    It's almost winter after all, so we leave the sunny 20°C of midday Tuscany and head to the warmest place in the Alps, where my brother found his place in the sun, many moons ago.

    It's known for its sunny climate, a tiny but tasteful olive oil production, but its utmost claim to fame comes from the beautiful people, since the times of the A-H empire.

    And it's true! Meet Giuditta and Daphne.

    Plenty of food, a walk in the rain, and colour. Plenty of.

    This morning, a little sun. Let's head South to the tiniest shore available:

    There, a queen of the waters waits for duty.

    Up there, the empire's plan B - just in case, as the border was a few km south. Eventually it didn't work.

    And then, a few hours in the rain going home.

    Just to be correct, should you decide to act, the pics above are about 300km north of Tuscany, on the northen shore of Garda Lake

    I thought this set of images looked like they were made at Riva at the north end of Lake Garda!

    Great set, which brought back memories of a holiday a couple of years ago when we were based at Malcesine. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Tuesday evening we have some friends home for onion soup from the oven - with something before and after and a little wine. Can you manage for 2130Z?

  12. I still reckon that Alf has unlocked some secret art filters on his E-PL1 and he's been holding out on us all this time.
