Earlier, In the Südtirol
Before checking into the Kamaunhof, we had our first look at the Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy via a twisting side road coming up from the autobahn between Innsbruck and Bozen/Bozano. Cattle range gave way to orchard and vineyard, before reverting again at altitude to working hay fields near Kastelruth. Out for a morning walk with child, with the omnipresent ‘onion top’ church and the soaring peaks of these mountains, this lady above provides a jolt of unnatural colour in this green-hued environment. Here are a few more images from this day – the start of our Dolomite dreaming – before we go deeper into the mountain passes and snow covered fields in the next few posts from this dramatic landscape.
Südtirol, Italy, 2014.
