From the left, Punta Grohmann, Funffingerspitze and Langkoffel from the summit of the First Sella Tower (the City of Rocks proper is the extensive boulder field in the lower foreground)

Where is? The names sound German, and I wouldn't mind visiting some time, as that looks fantastic!

Dolomites in Italy - though a German-speaking part of Italy!
You can just make out part of Austria in the far distance on the right-hand side of the picture.
To give you an idea of scale, the face on the right is a little higher than El Capitan in Yosemite at it's highest point!
The peaks also have Italian names (and similarly in Ladin - another local language).
