The story behind this image

While staying at Lake Como in the Italian mountains for a couple of weeks' holiday, my wife Liz and I took the opportunity to have a look at the many towns that dotted the lake shore.

A short drive north along the lakeside raod from our apartment in Varenna was the charming little town of Dervio.

Much quieter than the popular tourist hotspots, this view shows the waterfront buildings set against a mountainous background.
