Sexten Dolomites 2017

Gallery

So near & yet so far away, living in Munich I am only 3 hours drive from a region that has so much to offer in regards to unbelievable natural beauty but I enjoyed every minute of this second rendezvous.

The Dolomites are something else. I have lived in southern Germany for just over 12 years now & thought that the mountains here & in Austria/Switzerland were impressive until I visited South Tyrol. These mountains are just unmistakably unique. I decided to rent a car for a couple of days & drove the 3-4 hours from Munich over Innsbruck into South Tirol over the Brenner Pass.

One thing I noticed on my first evening was that the light is somewhat different to that on the German side of the Alps. I have to admit that I probably live on the wrong side. Beggars can’t be choosers as they say. It has to be said that from a photographic aspect the Dolomites are unrivaled by anything else I have experienced up to now. The Three Peaks of Laveredo are probably the best known peaks in the Sexten Dolomites & this was the target of my trip for the following 4 days.

It was early Autumn and although beautiful weather prevailed over most of my stay, the evenings were pretty chilly as were the mornings at sunrise. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice freezing your wotsits off waiting for the sun to splash some colour and warmth onto the landscape. Hence I choose often to sleep in my car, then I just have to open the door, slip my shoes on & grab the camera. After the warm pastel mood diminishes I return to the car & enjoy my first coffee of the day. These moments are what it is all about.
