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.

Right at the northern end of Lake Como is the town of Gravedona.

Although quite a tourist hotspot, Gravedona still retains an air of quiet gentility, and Liz and I enjoyed a couple of lovely evenings here.

This image, taken during twilight, is one of the hundreds of still images I tokk that evening to make my Lake Como Timelapse #13 video, but this frame made a good picutre in its own right.
