Snow hills and caves above the tree line

The weather was not really the best during my stay in the mountains. But the weather report predicted wonderful hiking weather for only one day. So I decided to wander into a region which is very famous for avalanches. Of course not without the appropriate survival equipment like avalanche beacon, avalanche probe, blade etc. which filled more or less 80% of my backpack. And finally … how could it be otherwise … my cam, one lens and a tripod … I had no space for more stuff he he he ;-) This winter season is very mild and the report for avalanche danger forecast has given green light for exact this region. I love that area … here you can find only mountain guides, climbers or free ride skier (backcountry skiing). And it is really a big pleasure to admire those mountain scenes which not very much people are able to experience during the winter months. Well, I was already coming down the mountain in the afternoon with my dog Giorgio when I reached the treeline. Caves, majestic mountains, Bonsai trees and a lot of snow hills, which were formed because of the rocks on the ground … it was clear that I wanted to wait till the sunset to make some shots. The sky was not really a beauty … therefore I tried to avoid a too big space of sky in the shot. I hope you like the result. And hey … as it was a bit boring the afternoon I also made a selfie with my dog Giorgio he he he ;-)
