Photographer and filmmaker Martin Heck from Timestorm Films has explored the Domoites in Northern Italy before. On his last trip, he made a film that showed the postcard-worthy mountains changing through the seasons. His latest film in his Dolomites time-lapse series covers the brisk and snowy winter months in this harsh climate. As Heck states on his Vimeo description:
Winter is a tough time for shooting in high alpine environments over longer periods. Both for equipment and people. Though it provides a wonderful quiet when all the people return to the valleys for the night and you are the only one left on the mountain.
While challenging, the results are spectacular, as the images are so sharp and the scenes so dramatic, the viewer feels as if they are standing on the frozen mountaintop with Heck as he captures sunrises, sunsets, and bright night skies. Quite the change of scenery from the film he made of the exploding Calbuco volcano.
Below are some of our favorite screenshots from the film.
