9 Photos of the Dolomites to Inspire Your Wanderlust



Aaron Hagen

Tucked away in Northern Italy within the Southern Tyrol region (formerly of Austria) lies some of the most dramatic mountainous landscapes in all of Europe.

A lone church sits still amongst a field of flowers as the mountains loom behind.

Woke up like this. No, seriously.

Met some of the locals on top the mountain of Seceda (2500m).

The beautiful crystal clear waters of Lago Di Braies. This view will never get old.

 Need to know what kind of conditioner this guy's using!

How could anyone ever be bored on a planet as amazing as this?!

The 360 view of the Dolomites when the sun is setting is a lot to take in...words cannot express.

There are not enough pictures of Seceda in the world, this place is magical for golden hour!

Sunrise, an empty Lago Di Braies all to ourselves, and views like this make for the perfect morning.

Climbing in 18-Degree Weather to Shoot the Sunrise

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Our Hike to Angels Landing: Dangerous? Maybe. Amazing? Definitely.

Angels Landing, Utah

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.

Southern California's Off-Season Gems: Mojave, Death Valley, Alabama Hills, and Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park, California

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
