Cinque Torri is one of my favorite photo spots in the Dolomites, especially for night photography. This panorama encompasses not only Cinque Torri but also beautiful and mighty Tofana di Rozes (3225m). And it also shows natural colors of nebulae – but some of them are drowned in light pollution (e.g. the Heart and the Soul). Nearly in the of sky you can see the Elephant Trunk Nebula and above is displayed the Cygnus constellation with the North America Nebula (NGC 7000).
