[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cortina d’Ampezzo is a very famous mountain village in the heart of Dolomites. The main mountains of the region are Cristallo, Tofane (reaching also by telpherage) and Sorapiss, hard to reach by climbers. There are a lot of accomodations and two campings in Cortina.
On the Falzarego mountain pass (about 45 minutes from Cortina by car or bus) there are the tunnels created during the first World War by the Austrian and Italian Soldiers, and you can walk inside the mountain around these tunnels with a light to see and some part with a view from the wall of the mountain! You can walk until the refuge lagazuoi, and then go down by telpherage to the pass.

Prachtig zicht en goede schuilplaats

Beautiful natural framing, Ruud! I like this picture a lot, you just give us a glimse of the amazing beauty outside the shelter.
Take care,

Creative foreground framing for this view into the misty mountainscape.I like the graphic appeal of the foreground and the pastel colors of the background.

Hi Ruud

I like this view from a cave & the silhouettes formed by the sides. Excellent tonal range & sharpness. Good work.

great photo it has it-sown natural frame, seems pretty high also, about how many meters high are you . Cold, I bet!Color is great.So these tunnels then sheltered the soldiers they are then I suppose maybe made by nature and then man dug them deeper am I right?


Very cool! Nice choice of framing, and interesting history.
Good job!

Excellent picture with a marveous view.
Great job, but again its only 33.7 kb.
Uploading with more (upto 200kb makes the picture stronger)

Wow! I love the way you framed with natural, rocky frame the distant landscape covered by the clouds... I love the desaturated colours of that landscape - so characteristic with this type of weather! Just a masterpiece! tfs


Great framing and composition. One feels both safe and threatened by the elements you have captured. Well done.

Hi Ruud
Great pic. Great composition.

Hi Ruud

Nature here is in full use as the framework...and what a framework it is. The feel from this is so magical, so secret...it's that hidden pathway through the mountains to the land forgotten where mystical creatures and rare tribesman live, survived , untouched for 2000 years.

Not sure where i was off to then.

Well done and thnx for sharing this with us all.


Nice composition.
