La mostra che propone una selezione di mie immagini a carattere astronomico e raffiguranti fenomeni atmosferici aventi come sfondo gli splendidi paesaggi offerti da Torino e dai suoi monumenti e da altre zone della nostra penisola. Tra i soggetti favoriti, catturati in prossimità dell’alba e del tramonto, appaiono la Basilica di Superga, il Monte dei Cappuccini, la Mole Antonelliana, il laghi piemontesi e le Alpi.

The 10th International Conference on Light and Color in Nature was held on June 16-20 at the St. Mary’s College of Maryland campus in St. Mary’s City, Maryland.
In conjunction with the conference, the St. Mary’s College Boyden Art Gallery of Maryland had a photographic show of atmospheric optics with a resplendent array of over 140 printed photographs that capture stunning atmospheric conditions. This juried show received entries from scientists, meteorologists, and amateur photographers from around the world. The images depict the study of light’s interaction with Earth’s atmosphere and its landscape.
The exhibition has been running from 12 June – 30 September 2010 and I had the honor to have one of my pictures, “Crepuscolar rays over Isola d’ Elba“ (indicated with a red arrow in the image above) displayed during the exhibition.
Other view of the show room:
The Sky and the Stars of Aloysius Lilius
Cirò, Italy (19 July – 29 August 2010)
Cosenza, Italy (23 November -1 December 2010)
My pictures: “Thin Moon” and “Stormy occultation” have been selected within the 25 images to be exposed in July and December 2010 in Cirò and Cosenza (south of Italy), respectively, in connection with the “1st Aloysius Lilius“ photography contest.
The contest has been organized to celebrate the 500 anniversary of the birth of Luigi Lilio, important Italian astronomer that was “primary author” who provided the proposal that (after modifications) became the basis of the Gregorian Calendar reform of 1582. The crater Lilius on the Moon is named after him. In computer science, the Lilian date is the number of days since adoption of the Gregorian Calendar.
