Dolomites (part two)

One of the most memorable aspects of photography in the Dolomites is just how high some of the mountains are in this range. Many of the passes are impressive with panoramic vistas that take your breath away. On one of the really bright and sunny days we headed for the Falzararego Pass, which has some great alpine habitats. The pass is located in the province of Belluno, connecting Andr├íz and Cortina d’Ampezzo and levels out around 2,105m. The views from the top of the mountains were impressive and well worth seeing on a day too bright and hot for macro photography.
