Lake Como Timelapse #6

The story behind this video

During the two week holiday that my wife Liz and I enjoyed in the Italian lakes overlooking Lake Como I was able to see and photograph the lake and surrounding mountainous scenery under a wide variety of weather and lighting conditions.

Absolutely beautiful under any circumstance, the view was equally as impressive by day or night, and I spent a lot of time getting out of bed in the early morning to watch scenes like this one, as dawn slowly arrived over a mist shouded lake and the town of Varenna below me.
