Hi all and enjoy them if you want.

Sony Alpha 900, Leitz Elmarit 135 lens, a strong and cold wind facing me and my camera, HDR elaboration.

wow. what a place that is. Were you perched on the edge of a cliff to get those? they really have a feeling of wind, cold and isolation.

Sure looks wild and desolate up there! Not fit for humans!

Sandro are those the Italian Alps? I love the cold wind blowing the snow!

Thank you much for attention casil403, Bambi and Mad Aussie.
Yes this is a scene of last sunday in a valley (val Varaita) of sea Alps (s/w of the Alps).
The problem (but also the interest of the image) was the wind, and the wind pushing snow on me and my camera.
I was not so near to those (not so high, about 2800-3000 mt) highs, but a 135mm. lens was sufficient. probably also better a 150 or 180. I know and I adore that 180 f. 3.4 Apo-Telyt Leica made in "your" Canada: unbelievable quality, but good also this less expensive leica Elmarit 135 f. 2.8.
Again thank you, and bye,
