Shown above is a lovely moonrise I observed over Procinto Mountain, in the Apuan Alps of Italy, on July 1, 2020. The waxing gibbous Moon nicely accents the craggy ridgeline. This limestone (Triassic age) prominence stands 1,453 ft (443 m) above sea level and is cloaked in chestnut, beech and ashMarble from the Apuan Alps is among the best quality in all of Europe.
