The Dolomites. Possibly one of the most beautiful, most accessible mountain ranges in the world. I was there for the first time this October, and I've got a feeling I will be going back. Lots.

This was the product of an early morning, cloudy start. Hiking up through the darkness however brought me through the cloud, right to the crest of the conditions and the bottom of the bowl of clear blue sky. Here, in swirling fog and light, was this stunning valley. Broken rocks scattered like bones, and above it these red-gold peaks in the morning sun. This was definitely a pinch-yourself moment as a photographer - I've dreamed of conditions like this so many times - and it lived up to the dreams to be there and capture it in person!
