Chronicles of Särna become a blog.
April 2007 I moved to Sweden, and the Chronicles
of Särna were born. They were aimed to
be a way to share what I was discovering in my daily life, deeply inside
the Swedish nature. Four years later, the Chronicles take the shape of
what they basically have always been: a blog.
now on, this section will be about all my Scandinavian photo action, and
not just about where I live (albeit that will still be the most
they are, thus, The Chronicles
of Särna (and other stories from the North).
Photo Weekend is back! In cooperation with Idre Fjäll
Wiberg Hotel, the workshop will take place in September, 15th -18th

take part yearly to only one photographic contest, and not even every
year. I choose only those contests where the RAW original file is requested
to confirm the genuineness of
the awarded pictures; they are the only serious contests out there, and I
like to compete where there is no room for cheating. In the 2010 I chose
Maria Luisa, an international award with a good tradition which is
dedicated to a young mountaineer girl who is no more. For this reason also
I followed and advertised it in the last years, without taking part
though. Among the 11.500 photos from 49 countries, 4 of mine have been
awarded as "Finalistas", or "Highly commended" if
you like, in as many categories. Here

slide-show made with them.

the event is made in cooperation with Mora
municipality within the initiatives for the Vinterfest,
a main international music festival which is yearly celebrated in the
the next February issue, the magazine Rivista
della Natura sports my article "The Swan Lake".
It is my first contribution to the valuable magazine, a bimonthly rich in
contents which resists, and even thrives, in a nature editorial branch on
which furious winds are blowing in these last years.
