Concord at midnight

Concord at midnight

by Alessandro Lechmann

This picture was taken at midnight from the research station at Jungfraujoch in the central swiss alps. The Jungfrau glacier gently moves down to the Konkordiaplatz (literally: Place of concord) where it meets several other glacier, which eventually merge to the Aletsch glacier.
In the background, city lights being reflected at a cloud front imitate an evening atmoshpere which interestingly mixes with stars and mountain shadows cast by the moonlight.
