Sepp Hackhofer - Drei Zinnen – Dolomites


The Dolomites are one of the most famous mountainranges within the Alps and also worldwide. The “Drei Zinnen” are one of the symbols of these beautiful mountains. I was born and grew up only a few Kilometers from this mountains, also called Tre Cime or Three peaks of Lavaredo. Even if hundreds of thousands of people visit the area, they have never lost there fascination. Every time I stand in front of these majestic walls, I feel humble. Here I caught this overphotographed motive in a very special moment after a snowfall on beginning of September.

    Indeed, the Drei Zinnen are overphotographed, but it's only now and then that I run into such powerful images as this one. The combination of good gear, a great composition, the long exposure time and of course the wonderful light reflected on the snow make it an aswome photo. Love it!
