Since visiting the Dolomites way back in 2010 for the first time I must admit that my enthusiasm to venture down from Munich into the Bavarian alps has lost a little of its glamour as nothing can compare to the geological splendour of this mountainous region in South Tyrol.
Sexten Dolomites 2010
An amazing landscape just waiting to be explored with some of the best trekking possibilities worldwide. I knew that this was to be a favourite landscaping destination.
Just 3 hours drive from where I live outside of Munich is a mountain paradise called South Tyrol which although relatively small has a concentration of some of the world’s most amazing mountain scenery.
Sexten Dolomites 2017
There are some places that you just have to visit at least a second time to realize just how awesome they are. Welcome to the Sexten Dolomites.
It has taken me almost seven years to repeat a visit to the Dolomites, I should be ashamed of myself as this really is a must see region with out of this world beauty, an absolute Mecca for us photographers.
Tuscany has been on my list of trips for quite some time now & so I decided to drive 750 km south to enjoy some of that typical Tuscan flair & landscape romantic.
Green rolling hills stretching to the horizon with puffy white clouds breaking up the monotony of an otherwise undramatic blue sky hang above farmhouses & villas surrounded by Cypress trees dotted throughout the landscape spending shadow if only momentarily. Medieval walled towns upon hillsides dominate a picturesque landscape, a landscape for creative minded painters, philosophers, poets, authors & for the odd photographer.
