These vertical walls of limestone are huge, they're about 250 meters (800 ft) tall and 1 kilometer wide, and are known as Parete dei Militi, which literally means Soldiers' Wall, presumably because in the past its ridge marked the border between Italy and France and thus, in World War II, the war front line..In the present days they're well known among Italian and international climbers for the fullfilling climbing experiences it can offer...I took this picture on an evening of mid October about 20 minutes after sunset, when the only source of light was the blue sky. This helped a lot in even up the asperities of the rock wall, giving it a smoother and softer look, and at the same time it let the wonderful fall colours of the trees to literally jump out. This is stitched from four vertical frames.
