Dedicata ad Anna Paola Cracco, che tanto ama queste montagne, ma dall'altro versante.
Note: I can not expect everyone to know the Three peaks. Are the first mountains in the background, left.

The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Italian for "the three peaks of Lavaredo"), also called the Drei Zinnen (German, literally "three merlons"), are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. The three peaks, from east to west, are:
Cima Piccola/Kleine Zinne ("little peak")
Cima Grande/Große Zinne ("big peak")
Cima Ovest/Westliche Zinne ("western peak").
The peaks are composed of well-layered dolostones of the Dolomia Principale (Hauptdolomit) formation, Carnian to Rhaetian in age, as are many other groups in the Dolomites (e.g., the Tofane, the Pelmo or the Cinque Torri).
Until 1919 the peaks formed part of the border between Italy and Austria. Now they lie on the border between the Italian provinces of South Tyrol and Belluno and still are a part of the linguistic boundary between German-speaking and Italian-speaking majorities. The Cima Grande has an elevation of 2,999 metres (9,839 ft). It stands between the Cima Piccola, at 2,857 metres (9,373 ft), and the Cima Ovest, at 2,973 metres (9,754 ft).

This is a superb panorama of the Dolomite Region, with the valley and peaks captured simultaneously. The colors and resolution are flawless.

Ciao Renzo ,
The rocky cliff in the FG creates an excellent sense of depth . Like the sky , and the shades of the clouds on these superb dolomitic summits .

Ti ringrazio, Renzo, per questa bellissima foto. Ma ti ricordi che tempo fa ti ho raccontato del mio bisnonno Kassewalder e del mio nonno Cracco, entrambi soldati durante la Grande Guerra, che pur inconsapevolmente si sparavano a vicenda? Uno stava di là, nel versante Italiano, l'altro di qua,in quello austriaco. Noi due facciamo lo stesso, no? Ma in modo non bellicoso. Se potessi, ti lancerei stelle alpine e genziane. Ma ho un problema: proibitissimo raccogliere questi fiori! Sai che razza di multa mi beccherei? Così di devi considerare omaggiato idealmente. Va bene lo stesso, no?

It is a beautiful mountains panorama of Italian Alps. You had perfect day for this shot. It looks as an excellent place for hiking. Great colors, light, sharpness and interesting note.

The mountain peaks are well captured here; the cloud patterns complements thems, as well as creating interesting tonal shades to the mountains. Your selection of this angle makes this composition something more panoraamic.
