above the village Canazei

The first possibility to take a first photo stop above the village Canazei is this one and we are lucky that it is not blocked by campers. Reason for low camper appearance in the Dolomite Alps is the month of May when this picture was taken. The road looks wet, but not from rain. It’s the morning fog. Down in the Fassa valley you can spot Canazei. The Passo di Pordoi is in the rear of the photographer.

Following the road uphill through serpentines you will hit a junction. If you follow that road straight on, you will end up on the summit of the Passo di Sella, taking a right on the Passo di Pordoi.

Pordoijoch west side

Same position as the picture taken above. This location is easy to find and best for action curve photo shooting. It’s just a little bit above the timber line with two big mountain hotels and a parking lot.

summit of Pordoijoch, Passo Pordoi

This picture was taken during a motorbike tour in September. It shows the summit on the side of the province Veneto with view up to the Piz Boé mountain. There was snow overnight down to 1.500m. In the shadow the temperature was down at 4°C, in the sun we have had up to 24°C. It just took several minutes and half of the tour crew had a sun burn in the face.
