Photographer's Note

Cimon della Pala (3184 m) and the Pale di San Martino group reflected at Baita Segantini. Dolomites, Italy in June.

From my experience, there aren't many lakes in the Dolomites, which is one reason I was happy to get this reflection shot. It's a very common photo spot... lots of postcards from here... but I still like it!

This moment was towards the end of an epic day of hiking... I left the town of San Martino di Castrozza at sunrise and hiked all day, up and over several mountains in a big loop, ending up in this area near Cimon della Pala, the pointy mountain on the right. I spent several hours hiking around to different vantage points to see different angles on the mountain, but returned to this pond just before sunset. The weather calmed, as did the water, right before sunset.

My plan was to just walk all the way back to town down the road at night, but luckily somebody picked me up and gave me a ride back to town!

I spent a month in the Dolomites that summer, hiking just about every day... I've got a bunch more photos from these incredible mountains up on my site:
