Livigno is a town in the the province of Sondrio, in the region of Lombardy, Italy, located in the Italian Alps.

Livigno is located 1,816 metres above sea level. Livigno's main river is called Aqua Grandaor Spöl. Trepalle, a frazione in the municipality of Livigno, is considered Europe's highest inhabited parish. Livigno was once a traditional and cultural village. Livigno is one of the few Italian villages which do not belong to the drainage basin of the Mediterranean Sea but to the Black Sea basin. A part of the old village was completely destroyed in the 1960s by the creation of a reservoir, the Lago di Livigno.

Lago di Livigno or Lago del Gallo is a reservoir in the Livigno valley. The lake is mostly in Italy whereas the Punt dal Gall arch dam is crossed by the border with Switzerland .
The lake's surface area is 4.71 km².

The reservoir has a capacity of 164 million m³. Its minimum and maximum water levels above sea level are at 1,700 metres and 1,805 metres respectively. Since its construction, this lake had been off-limits for any activity, such as wind-surfing or rowing, until the summer of 2005, when Italy's National Rowing team was authorized to train on the lake.

Hi Adrian,
Beautiful mountainscape with soft lighting and delicate cast to produce a nice texture all over.
There's depth of field following the course of the river.
Great perspective!
Well done.

beautiful visibility on those harsh mounts with that blue sky

Wow! Fantastyczne zdjecie. Uwielbiam takie klimaty... goreczki, osniezone szczyty, gorskie jeziorka, krysztalowo czyste powietrze,...
Piekna kompozycja kadru.

Hi Adrian
Poerful landscape with a great capture of the majestic mountais. Excellent composition showing the level the water some time before, great detail.

Hi Adrian,

Impressive reservoir and landscape! Great view of this vista from this POV. Good sharpness and handling of light. It seems the water level in this reservoir was very low judging from the high water mark.

GReat photo! TFS.
