Moon and clouds

The entire Liguria was covered by a thick layer of clouds, all along its coast. As we rose higher and higher in the Ligurian Alps we slowly emerged, until we were under a clear blue sky and the soft blanket-like clouds below us.
After a day snowshoeing up Mt. Saccarello (c. 2200m) along the slopes of Monesi di Triora, the sun set, the moon rose, and a impressionist’s palette of colours tinged the darkening sky.
I tried to capture the delicate hues, but I still feel I have not conveyed the full magnificence of the scene.
