Fine contrast of misty & clear background  (One of our best years for springtime snow :)...lot of, everywhere in Italian Alps... this Sunday had to renounce to an alpin ski route for too high risk of avalanches)

INRI
I guess is written over the top of the middle crucified person but the shot was taken from the back of the crosses so it’s difficult to see if they are real , still alive , people on the crosses or mummified remains or wooden sculptures?
I know churches like to do “the stations of the cross” at Easter but this looks quite high up in Italy making it even harder at altitude to carry the cross and cold too. Some countries in South America or Asia , people actually volunteer to be crucified for real to experience the pain and suffering.

I guess I’d have taken a shot of the mountains without the crosses at all or the crosses but from the front showing the crucified or is that not possible due to the drop off?

This is at a pilgrimage church and monastery (nowadays refuge) in the mountains it is at the end of a cross way leading up the mountain from 1300 meters to 2100 meters.There are processions  held past the stages.

Photographing it this way gives an idea of the scale, taking just the crosses from the front or only the mountain would be rather bland. The figures are local wood carvings, and as such not very interesting.

Quite high indeed (2.045 mt.) but don't get too impressed by snow... in summertime this place can be easily reached by any 4x4 through a dirt road : forbidden to tourists, but the holy crosses were probably not carried Handheld... ;)
