Dolomites
« on: April 10, 2014, 01:46:52 pm »

A couple of pictures from last year in October in the Dolomites and that autumn was especially dynamic weather-wise with lots of weather changes from snow storms, rain, clouds, sun, etc.

Very fine Hans!  Slight preference for the colors in the closer version.

Thanks very much for the comments.

The first one was shot with a Canon 5D mkIII and Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II lens at 180mm, f/8 and ISO 100 and a RRS tripod.

The second also Canon 5D mkIII and Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II lens at 35mm, f/8 and ISO 100 and also on a RRS tripod.

Both pictures were post processed in Lightroom 5 only.

They're both beautiful, but the light in the first is stunning.

Thanks very much. Alpe di Siusi is one of my favorite places in the Dolomites. Sometimes amazing scenery with clouds and light that is unique. I have been there many times, but this pictures is one of my favorites from there

Thanks again.

Earlier that same morning as the first picture was shot, the clouds were flowing through the lower valleys and pushed up over the passes and mountains which are about 3000 meters. we were standing at about 2500 meters altitude watching the scenery and the sun finally came in and illuminated the clouds. I was there with a group of 9 photographers on one of my Dolomite workshops.

One of the earlier shots were this one

Those mountains have soul!

My wife and I would enjoy bike touring through that landscape.  I would enjoy climbing some of the more moderate (easy) rock climbs that are ridiculously well protected by Yosemite standards.
