That day I decided to go to the Fanes's waterfalls in order to take some pictures. I set out very early in the morning, because I had to ride a long time to get to the place. I walked through both of the trails shown on my map, to spot all the canyons and waterfalls from the several lookout. Rain had been copious during last days, or better it rained for many days in a row. So that the waterfalls were plentiful and powerful. I couldn't have taken any photos from the lower level, at the very beginning of the big stream, at the bottom of the main canyon, due to too much wetness in the air which was tarnishing my lens. Completed my “wet” work over there, I came back home, stopping for a while at Misurina's lake in order to find some unusual slice of landscape to shoot. After parking my car, I walked through the circular trail which coasts this green alpine lake. There was a cloudy sky above me, with a big chance of heavy rain in the next few minutes. After going across the east coast, I walked along the west coast on a grassy path with, now and then, small stony beaches on my right. At the moment the sky was ripped and let through, just for a minute, a wonderful golden sunbeam which hit the first row of trees of the forest along the lake, just in front of me. Clouds were throwing heavy dark shadows all around, but this little slice of coast was lighted by this warm golden light that I tried to capture in this shot.
