Alessandro_campo

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.

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.
