It feels good to be back in the water with the camera.
The good viz (almost 3m!) called for some portraits and this sociable cuttlefish proved to be a good subject!

What's a better opening for this collection that some shots from a recent trip to Iguazu falls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iguazu_Falls), one of the largest waterfall system in the word? The system is split between Brazil and Argentina and is surrounded by two natural parks of amazing beauty!

I finally had time to sit down and review the past year in photography. A year full of trips. So packed in fact that often I litteraly did not have the time to pack my DSLR. I relied often only on my phone and I was often surprised by the result!

Last year was full of encounters, especially with sharks! I encountered at least 5 species for the first time! But ithas also been the year of the big shools of Sipadan (jackfishes and barracudas) and Palau (more jackfishes, snappers and many, many more species) and a lot of attention to the smalles creature of the oceans. I am already planning some trips for 2015, if anyone is interested in joining any, send me a message!

Time to look back at the year just past. A year of travels, friends and experiences. China, South Africa, Malaysia, Italy, Palau, and also my adoptive home, Singapore, all provided interesting opportunity for photos. Even more cherised, all that the photos don't show: the travel, the people, the food (yes, no Instagram yet)!

Have a happy new year everyone :)

Wow, wow, wow! It’s 22:00 here on the International Space Station (we’re on GMT time), I’m approaching the end of my first day in space and I cannot even begin to describe the experience of the past 30 hours or so. Really, I don’t know.

Saying good bye to my family, suiting up for launch, getting to the launch pad, riding up the elevator, strapping in... and then the launch, this wild ride to orbit and then an abrupt engine cutoff and feeling my body wanting to float off my seat. And the first glimpses of Earth: my first sunrise, the stars. My first sight of the ISS as we approached (more to that later) and then floating through the hatch into the warm embraces of Sasha, Elena and Butch.

Wow, wow, wow! It’s 22:00 here on the International Space Station (we’re on GMT time), I’m approaching the end of my first day in space and I cannot even begin to describe the experience of the past 30 hours or so. Really, I don’t know.

Saying good bye to my family, suiting up for launch, getting to the launch pad, riding up the elevator, strapping in... and then the launch, this wild ride to orbit and then an abrupt engine cutoff and feeling my body wanting to float off my seat. And the first glimpses of Earth: my first sunrise, the stars. My first sight of the ISS as we approached (more to that later) and then floating through the hatch into the warm embraces of Sasha, Elena and Butch.

The first clumsy attempts at “flying” , having our first meal, Butch giving us the toilet brief, Terry calling me to watch a sunrise from the Cupola.. and so many more impressions. It will take my brain days to process it all and I promise I will share as much as I can!

For now, I will tell you of one moment, which was so fortunate and unexpected. You know, when you fly to the Space Station in the Soyuz, unless you are the Commander sitting in the center seat, you can only see your destination from far away in the black and white camera view (the same image that is transmitted to Mission Control and usually shown during media coverage of docking). As a left-or right seater, you only have a side view and there’s no way to see the Station until you’re really close and parts of it start coming in your field of you. Before the flight, previous Soyuz fliers had reminded me to start looking for the Space Station in the side window in the last part of the approach and so I did: but I wasn’t prepared in the least for what I saw when we were at about 30-40 meters.

I had released my shoulder straps quite a bit at that point, so I was floating over my seat. As I turned to look outside, at first I looked back and saw one of our Soyuz solar panels, which I had seen before of course. Then my eyes caught something in the peripheral view. And as I slowly turned my gaze and when I realized what I was seeing, I was overcome by pure amazement and joy:  the Space Station was there, but not just any view. The huge solar panels were flooded in a blaze of orange light, vivid, warm almost alien. I couldn’t help exclaiming something aloud, which you can probably hear in the recordings of our docking, since at that point we were “hot mic”  with Mission Control. Anton reminded me of that and so I tried to contain my amazement and return to the docking monitoring. When I peaked again later, the orange glow was gone. 

Butch told me later that he had heard my amazement on com when  "the Station had turned orange.”  I didn’t know, but apparently there’s only a few seconds during day-night transition that the Station is lit by that amazing orange glow. And it happened to be exactly when I peaked outside!  I feel very fortunate that I had such a unique first glimpse of our human outpost in space: such a great welcome!

Which was only trumped, by the way, by the amazing welcome our veteran crewmates Sasha, Elena and Butch prepared for us!

