Early morning rays of sunlight peek over jagged peaks in the Dolomite Mountains, a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3,000 meters. The striking landscape features vertical walls, sheer cliffs and a high density of narrow, deep and long valleys. The geology seen in an aerial photo is marked by steeples, pinnacles and rock walls, the site also contains glacial landforms and karst systems.
