Skywatch #60


Lake Maggiore, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

I'm dreaming of summer holidays. This shot was taken two summers ago on Lake Maggiore in Italy. This year will bring more Mediterranean travel, but I will have to wait until early September. Meanwhile, we have temperatures over 30 C here in London!!

I'm, too, dreaming of summer holidays, working on a sweltering day while 'normal' people spend their time on the beach, it's been so hot in Helsinki as well, not quite 30 °c, though.
Italy is gorgeous, you have skilfully captured the Italian colours and the softness of the air (& the cottonwool clouds) in this picture. Garda Lake is lovely, but Lake Maggiore does not look that bad either!

Wonderful scene. Hope you are going somewhere equally lovely for this years holiday. Will sure beat the temperatures on the underground.

Wonderful photo! I was never there.
I wish I was... we STILL have rain and cool air. No summer yet!!It's a bummer.

What a really lovely composed shot.
The tall tower, the spot of yellow, a hint of water and crisp skies - beautiful!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.
Beautiful place and shot.

and I since ages (actually since 40 years of marriage with an Italian from the Garda Lake) know this area by heart of course ! This time the weather was not so steady while here in Brussels we have the same temperatures as you in London ! I am melting !

You are roasting there, and we are freezing here. What goes on with our little planet?

That's a wonderful to inspire daydreams.

This really brings back memories.I know Lake maggiore well and we had our 'real' honeymoon there. at Ascona. I hope it's all still as beautiful?

Italy is so beautiful. It's hard to believe that it's over 30 C in London.
