Here you can see the gorgeous Vajolet Towers, in their world famous southern side.
The clouds, which moved very quickly, are magically stretched due to a slightly long exposure taken before dawn, at the Passo di Laurino (2.621 m), in the heart of the Catinaccio (Rosengarten), Dolomites.

The moon was heading to the west, over the Croda di Re Laurino, so behind me and my camera, freeing the towers from darkness with some sort of feeble light, veiled by an ever-changing ocean of mist that for all night had silently wrapped the entire area... in a hushed otherworldly atmosphere...
The sun had not yet risen, but a far presence of light was coming from the east, providing three-dimensionality to the swirling clouds around the towers.

To be precise, this is a vertical composition thought as a possible alternative to a previous horizontal take.

It's all wonderful, but I especially like the mist near the lower left that sets off the near tower from the background.

I like the lighting here. Approximately how high is this pinnacle ?

Thanks!
Well, the highest tower visible here is the central one: Torre Stabeler (2.805 meters).
I know that it looks even higher the tower on the left, the Torre Delago (2.790 m), but it's just a matter of perspective.
Then on the right you can see the Torre Winkler (2.800 m)
