Two days ago I finished my holiday in Italy.
We were in Italy between 23th of August and 3rd of September. We lived near Lago d'Iseo.
It was really beautiful time spent in really beautiful country and environment.
We were two times in mountains. First time near our lake, second in higher Alps. We wanted to reach Monte Adamello summit (3539 or 3554m). Unfortunatelly the day was too short. We should have slept in Rifuggio Garibaldi. Than it would have been possible for us to reach the summit. But on the other hand I reached my new record in mountains - 3150m! I saw a glacier first time in my life!!! Many great views! Amazing high mountains!!! I hope I will return there in the future!
We started over Temu (about 1200m), went through Lago d'Avio (1900m), Lago Benedetto (1929m), Lago di Venerocolo and Rifuggio Garibaldi (2550m) to Passo Brizio (3147m) - than same route down. Before this pass there were very interesting via ferrata - not long but very safe through almost vertical rocks. And on the pass we could have seen this view - glacier.
And again - La bella ITALIA.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek,

Beautiful composition of mountain with crepuscular ray projection. Contrast between dark landscape & dawn's early light is captivating. Crisp focus & compelling POV. Well done!

Hello Maciej,
the outline of the mountain is so pretty with the soft blue sky offers a lovely contrast. Excellent streak of ray seen through the sky.
