Lone Guardian

The Giau pass, seen from the Lagazuoi peak, with the Nivolau massif towering in the middle. Sometimes shooting with a long telephoto lens from a far distance can reserve some great surprises. This time the mountain, su huge, so lonely and so tall, seems a colossal guardian which protects the little church and the refuge post.
