Enrosadira on the Dolomites

Sunset on the Dolomites captured from Campitello di Fassa, Val di Fassa, Trentino, Italy. The peak in the middle is called Dente (2859 metres) and the one on the right hand side of the image is the Innerkofler (3114 metres). The red glow on the mountains is known as Enrosadira, a word of Ladin origin (not Latin!) . The optical phenomenon, observed at sunrise and sunset with variable intensity, is due to the type of rock that composes the Dolomites, known as Dolomia. In turn, Dolomia gets its name from the mineral Dolomite, which is made of calcium carbonate and magnesium.
