It’s been quite around here, because for most of the summer my wife and I have been busy adapting to our new role as parents. And naturally, you don’t do a lot of hiking with a two or three months old, so photography opportunities have been scarce and I actually didn’t assume I would be able to get into landscape photography at all this year. But now we’ve spent the last few days in Bolzano, capital of South Tyrol, our first vacation trip as a young family. And since the weather was great, I spent one morning at one of my most anticipated mountain lakes since a long time: Lago di Carezza, beautifully framed by the Latemar mountains.
The drive there was just a half hour from our place in Bolzano, and since it was a Tuesday morning, I was alone with just 4-5 other photography enthusiasts. And I have to admit, the place easily makes my top five of most beautiful mountain lakes – probably only topped by Lago di Braies, Eibsee and maybe Seealpsee in Allgäu. In any case, it was a beautiful experience to spend a morning at a mountain lake again and I’m very grateful to have experienced a full sunrise, allowing to take a series of pictures from the first, reddish touch of light to the orange-colored mountain tips until the bright sunlight flooded the place.
South Tyrol and the Dolomites never cease to amaze me, and there are still many places there on my list for future travels. Looking forward!
