The Dolomites National Park Tour/Workshop – 3rd to 7th April 2017
The Dolomites National Park is one of the most picturesque in Europe. With high mountain peaks and waterfalls it has become a place I fell in love with and i’m sure you will to. Join myself and Ben Holland on this amazing 5 day tour/workshop which will be an incredible adventure while photographing some of the most breath taking scenery on the continent. You can look at my post from a scouting trip we did there in November here.
Travel from Venice Marco Polo Airport to Dobbiaco where we will be based for the trip – On arrival get unpacked and go see some local areas while photographing the local architecture. Sunset location will be at Lago Di Braise a truly stunning lake high in the mountains.
At Sunrise we will return to Lago Di Braise which at sunrise can get a stunning sun kiss on the mountain. We will spend a couple of hours hiking around the lake until the sun gets slightly higher then head to Campo Tures. This area has awesome meadows and even a castle we can stop and photograph. We will explore the area through till sunset finding unique angles and images that aren’t over photographed. Including a stop at some lovely waterfalls.
This is the day you need to get your hiking boots on and ready for witnessing one of the best mountain ranges in the area, Tre Cime di Lavaredo. 3000 meters above sea level, this mountain range offers a stunning view from any angle you look. The accent we complete will only be around 300 metres so don’t panic we won’t make you do the full climb. We park near the top and spend a few hours hiking until the sun starts to drop then we will set up for sunset. On our last rip we witnessed a near white out with the most spectacular fog that lit up from every angle.
We will head on a bit of a drive to Val di Funes, here we will be photographing the famous Dolomites meadows. The churches and architecture have a back drop of enormous “pale” mountains. Most of the day will be spent exploring the area, and shooting away as we drive (obviously stopping to shoot).
We will make our way to back to Venice Marco Polo with stops on the way. We couldn’t miss out Lago Di Dobbiaco so this will be our sunrise stop. After we have finished there we will drive back through the Tre Cime mountain range, we will be stopping on the drive as there is plenty of time before our flight home. The drive will be stunning so be prepared to take it all in, as we exit the Dolomites National Park.
Please note these are rough guidelines, if weather permits we will squeeze more in. We will also be getting out to shoot astro images if the cloud is clear enough. In the evenings if we don’t get out shooting I will guide you through processing your images, nice chilled time while learning some new techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop.
