Parte inferiore di un altocumulus castellanus al tramonto.Questo tipo di nuvole sono così denominate per le protuberanze simili a torri che svettano verso l'alto dalla base della nube.La base della nuvola può formarsi da una altezza minima di 2000 metri ad una massima di 6000 metri.

I colori sono praticamente naturali, ottenuti con un bilanciamento mirato del bianco.Di artificioso solo un +5 alla vividezza su Photoshop.

Colours are virtually natural, obtained with a white balance aimed at this.Only a +5 to vividness with Photoshop.

Hallo Alessio
Thank you for sharing such a peaceful scene with us. Oh, how I wish I could have been there. It looks so serene. Isn’t nature just wonderful? Everywhere you look you see something different, and this image with its variation of colours are just so beautiful. I just miss my childhood when I see beauty like this, as we would lie on our backs on the grass looking at the setting sun and see all kinds of pictures in the sky. Best regards.

Ciao Alessio, gran bel cielo al tramonto, fantastici colori e splendida luce, bravo, ciao Silvio
