Dolomiti 01

Every photographer worth their salt takes good images on a regular basis. These are the kind of images we are quietly pleased with and will probably post to a social media page for people to go “wow” or “amazing” and give the thumbs up emoticon. However, such images are quickly forgotten about and then sit on a dusty hard drive, stored at the back of a cupboard never to be seen again.

My alarm goes off at 6am, and I reluctantly pull myself from underneath the warm covers - the air is cold inside the refuge, it feels like one of those cool, crisp, clear mornings. The other photographers in our group rouse themselves as they hear me clattering around gathering camera, tripod and warm layers. Waiting outside, seeing a nice blue sky I enjoy the promise of a good morning of photography to come. 

Worldwide Explorer’s guides Marcus and Harry have just returned from leading six photographers on our first photo holiday to the Italian Dolomites. The aim of this trip was to explore the astounding scenery, and mountains, that the Dolomites offer. The sheer cliff faces, pinnacles and valleys of the Dolomites rival the very best in the world in terms of their beauty and photographic potential so we had no shortage of possible subjects.
