    Hiking In Mid Summer, pt. 1

    I shot these photographs as we were hiking up to Rifugio Longo and then to Lago del Diavolo. Wonderful hike, but we decided to go there when the weather was a bit too hot.

    The Way Back

    On our way back down from Piani Resinelli, we found a bit more of sun kissing the mountains around us and gifting us some fantastic views.

    Up There

    The view on the top was simply breathtaking and I grabbed many images. I especially liked the photo of the tiny people on the observation platform. That shot gives you a perfect sense of the scale.

    Changing Light

    And then the sun started to came out, painting the landscape with patches of beautiful light. The hike to the top was very enjoyable and, as before, the views to capture were countless. I especially loved the harsh contrast between the rocks and the grasses. Nature is always surprising and it’s incredible how grasses, trees, […]

    Cloudy Way Up

    A few weeks ago we went out for an easy hike near Lecco, Italy, in a place called Parco Valentino that leads you up to Piani Resinelli. What a stunning walk! It was very cold when we got there in the late morning, and it even snowed a bit. The sky was full of drama […]

  • Braies Lake – Day 2

    Braies Lake – Day 2

    We were back early next morning, and by early I mean around 10. Luckily, the sun was barely peeking from the top of the mountains, so we didn’t miss anything. I wanted to see some fog on the lake, but it was absurdly cold (around 0°C / 32°F) so the air was crisp and clear. […]

  • Braies Lake – Day 1

    Braies Lake – Day 1

    We went to the Braies Lake in late October, when the larch trees were already charmingly yellow. It was a bit late when we got there at around 4 PM, and the sun was just about to set behind the tall mountains that embrace the lake, but the light was so soft and beautiful! We […]
