roadtrip…

After our visit to beautiful Lake Garda, my husband and I drove North through the Dolomites (Val di Fuenes) and then onward t’ward Neukirchen in Austria. It was probably one of the most beautiful drives we’d ever been on and I wish we could have spent a week in this area alone taking it all in. Unfortunately we were a little pressed for time, so I didn’t get to explore quite a much as I would have liked to.

I know I say this a lot, but these photographs don’t truly do this area of the world any justice. I guess I feel that way often when photographing mountain landscapes. I think it’s difficult to capture the majestic feeling you get when you are actually standing there and it takes an amazing photographer to do so….

Anyhow, gave it my best and here are a few images from our  drive. Hope you enjoy…

Even though Munich is only a short drive away from the Italian boarder, we had yet to make it down there in the 5 years I have lived here. Until last week that is. We finally made a little roadtrip down to Lake Garda and what we saw did not disappoint. It is so beautiful there, I think my photos hardly do it any justice!

We camped just outside the small town on the Northwest side, Limone sul Garda. We wandered the small streets, ate gelato, swam, paddleboarded, and of course drank wine…it was perfect. Looking forward to our next visit already.

a first impression.

Last week the hubby and I took a little roadtrip down to Lake Garda and back up through Austria. What an incredible area of the world, really. This was my very first impression of the lake as we drove around a bend and the valley below came into our view. Not too shabby Italy, not too shabby at all.

More photos from the trip coming soon :)
