The story behind this image

During our two week stay around the beautiful lakes of northern Italy my wife Liz and I spent a day tootling to and fro across Lake Como on the excellent ferry service that operates there.

Travelling by boat gave us views of the lakeside towns that we couldn't have seen by car, such as this scene of the waterfront buildings and promenade at Menaggio, full of olde worlde charm and backed by those impressive mountains.
