£25 with free UK shipping.

Located in north east Italy, the Dolomites is one of the world’s most photogenic mountain ranges and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Limestone spires and towers are surrounded by alpine meadows and pastures rich with flowers, accessed by panoramic paths and high mountain passes. Fast-flowing streams cascade down through woodlands to pass medieval villages and churches in the valleys. Castles, monasteries and historical war sites as well as alpine sports, festivals and events contribute to the rich Tyrolean culture. Italy’s Pale Alps are internationally renowned for their beautiful landscapes, warm alpenglow light and rich photographic opportunity.

Author and professional photographer James Rushforth describes 52 locations to visit and photograph in this 352 page photo location and visitor guidebook, illustrated with over 400 beautiful photographs.

Cascate Di Fanis & Cengia di Mattia

At the confluence of the Fanes, Travenenzes and Ra Vales valleys lie the remote Cascate di Fanis waterfalls, part of a hugely significant hydro-geological landscape that has helped shape the Parco delle Dolomiti d’Ampezzo.
