Images from The Dolomites (1)

It's a quiet week here in Timperley.

The camera is taking a well earned rest.

I'm trying to 'process' several hundred images from last week, and will reveal slide shows in due course.

Many of the images are of flowers - they will have a separate album - there was a stunning variety of them last week.

Here's one to whet the appetite - Trumpet Gentian - Gentiana acaulis - it comes in many different shades, even white.

We had some great walks, including some assisted by wires.  It was a pleasure to have my son Mike along - his first holiday for many years.

Here he is, enjoying the scramble up the easy Piz da Cir V via ferrata, this time last week.  Was it really that long ago!

He made the summit!  Fabulous views here, towards the Austrian Alps.

Well, I've joined Facebook (apologies to those who seem to have been automatically invited to be friends). I needed to anyway.
Have added one photo, but not sure how to add an album, etc....
will keep trying!

Glad you are safely back. Lovely to know that Mike has been with you. Loved all the photos and look forward to seeing the flower pics soon. Shall I see you before the wedding?
love Dot
