The story behind this image

In the autumn of 2018 my wife Liz and I spent an amazing two weeks exploring the lakes and mountains of northern Italy.

As well as spending time at the major destinations of Lake Como and Lake Garda, we also took our little Fiat Panda hire car out into the sticks, looking for less developed lakea and towns to explore.

One such excursion took us east from Lake Como into the mountains, driving along some wonderful, twisty roads.

Nestled in trees on the side of a mountain, the village of Premana was a visual treat from the side of the road where I stopped in a convenient layby to take this photo.
