Monte Civetta

Monte Civetta

Monte Civetta in the Dolomites with storm filled skies at sunset. The photograph was captured from Rifugio Nuvolau, a small Italian mountain hut at an altitude of 2,575m. It sits atop a peak with wonderful 360 degree views and has sheer cliffs on each side. The only way to get to the hut in winter is on skis with skins and not surprisingly few people venture up there, as it really was treacherous. I felt lucky to return to the motorhome alive after the twilight downhill ski. In fact, while joyously photographing, nerves began to creep in..thinking about the dangers that lay ahead.

Mount Civetta's northwest face is the biggest rock face of the Dolomites, with a height of 1200 m in places and a length of 3 km.
