Dolomites are very famous for those amazing peaks painted with red at the sunset. That’s also the reason why I chose this place to shoot a sunset, hoping for strong direct light hitting the mountains during last few minutes of a spectacular sunset.

Some time ago we went to Warsaw for a few days, to visit the best restaurant in Poland, Atelier Amaro. I’ve decided to use that opportunity to take a few photos in the city. It’s been a while since I was in Warsaw last time, and it’s changed quite a bit. I was really surprised how modern this city looks like. This photo was taken from the Palace of Culture and Science. I got there a bit too late and the sunset was almost over. It was so…

I took this photo in Dolomites during our first sunset in that location. It’s a truly beautiful area and if you’re in Dolomites, this is one of must-see spots. This small chapel is located in a small village called Santa Magdalena and in the background you can see Sass Rigais and Furchetta peaks. At the proper time of the day, the light creates a spectacular view. (Click to see larger) Photo details: Nikon D800; 28-300mm f3.5-5.6; 1/6 sec at f/18; ISO 100.

We were waiting for the sunset when huge and dark clouds started gathering over the mountain. Light rain had already started falling at the place we were at, however, we decided to wait a bit and take some photos. This was one of them.

This photo was taken right outside of Füssen, Germany during one of our trip to Bavaria. We found this place when we were looking for a full mountain range view. The lake in front of you is called Bannwaldsee and in the background you can see the beginnig of beautiful Alps.

Carezza lake is surrounded by woods and there’s actually only one entrance point from which there’s a view at a beautiful mountain range. It was an early afternoon and the light was still harsh when facing south, also the blue sky wouldn’t add much to the scene. I noticed though that the clouds started gathering over the lake itself so I decided to walk the lake around and see how does it look from the other side, as I couldn’t really see what’s behind me because of high…

I took this picture while I was traveling around Dolomites. It was a couple of hours after the sunrise already and I was scouting for a good spot to shoot on the next day, when I found this spot. I wasn’t sure I’m gonna be back here on the next day, so I decided to take a couple of shots just in case. It turned that I didn’t come back there again, but after reviewing photos, it happen to be one of my favourite photos from that trip….

I took this photo while I was travelling around Dolomites, Italy. It was a really stormy weather and we were actually the only people there. Well, I’m not really surprised, it didn’t look promising. However, I had a feeling that being patient enough will bring some nice light along. I wasn’t mistaken, not this time at least… 🙂

(Click to see larger) The latest N-Photo Magazine, issue 05/2015, has just been released. Also in this issue you’ll find one of my photos. One of the things I love about mountains is the weather. You can be there in the middle of a storm, but being patient usually brings a nice reward along. This photo was taken in Dolomites, while driving through Sella Pass, on the way up. Even that it was the middle of the day, the weather and clouds played their part very well in…
