In this week, as planned, we photographed all the most beautiful spots in the Dolomites.
The scheduled spots were:
Three Peaks of Lavaredo, Cadini di Misurina, Pale di San Martino, Braies Lake (Pragser Wildsee), Carezza Lake (Karersee) and other lesser known spots.
Rain was forecast that week for the first few days and indeed it did, but it is amazing how the weather changes so quickly in the Dolomites.
On the first day of the tour we took a short hike below the Tre Cime Di Lavaredo (Drei Zimmen). Photographer Giulio Cobianchi had predicted the arrival of a strong disturbance, so the group was able to take the first photos and get back just in time before gusts of wind and heavy rain. After the downpour, the situation totally calmed down and at night the group was able to photograph the Milky Way in the Cadini di Misurina under incredibly clear skies.
A few days later we were locked in the van, in front of the Pale di San Martino, waiting for the rain to stop, because photographer Giulio Cobianchi had informed the group that soon the rain would stop and there could be a perfect situation for taking pictures. In fact a few minutes after the downpour, a double rainbow exploded in the sky and the whole group was so excited! The group ran out of the van like crazed rockets and were running in all directions to capture that incredible light that had been created. It was a very funny scene thinking back later!
During the week, the weather provided great light situations for landscape photography, and the group was able to go on their planned hikes, take pictures, and also enjoy some relaxation and good food at typical restaurants in the Dolomites, eating local cuisine.
Below are some backstage photos from our Dolomites Photo Tour.
