The Marmolada by caterina

The Marmolada

This is The highest mountain of the Dolomites, reaching 3300 meters above sea level. There is a glacier descending from the top towards valley, but in the last few years its size has vastly decreased. Taken again with the cell phone 😡
Beautifully captured

How are you doing with the lock down?

Fabulous image -- amazing what the iPhone can do! I've been thinking of you often with the news from Italy. The US is apparently following your same pattern/trajectory.

@jgpittenger @taffy thank you dear Friends. We are doing fine, especially my husband and I up here in the mountains. However, our son Marco works in a hospital in one of the regions more affected by the epidemics and, although he’s a surgeon, the director of the hospital can ask him to move to the COVID ward anytime, due to the overwhelming number of patients. As you can imagine that is a source of great anxiety for us. Yes, the entire world is following the same path.

Wonderful shot. I feel some empathy with your son.

@caterina I've been following Marco's situation through @jyokota and thinking of him often. And we all so appreciate his continued emphasis that Junko get back home asap. Such good advice. My brother and SIL are both physicians in CO where there is a serious outbreak. The governor there has asked all recently retired (my brother) and eligible physicians to return to work, reinstating their licenses. My SIL does diagnoses and is in a high risk situation. And they are both vulnerable via age. It makes all this so personal and close to home. All the best to you.

Beautiful mountainous scenery

@taffy Yes Taffy, it is so personal. Thank you for your thoughts about Marco, I'm glad that Junko @jyokota was able to go back home before the flights were interrupted. She's now providing masques for him, that are becoming scarce here. Very nice of her. I hope that your brother and SIL will be able to stop their work soon, and in any case to be safe from the virus. Take care.

I love the stark white and strong blue making almost a half/half image. Makes me feel the cold air as I breathe in and see your image.

@caterina @taffy -- so true, I am grateful for Dr Marco's urging me to return home immediately!
