Cinque Torri of Dolomites, Italy. The literal translation of “Cinque”, five and “Torri”, Towers. Hence, Five Towers. Located south-west of Cortina d'Ampezzo, one needs to hike up to this spot as the ski lifts are closed on off-seasons. This was our first stop when we visited the area. After an awesome twilight, I was hoping that the golden hour would be just as amazing. So I sat there and waited but the sky just went kaput. To make it more interesting, I went on and looked for nice snow formations, making the best out of the given conditions.

Lago di Antorno, a small lake just after big brother Lago di Misurina. Hard to miss when you make your way to Tre Cime di Lavaredo. One can spot the reflections of Tre Cime and Cadini Peaks from there. 🏔 It was our first day in Dolomites. Exhausted from the long drive from Milan 🧟‍♂️, we decided to just check out nearby spots and maybe do some road-side snaps along the way. The wind was too strong when we stopped by Lake Misurina. Bye-bye 🙋🏻‍♂️to those sweet reflections. Re-checked my GPS 🗺 and saw a small lake just further up, might as well check it out before heading back to Cortina. So glad that we did! 💪🏻 The sky went 🤯 during sunset.

The massive Mount Wilson and the Saskatchewan River of Icefields Parkway, Canada. This area is called Graveyard Flats. Dispersed like little critters 🐜 going on our own separate ways finding interesting stuff to photograph as soon as we arrived. Since we had a plenty of time, I sat there and just watched the sun bathe the entire valley before going back this spot. I positioned myself in the middle of the stream, squatted a bit to make the water flow more intense.😂😂

Just got back from a week-long vacation in Japan. Rented a bike and rode around 🚴🏻‍♂️ the five lakes and visited Chureito Pagoda, climbed it’s 400 steps and managed to watch this awesome sunset. Oh and this is a no tripod place now. Shot it handheld, at high iso and multiple exposures. I ❤️ Japan 🇯🇵 !

This must be the BEST hostel I have been to in my life. @hostelsaruya accommodates only 11 pax max in the main building, making it exceptionally clean, cozy and quiet, unlike most hostels we know of. This is hostel living at its very best. Come to Fujiyoshida with your family or friends, rent a bike and enjoy this wonderful place. PS. This photo of Mt. Fuji was taken on my mobile phone, by the road, right outside the main entrance. Amazing. #hos#hostelya #fuji #mtfuji #fujiyoshida #airbnb #hostel #besthostel #kawaguchiko #chureito #vacation #patrickmarsonong

The ever beautiful Pragser Wildsee or more popularly known as Lago di Braies, located in the Dolomites, South Tyrol of Italy. One of many must-see locations when it’s your first visit to the Dolomites. I stayed in Cortina di Ampezzo, left early and drove all the way to Lago di Braies for sunrise. 🌅 I already knew the number of people that flock the area so I made sure to get there as early as I could. Reached the lake and no one was still there. 💪🏻 Was not expecting that the door leading to the dock for that classic shot of “dock-boat-mountain” spot was locked. 🔒 Was soooo so tempted to just jump the plank on the side which was also locked just to get access. Glad I didn’t, cause I know I’m better than that. I ended up with this comp along the shores of the lake. It was like Disneyland after sunrise. 😬

How about some Athabasca Swirls? 🤭 It was one of those epic mornings  from my visit to the Canadian Rockies last summer. Was not expecting that the light would blow up 🤯 like this since the haze coming from the forest fire was very thick. Since Athabasca Falls is so popular, that the place gets overly crowded during sunset, we opted for a sunrise. Had the entire place to ourselves. Amazing.👌🏼

Had a week-long vacation with my family in Dolomites, Italy last autumn. Still left in awe 😱 after seeing the towering mountain ranges of The Dolomiti. My sister and I took the Tre Cime Di Lavaredo hike and didn’t mind the gale force winds that day. 🌬 Damn, it was the strongest I have ever experienced in my life. We had our elbows crisscrossed with each other while hiking back just to keep our foot on the ground. A boom 🤯 happened while we were taking shelter from the wind. Yup, the sky blew up like crazy. 🤭 How can one resist those pointy spires backed by that burning 🔥 sunset? Grabbed my 100-400mm lens and fired multiples hoping to get something out of that crazy moment!
