Just purchased my first Nikon, Waiting delivery. Photography is my passion, even though I have only used fixed lens up to this point (Fuji S8200 ) Looking so forward to my D5200
Beautiful picture!...but somehow it reminded me of the SNL Coneheads in single file walking on the other side of a wall..
A million years from today I wonder how different the inhabitants of that time will think these were built for, and by whom. A religion, or a way to observer the constalations?
Yes, otherworldly is the key word. So beautiful in all the many ways expressed in the photograph. I love the perfect star filled sky behind the Charcoal ovens and the mountain-like structure in the background to the right. Really fascinating!
Light gathering long exposures reveal wonders of the night sky that we don't see with the "naked" eye. Our sun is one of the multitude of stars in "our" galaxy, seen edge on here in this photo. No doubt we are sharing this galaxy with a lot of other sentient life forms.
The row of similarly shaped ovens makes a great foreground for this night sky panorama. They seem like the dwellings of a tribal race in a science fiction movie.
@carlos sutter they were built in 1876 by italian masons that that specialized in the ovens called carbonari.. the ovens prepared and made charcoal from harvested timber..
