Montaz from Sprednja spranja / Lavinal dell'Orso

The view from Sprednja spranja / Lavinal dell'Orso towards the NW is wild. High walls of Montaz group are rising towards the sky, at the end of the crest there's Montaz himself - the highest of all, still receiving the sunshine. February 4th, 2007.

Magnificent Montaz

It's a very interesting and coldly charming shot from Forcella Lavinal del'Orso, quite remote place, especially in winter. The summit gleaming in sun rays gives a bit of warmth to this gloomy setting.
Cheers, Andrej

Re: Magnificent Montaz

Thanks, Andrej! I see I must correct my spelling - del'Orso!

Very nice shot!

I like very much this view of the Montasio group, it's quite unusual to see pics taken from there in the winter season.
By the way, the right spelling it's Lavinal dell'Orso.
Ciao Fabrizio

Re: Very nice shot!

Grazie Fabrizio, anch'io ho fatto un errore ortografico. Certamente si scrive dell'Orso. Con due ll!
Ciao, Andrej

Re: Very nice shot!

Grrr! I know I have elswhere written this name correctly - of course because I looked on the map. That's why I wrote initially - by memory - dell Orso. But forgot apostrophy. Thanks again to both, I'm correcting it again!

I like the silent and remote atmosphere of the place...

Re: Lovely!

Thanks, Stefano! In fact it was silent only because I was there the last skier that day. We have a 2-hour drive to the trailhead from Kranj :(

Re: Uoou..

Ja, this notch is in the shadow. Otherwise it was a nice, warm day - almost like a spring ski tour.
