Silent Night by Robert Marić
I woke up that day long before sunrise in order to catch this shot. The moon helped me a lot since I was using old camera which wasn’t able to take good photographs during the night while the moon was hiding below the horizon but in the morning the moon perfectly lit the mountains for my trusty 5D to capture this frame. When I got across the lake the first thing I noticed was how small our tent was looking in front of Mont Blanc massif, and as I was sipping on my morning tea and shooting moonlit Mont Blanc my comrade and conspirator in this adventure Ante just woke up and turned on his headlamp, probably to look for his favorite Quechua boots which he paid only 50€ and oddly enough they lasted during the entire trip (and I believe are still alive today). That light in tent was just the thing I needed to get the perfect shot to represent our voyage with just the tent, stars and dramatic Mont Blanc massif that shined like beacon of Europe embraced in cold moonlight. Note: later while looking at the photograph on large screen I noticed two small lights on Grand Jorasess which I assume where mountaineers taking their early asccent to conqure that treacherous north face.
