeeded under perfect conditions. This stunning shot also highlights the ‘da Vinci glow’ – Earthlight illuminating the moon’s surface, creating a captivating and ethereal scene.
