I like the differences of colors divide the image to separate sections! :)

The morning light enhances the contrast between the grassy slopes and the rocks. :)

In the USA, the word "dolomite" refers to naturally occuring chalk. Is this where the mountains get their name, from the calcium in the rocks?

Source Wikipedia: :The name "Dolomites" is derived from the famous French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu who was the first to describe the rock, dolomite, a type of carbonate rock which is responsible for the characteristic shapes and colour of these mountains; previously they were called the "pale mountains," and it was only in the early 19th century that the name was Gallicized." :)

Calcium carbonate. Dolomite. Chalk. So this mineral was actually named for him. Fascinating. It explains why the mountains are eroding the way we see them. Thanks for the info, my good fellow. :D
