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 a day trip in our little Fiat Panda across the border into Switzerland, to have a look at Lake Lugano.

Our aim was to get to Lugano itself, which we managed in the early afternoon and enjoyed a great walk along the lakeside promenade, taking in the views of this lovely town, together with the surrounding lake and mountains.

One feature that immediately caught my eye was the very large waterspout fountain, just offshore and reaching a very impressive height, complete with mini rainbow in the blowing spray.