Immediately after our arrival they took us to the Service Module to say hello to our friends and relatives in Baikonur and as soon as we have a few minutes break in the cm coverage they started to “ set the table”  with all the food they had already warmed for us!

Scale matters

I studied some pictures taken at Huang Shan before going but I hadn't realised the scale and size of all the peaks and valleys.

Let me try to give some sense of scale: can you see the little pavilion on the right? And the huge cloud of mist rising on the left?

On my way back from a (too) short trip to Huang Shan I stopped in Hongcun for trying my luck with a couple of shots. Of course, the mass of other tourists would not make it easy... Well, I tried!

Doesn't this thursday deserves  a little bit more colors?

Here is a Psychedilc Bat Wing Slug (Sagaminopteron psychedelicum). This (very) little guy isn't shy when it comes to show colors...

If you want to see some more small creatures from the Philippines, you can also check my web:  http://bit.ly/anilao_ac

I've spent the last couple of days in the company of some amazing photographers in Anilao.

I have so much to learn...

Thanks to +Anilao Photo Hotel for the great time and support!

Here are a couple of Longnose hawkfish (Oxycirrhites typus). Not the rarest of species but I like the composition :)

Quick and dirty, just to tell you that I made it back alive form Hong Kong!

(PS: after the optical realignment, my 10-22 is back to a nice level of detail resolution!)

With a bit of delay, I've just realized that one of my shark photos made it into the next +Plus One Collection volume!

If you haven't already, participate to the founding campaign: you can get a book with some stunning photons, printed with standing-out dedication and, at the same time, help out with with a good cause: www.savingeliza.com

Thanks +Ivan Makarov  for the hard work you are putting into it!

Did you say shark?
A gallery of shark shots:
www.alecere.com/Underwater/Shark

It's always sad to realize how the media keep "jumping the shark" every year, on occasion of the shark week.

Just to clarify:
Are shark predators?
Yes. They are apex predators, so they don't really have many animals going after them. Apart from humans, of course.

Are they mysterious?
They live in the oceans, an environment we don't really know that much about. We don't know much about a lot of very small critters in the sea either...

Are they dangerous?
As with every wild animal, interactions with humans can be unpredictable. Statistically, it's more likely to be bitten by your dog than by a shark anyway... (and I love my dog!) 

Are they useful?
Yes! a lot! they are part of the marine ecosystem. They... more »

Are they useful?
Yes! a lot! they are part of the marine ecosystem. They evolved with it. As every other species, when we mess up with their populations we are affecting the whole ecosystem. What's particularly important with sharks is that they are apex predators: a small numb rod them affects a large area and a large number of individuals of other species.

I hope my friends at +Underwate +Underwater Thursday reciate this little rant.

Explore new compositions

It was the end of a quiet and unusually warm check dive in the waters of Nusa Lembogan (Bali, Indonesia).

The crystalline clarity of the water and the patterns of the sand were suggesting me all kinds of compositions but I needed a subject. Then I found this soft coral, I gently landed on the bottom and found the light I wanted.

Ah, it felt so good to dive again this past weekend...

Nothing new, only work

I am somehow impressed by how many people reached out to me in the last months asking me if everything was ok, and why I am not as active as I used to be.

I am sorry if I have somehow disappointed someone, and possibly even a bit flattered :)

In any case, the reason is simple: my life away from social medias is very busy. I still take a lot of pictures but I do not have the time (and strength sometime) to edit and share them in a timely manner.

I want to offer here a glimpse of what we do in the lab where I work at +Centre for Quantum Technologies:
here is a detail of a magneto-optical trap (http://bit.ly/1nHTonT) that we use to trap rubidium atoms. Can you see the blue fluorescence, somewhere in between the metallic holder in the glass cell?
The light that's saturating the sensor of my camera is coming from a laser beam... more »

The light that's saturating the sensor of my camera is coming from a laser beam scattered by some millions of rubidium atoms trapped in a very small volume.

What do we do with those atoms? Well, in this particular case, we use and additional laser beam to trap a single one of them (do you see the back part of a strong focusing lens on the right side of the holder?) and then use this well localised single atom to learn how we can improve the interaction with single photons.

Soft colours over the Mole Antonelliana

Thanks to +mamo delpero I had the chance to look at Turin from a vantage point.

Editing this view (after two months...) I realise the real power of virtual connection: they can become personal one.

BTW, check +mamo delpero and get ready to be amazed!
