LAGO DI BRAIES, SOUTH TYROL
Location: Lago di Braies, South Tyrol, Italy
Opensea: Under the Cabin
Lago di Braies is one of the most iconic locations in Italy and it's only a 2.5 hour drive from my house and I've had the opportunity to photograph this location several times in the last 4 years. When I visited back in October 2021 to show a friend this location, I already knew what to expect. I expected the water to be high, the entire set to be picture perfect. But, that wasn't the case. The water was low and the whole scene felt dull. As a photographer, I pride myself in finding beautiful places and sharing them with friends and loved ones, but this particular visit felt like a disappointment. But how can a place like this be a disappointment?
So, when I looked at the cabin, I saw an opportunity. This iconic cabin has been photographed numerous times from land, but I personally have never seen it photographed from under.
To this day, this is one of my favorite photographs I've ever taken of Lago di Braies and the photo does not exhibit dullness, but just perfect.
