Your Shot photographer Isabella Tabacchi found a creative way to capture an image of this incredible scene of the Milky Way. “I went to Seiser Alm plateau to take some shots of the Milky Way. After a beautiful foggy sunset, I waited for a darker sky and I did a pano of the milky way arch,” said Tabacchi. “At about 11:30 pm the moon arose on the left of Langkofel peak and illuminated all the valley full of fog. I merged the landscape with the milky way and the one with the moonlight to have a image that symbolized completely what I lived. The darkness of the night can give us magic.” Photograph by Isabella Tabacchi
