I have always wanted to see the Alps. They look so grand in the movies. After my roadtrip through the Norwegian mountains in 2014
, it felt like the next step would be to see the Alps. But the question was: in which country?
had never been to Italy before, and I had always been curious about
Venice. So a combination of a couple of warm days in the Venetian
streets and the cold Dolomites seemed like a great plan. So that is
what I did, and I asked my girlfriend to join me.
We flew to
Marco Polo airport in Venice, rented a car and headed west towards Lake
Garda. From there we drove north, with the destination the Dolomites.
Naturally, I brought my Canon 5D Mark III
with me as well as my new set of retro lenses from Dog Schidt Optics
, a company comprising one guy in the UK who makes bespoke retro lenses from old Russian lenses.
