revelation of the dolomites

Sasso Lungo / Langkofel (3181 m) seen from Campitello di Fassa. It was on my way back from a short visit in Venice that I decided to take a detour through the Dolomites which I have never visited before.


I did not regret the two hours extra travel time passing the Rosengarten group, through the Fassa valley and back over the Sella pass. I knew about the beauty of the Dolomites but I was totally amazed driving through the region. A revelation! I will certainly go back with more time to spend.


I have chosen BW with for this shot mainly because I think it is a very good format for mountain peaks and grand landscapes. For me this shot embodies the beauty of the Dolomites in a classic alpine composition with the forest foreground and the peaks against the evening sky.
