Morning Glory

A glorious morning at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the Italian Dolomites. These three peaks looks so majestic from this vantage point. We hiked up here early in the morning to be able to catch the sunrise strike the side of these beautiful mountain peaks. This is the early morning blue hour, still with some faint stars present on the sky. A rather cold experience, the weather was clear and this resulted in temperatures below 0 celsius. Small ice crystals started to show up on top of cameras and the rest of the gear we had with us, quite funny to see!
