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.

This vivid red and white swiss flag fluttering in the breeze over the lake ferry jetty caught my eye, constrating nicely with the deep blue of the sky above.
