Who knows how many times we've all seen this light... intangible, delicate, golden, mixed with mist... able to give life, form and depth to the landscape, just with a simple touch of grace
A kind of light which I love very much, maybe also because a little less inflated.
Not a sunset, not a sunrise... it's just the very first light of the day (after sunrise).
In addition to the usual shots with alpenglow taken the previous evening, and a few sunrise pics, in a place like this I've thought to take advantage of this subtle light to portray the geometric forms, so typical of this area!
In this shot you can see: Lagazuoi ridge, Lastoni di Formin (just the summit side), the massive mount Pelmo, Nuvolau hut (very small, but it is there!), mount Averau.
There is also a bird flying in the fresh morning air... and even a cable from the cable car, thankfully only visible in the high definition file. Unfortunately, the sublime natural beauty of the Dolomites is often spoiled by too many facilities of various kinds. That's a pity...
