Dolomites sunset
« on: February 22, 2023, 09:55:57 »
Hi, last month I went on a hike in the Dolomites (Italy) to photograph the sunset. The photos were taken in Valfredda at 2100m. Strangely it wasn't very cold. I waited for the moon to rise before returning home.

Nice ! Lovely place where I did a lot of motor biking. Pictures seem a bit too dark / underexposed.

Really nice snowy scenes - someone have been skiing those slopes. Good timing and exposure with the moon.

Thank you,
@MFloyd: yes, maybe they are a little underexposed, but I tried to recreate the light conditions that my eye saw, a magic feel...
@Øivind Tøien: in the afternoon there was someone skiing off-piste

Bye

Hi, ezio, welcome to Nikongear!

I love these spectacular landscapes.  The last one with the moon is my favorite.

Thanks Enzio.

I really like #  2, 3 & 4.
The exposure of 2 & 3 reflects what I imagine it would have been like a little after sunset
#4 is lovely
