[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Fedaia lake is situated at 2030 m of height on the pass having the same name.
The lake is divided into the natural and the artificial parts: the first is bounded by a 60 m high dam making it useful for hydroelectric power production. The other side of the lake, the natural one, is delimited by moraine sediments and has a total length of around 160 meters.
The Fedaia Pass (from the latin "feda" which means sheep), that can be visited either in summer or in winter, is situated in front of the Marmolada's glacier. Skiers and particularly, off-slope skiers, will have a lot of fun from February to May thanks to the connection between Marmolada and the rope way of Pian de Fiacconi. The walkers and hikers can enjoy great unforgettable panoramas during the warmer months where they have the possibility to follow international conflict itineraries.

Hello, Cinzia -
Remarkable image - almost abstract, but the people walk along the top of the dam help orient the viewer. Fantastic POV and crop to exploit the unusual path of the dam; the water looks wonderful with the subtle highlights. Very creative and well done.

Superb realisation here.....
Tones and colors are simply incredible....
Majestic composition....
Bravo it is wonderful!!!!

Very impressive POV here on an equally impressive piece of engineering work.
Very graphic image.
I love the steel blue colours of the water and the dam.
Nicely done!

Ciao Cinzia,
