Santa Maddalena

Santa Maddalena

Another iconic shot from the Dolomites, the church of Santa Maddalena is a very famous spot for photographers, especially at sunset when the soft orange light hits the Dolomites mountains in the background.
I stayed two evenings to get this shot ; the first evening I arrived a bit too late and orange light started fading before I could set up my tripod. Also the sky was totally cloudless. I therefore decided to spend the night in my car and wait for the next sunset.
This second attempt was even better as the light was superb and I has clouds in the sky. It also gave me the opportunity to find a better spot for the composition, hiding some road works that were done behind the church.
