Stunning view over Santa Maddalena church and the Dolomites.

Photography Tips

There are several spots nearby. This was along a steep walking path and at crossroads. There's mediocre traffic which might affect the outcome if shooting long exposure.
There's beautiful light around sunset and at blue hour and then later you can shoot the stars. There can be a good amount of light coming from the village behind the church which can be disturbing. Not sure if they are ever turned off at night.

Travel Information

Car can be parked nearby in the village or on the side of the road and then walk to this location to choose the best spot. This location was uphill and might be a good idea to try out several locations.

Awesome photo. I will be there toward the end of July. I am curious as to how you got the light in the center right of the shot and the mountains. Post processing or was there a moon out?

Thanks! I spent a good amount of time in the location and was there already before sunset which was when the light was at that spot. There was also a good amount of post processing done. I stacked three images to get this result. Enjoy your trip!

This shot is so outstanding and so different than any "similar" shot I have seen so far because you filled each plane of the photo with beauty: the stars in the blue sky, the majestic Dolomites in the middle and quaint Santa Maddalena underneath it all. For this, one does not have to have coordinates but talent!
