The Dolomites in 5K: Aerial Cinematic Video

electriclife

Contributor Electriclife created this stunning aerial video of the Dolomite Mountains.  Situated in northeastern Italy, this range is part of the eastern Alps, which have lower altitudes than the western Alps.  While the highest peaks in the Dolomites are a modest 3-3.3k meters (just under 11k ft) they more than make up for their modest altitude by their spectacular limestone rock formations.  Most of the range has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage natural site.

Italy's Stelvio Pass: 5K Epic Drone Video

electriclife

Electriclife created this breathtaking 4k drone video of Stelvio Pass, one of the highest mountain passes in the Eastern Alps range.  It connects Italy's South Tyrol and Sondrio provinces in the far north of the country.  With its hairpin turns, the road running through the pass is considered one of the best drives in the world, though certainly not for the faint of heart.   This pass was the scene of heavy fighting between Italy and Austria-Hungary during World War I.

Epic Nature: The Dolomites from the Air

electriclife

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.

Italian Dolomites: Villnöß

BashirAbuShakra

Behold this stunning 4k drone video by Bashir Abu Shakra from northeastern Italy.  Villnöß is a small town in Italy's South Tyrol province.  The German-sounding name of the town and the province is not coincidence; this area had historically been part of the Austro Hungarian Empire prior to it being ceded to Italy following the First World War.  His video gives us bird's eye views of the magnificent alpine valleys and jagged Dolomite peaks around the hamlet.

Drei Zinnen - Dolomites in 4K (Drone in Winter Wonderland)

Thomas Vitali

Contributor Thomas Vitali gives us a great drone's eye view of one of the most iconic spots in the Alps, specifically the Dolomite subrange of northern Italy.  The Tre Cime di Lavaredo, or Drei Zinnen as they are known in German ("three Merlons") is a three-peaked mountain which covers part of the the South Tyrol and Belluno provinces.    While the peaks once formed the Austro-Italian border, Italy's territorial gain of all of South Tyrol in World War I pushed the border well north of here.

Using hyperlapse techniques with a drone, contributor Gianluca_simonella created a dynamic aerial view of the famous mountain range. The immense mountain peaks stand tall as the delicate shadows of clouds pass overhead.
