Photographer's Note

Odle Group as seen from the pastures near Santa Maddalena village in Val di Funes, late afternoon. The "first love" of Reinhold Messner, who was born there and start His serious climbing in this area.

Odle Group (Puez-Geisler) is the northwestern outpost of the Dolomites, famous of its north faces that drop for 1000 m into the Val di Funes (Villnöß valley). The highest peaks in the group are Furchetta and Sass Rigais (both 3025m).

It was the first stop during my trip through Italy, and must say, i was absolutely delighted by the Pure Nature the Dolomites can offer. Air clarity, strange quietness and breathtaking vistas around - i must come back there one day.

More from the location soon :-)
