The story behind this video

During our two week stay in an apartment overlooking Lake Como my wife Liz and I were treated to many and varied views out over the lake, mountains and towns of this beautiful region of Italy.

Part of the charm was the very varied and active weather that high mountains attract, with no two days or nights being the same.

This particular time lapse video shows a subdued dawn arriving over the lakeside town of Varenna, as the artificial lights slowly fade away to be replaced by the cool twilight lighting up the clouds over the mountains.
