Into the Sun!

I have called this image ‘Into the Sun’.

A stunning show of soft powder being highlighted by the soft rays of the setting sun.

Something that caught my eye during a snow storm!

This scene kinda caught my eye, whilst trudging around in shin deep powder one snowy day in Cortina.

Exit Images from Beautiful Cortina

Here are the 2 last shots I took on the way out of Cortina yesterday.
I am thinking perhaps the last was the best for the stay actually! #Ambra Hotel,#Cortina Panoramas#Stunning Mountain Vistas

Snow Vistas

Here’s a couple more snow vistas for you. The top one is a frozen lake that I bet is stunning in the summer.

Toboggan Run

This was the scene of the toboggan run we did a few days ago…pretty cool fun and quite different to what I was expecting.
I stopped half way and put the drone up to get this image.
We went all the way from top to bottom down that track!

Hotel Ambra Cortina recommendation

We have now been in Cortina, Italy for just over a week and staying at the Hotel Ambra.

Hotel Ambra is perfectly located near the centre of town and across the road from a great ski rental place run by a great guy, Paelo, pictured above outside his shop with me and his assistant.

He goes out of his way to advise you on anything from ski conditions, to restaurants and where to go.

The Staff at Hotel Ambra are exceptional and cannot do enough for you. The rooms are of generous size and they clean the rooms very well every day.

They also advise on outings and where to go etc.

The breakfasts are very good and I must say that our experience here at Hotel Ambra has been up there with one of the more pleasurable we have had in our travels.

Seeing as I have spent a lot of my life travelling and selling boats, the above statement means something for sure, as I have stayed in many, many hotels around the world.

As many of you know, I also am half owner of the True North which is also well know for great service and quality in general, so once again the above accolades are based on a high expectation and criteria.

Below is a link to Hotel Ambra:

Below is a link to Noleggio Ski Rental:

The above post has not been sponsored in any way and I write  it based on the exceptional experience we have had with both these places.

I hope it assists some of you with your travels in the future!

Cortina Gold!

I hired a driver this afternoon and between the drone and the Nikon I reckon I shot about 600 images.

Cracker of a day out and this was the last of the drone stitches I did. 37 images in this one!
