Showcasing the brilliant Dolomites Mountains of Northern Italy, this Drone Video of the Week Nominee by daniele bolgia is stunning. Called "The Pale Mountains" due to their color, this area of the mountain region soaks up the sunlight and turns stunning shades of orange, gold, and red at sunset. Daniele shot this piece on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, allowing him to really emphasize the brilliant colors seen in nature. The Dolomites cover parts of Italy's Trentino-Alto-Adigio and Veneto regions.

Contributor Alessandro_campo used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this magnificent aerial video from the Dolomite Mountains of northern Italy. Part of the Southern Limestone Alps, the Dolomites are far from the tallest mountains in the Alps system - Mt. Blanc is nearly 50% taller than Marmolada, the highest Dolomite peak.  What they lack in altitude, they more than make up in prominence, as you'll see from these astounding views of the mountains which was picked as a DVOW Finalist in October, 2019.

The three Northern Italian peaks you'll see here in this drone video by haussmannvisuals are variously known as Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Drei Zinnen, or the Three Merlons.  Under any name, they are amongst the most well-recognized mountain peaks in the entire Alps Mountains system.  Situated on the border between the South Tyrol province of Trentino-Alto-Adigio and the Belluno province of the Veneto region, the middle mountain of the massif has a peak altitude of 3k meters or 9.8k ft. above sea level.

One Day in South Tyrol


Visitors to the South Tyrol province of northern Italy are sometimes confused by the German-sounding names which are almost ubiquitous here.  The reason for that is that the area was part of Austria (actually, the Austro-Hungarian Empire) until the defeat of the Central Powers in World War I.  As a reward for joining the Allied cause, Italy was granted control of the province as part of the peace settlement.  Check out this stunningly beautiful region from above in this drone video by johannesbloechl.

The Italian Dolomites are bustling with natural beauty and diversity. The peaks, also known as the “Pale Mountains” take their name from the carbonate rock dolomite. Part of the Alps system, they were formed over 280 million years ago when parts of Europe and Africa were merged into the supercontinent Pangaea. Drone pilot _davidpeterson_ took his DJI Mavic Air out to the famous mountains, capturing this footage along the way, earning him a Drone Video of the Week nomination.

Italy's Dolomite Mountains are stunning in their natural beauty, and their jagged peaks make them among the world's most distinctive looking.  One of the most remarkable aspects of the history of these mountains is that they were the scene of heavy fighting in World War I.  Artillery duels between Austro-Hungarian and Italian forces in these passes were commonplace during the conflict, which ran for three years and resulted in hundreds of thousands of fatalities and over a million total casualties.
