Must admire the people and government of this place who haven't messed it up in the name of 'development'.
I can't imagine waking up in such a nice place and looking out the window and seeing this... I just can't... It would take my breath away!
I assume these are the Sesto Dolomites we all are ahhing about? To be precise, St. Magdalena is on the other side of Val Pusteria/Pustertal, actually in Villgratner muontain range, so quite far from Dolomites, which nonetheless are nicely visible from there and, no doubt, close the perspective of this frame in a magnificent way:)
This is the famous rosy light of the hours near sunset which makes Dolomites so radiant and attractive. Probably half an hour later the view would be even more impressive.
I think I will bookmark this so I can come and visit this photo when I'm stressed out. It just calms me. Absolutely gorgeous.
Beautiful. Sadly, you would never see a scene like that in the US. Developers would gobble that up in a flash and there would be a wal mart right where that church is.
@Ivo Kalvelis Hello, no, here it comes the Dolimiti. This is the Odle group in Italian, German or Geislergruppe. In Val di Funes / Villnoess
maybe you should get off your couch and get out and explore a little? Our good ol' U.S. of A. has an abundance of equally beautiful and mesmerizing places to enjoy.
@Ivan Tonon Oh yes, and another St. Magdalena in Funes, you are right, Ivan :)
Been skiing on the other side of Seceda:)
