Wall of Fame Winner • Adriana Benetti Longhini

Lake Braies, Dolomites, Italy
Canon 5D Mk II, Canon 17-40mm f/4L, f/8, 51sec, ISO 100

I live a few hours by car from the Dolomites in northern Italy, it is always easy to take a short trip to one of my favourite places in this magnificent area. Lake Braies, also called the Pearl of the Dolomites, is a magnificent alpine lake surrounded by the peaks of spectacular mountains.

Many photographers know that it is very difficult to capture original pictures in this very popular location. I was there in June last year, fairly late in the afternoon, hoping to avoid the crowds but much to my dismay there were a whole bank of people photographing the main viewpoint which is the famous little boathouse, also used to film a popular Italian mini series. I moved away and walked on the eastern shore of the lake, a bit disappointed with the fading light.

I noticed the last sun rays coming through the forest which illuminated the trunk of this old fir tree and its fabulous root system. With the incredible colours of the lake, in contrast to the orange/brown colour of the tree trunk and the sunlight, I knew this was the picture I had been looking for.
