Photographer's Note

Near the town of Siusi on the western edge of the Dolomites is this ruined castle - Schloss Hauenstein (or Castelvecchio in Italian). This region was part of Austria until World War I, and the German language is still spoken here. The castle was built in the 1100s but is now a romantic ruin. A nice walk through the forest takes you to this site, where you can explore the ruins of the castle and take in views of the countryside.
