Lake Pietranzoni is a small body of water of glacial origin located in the municipal area of L'Aquila on the mid-plateau of Campo Imperatore, in a place characterized by morainic deposits and known as the Pietranzoni plain. It is entirely surrounded by the Gran Sasso d'Italia massif: to the north-west from the central ridge with the main peaks between Pizzo Cefalone, the crest of Monte Portella, Monte Aquila and Corno Grande, to the north-east from the eastern ridge is Monte Brancastello , Monte Prena and Monteicie and to the south from the southern offshoots of the massif.

Photography Tips

Excellent subject in the foreground, it allows you to shoot both sunset and sunrise towards the great horn of the Gransasso.
Also an excellent point to perform a startrail, the position of the North Star in summer is just to the right of the Gransasso.
