This is the town of Bellagio on Lake Como in Italy photographed in the autumn of 2008 just before the setting sun dipped behind the mountains opposite the town.
For some reason I never got around to processing the photos from this short holiday with my wife to Lake Como and Milan.
All the towns in the Italian Lake District are really beautiful and it's difficult for any photo to do them justice.
There's a larger version of the photo here for anyone who is interested.
I've decided to enter the 'Cool Photoblogs' annual competition again this year. I'd really appreciate a vote from any of you who like my blog and who feel up to going through the registration process that is required in order to be able to vote: 2009 Photoblog Awards
