Photographer's Note

This is a view of the small Lago di Dobbiacco, at the beginnings of the Val di Landro, a wonderful valley that runs from the Alta Val Pusteria down to the south to the village of Carbonin and the Lago di Landro and then by a pass is possible to go in the Veneto Region to the Lake of Misurina, the Cadore and the Cortina district.

That small valley have a fantastic range of mounts on the both sides, vertical peaks higher more than 2.900 meters. It's long 13.5 kms and wide few hundreds of meters, and so have a great impact , as a long, long fjord...without the sea, but just with a small lake and a small river.
The German name of this small valley is Hohlenstein Tal.

The mounts on the picture are from the left to the right:

Croda di Baranci - 2.904 meters
Cima Tre Scarpieri (Dreischusterspitze) - 3.152 meters
Monte Rudo - 2.607 meters
Picco di Vallandro - 2.839 meters

Val di Landro is one of the most beautiful valley that i saw all around the world.

Converted in B/W.

The POV of the image was the table of a small typicall restaurant on the lake where we had a good lunch open-air:
excellent Pappardelle con sugo di cinghiale.
(large noodles of Common Buckwheat with Wild Boar ragù).
And a bottle of good Marzemino from Trento Province!

Jesus...i'm hungry at 10.00 a.m.!!!
