gallery update no. 09Gallery Update No. 9 - South Tyrol Edition

Tre Cime di Lavaredo! The Dolomites are such a beautiful place especially in autumn, the trees get wonderful colors and the region is not so much crowded. I spent there five days and had always the best weather: from the morning to the evening sun without clouds. Sounds more beatiful than it is, for a photographer are some clouds are always welcome. But nothing to complain. I took some nice shots which I want to present you in my new gallery update. And last but not least several shots of the Umbal Valley from September.

There are also new photos in the Cityscapes and Aerials category. So take your time and make a visit to the gallery.
