This was our first overnight stay with the tent so we didn't really know how cold it was gonna be. It turned out to be pretty chilly after a while. We couldn't really sleep because of the cold so we got up at 3:30 am and enjoyed the pre sunrise vibe. After 10 minutes we started working, Tone V setup his timelapse capturing the classic view on the Furchetta, Mr Dyne walked around for a while to find some compositions before the sun rose. It's amazing to be at such a location before everybody else. When we woke up there was no sign of life in the whole area. This combined with the rising sun is one of the best ways to wake up and start your day.
As soon as the light hit the rocks Mr Dyne started running all over the place to get his shots. In the meantime Tone V flew the drone to capture some unique angles of the mountain. As soon as the light became too hard to shoot we made our way back to the lift to catch the first ride down.
Luckily we had a hotel after this pretty sleepless night. The hotel was kind enough to let us check in at 10 am (normal check in was at 3pm). This time Unitrips hooked us up with a really fancy hotel. It came with a pool, a spa, a huge breakfast buffet, a play corner, a garage,... After some sleep we did some post processing, enjoyed the pool and soon after we left for our sunset location.
This sunset mission consisted of 2 locations. First we shot Santa Maddalena Alta and later we went to the church of San Giovanni in Ranui. We had divided opinions about the sunset location. While Mr Dyne loved the scenery Tone V wasn't really impressed but after all we had a great time. There wasn't really much of a sunset so we made some food and when the sun went down we packed up and left.
We had no sunrise planned because we had to 'recover' from the short night on Seceda.
Later that day we went to Alpe di Siusi to shoot sunset. We arrived, parked the car and scouted the place. We found this really cool composition with 2 little cabins on the edge of a small valley.
You probably won't believe the next part so we made a video to show you guys it was real! 200 meters to the west there was a mountain hut with some 'loud' music. After a while the music suddenly stopped and we could hear the sound of a drone taking off. It became clear that the drone was headed our direction and when it came close enough we could see something was dangling underneath the drone. They hovered above us and came down to drop off a little bottle of liquor. This really happened!
The sunset wasn't really great so after a while we went back to the van to get some sleep because we wanted to shoot the milky way that night.
