Cinque Torri Panorama

Cinque Torri Panorama

The five towers perched on their pedestal above the Falzarego Pass in the Italian Dolomites are a sight to behold. The open air war museum there is a stark reminder of the terrible events that took place there during the First World War despite looking so idyllic today. This shot was taken at 6:30am as the sun was coming up, with a lovely cloud inversion down in the valley. The Lagazuoi and Tofana di Rozes can be seen in the background.

Last light at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo

Last light at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo

A couple of weeks either side of solstice the sun sets on the Tre Cime north faces themselves. This particular evening I didn't think I was going to get anything due to heavy clouds in the west. However just at the sun was setting the sun came through perfectly illuminating the towers.

A story of three...

A story of three...

Taken on a superb winter ski tour around the Tre Cime in the Italian Dolomites. Despite been very busy in the summer the area is almost completely deserted in the winter allowing you to fully appreciate the spectacular scenery in solitude. The central tower, Cima Grande is one of the classic six alpine north faces and is highly coveted during the summer months.

Alpi di Siusi light play

Alpi di Siusi light play

Alpi di Siusi (Seiser Alm) is Europes highest mountain plateau and provides spectacular views of Sassolungo. Here there was some superb light been created as the thunderstorm approached. The area is particularly famous for its wild flowers which are just starting to come out. The pastureland is dotted with very photogenic little huts that provide excellent foregrounds to the mountain backdrop.

Rifugio Locatelli

Rifugio Locatelli

Painting with light at Rifugio Locatelli in front of the Tre Cime North Faces. The rifugio is fantastically situated and an overnight stay is definitely recommended to anyone staying in the area. One of my favourite places in the Italian Dolomites, especially in the evening when the light is incredible.
