Located in north east Italy, the Dolomites is one of the world’s most photogenic mountain ranges and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Limestone spires and towers are surrounded by alpine meadows and pastures rich with flowers, accessed by panoramic paths and high mountain passes. Fast-flowing streams cascade down through woodlands to pass medieval villages and churches in the valleys. Castles, monasteries and historical war sites as well as alpine sports, festivals and events contribute to the rich Tyrolean culture. Italy’s Pale Alps are internationally renowned for their beautiful landscapes, warm alpenglow light and rich photographic opportunity.

Author and professional photographer James Rushforth describes 52 locations to visit and photograph in this 352 page photo location and visitor guidebook, illustrated with over 400 beautiful photographs.



"I enjoyed reading this book; so much so that my girlfriend, who travelled with me for the first part of my recent trip within the Dolomites, was telling me to put it down in bed; on occasion, she remained in the car and I would venture off into the landscape on a reccie, only to come back and find her buried in it!" - Ollie Taylor (read the review
