Dolomite Sunset

It's the colour you come here for. The Marmolada, the Moon and the northernmost spires of Catinnacio at sunset. Monte Pelmo peeks in at left (September 2006).

I'm confused. Catinaccio and Pelmo are on opposite sides of Marmolada.

Re: Caption

You are correct! It's just the perspective - the photo is taken from the Denti di Terrarossa, facing east. Only a tiny fraction of Monte Pelmo can be seen at extreme left - see: http://www.summitpost.org/image/318663/150874/monte-pelmo-and-la-marmolada-at-sunset.html
