Those who visit my blog regularly have noticed that Monday is my virtual travel day. This time I want to show you a small town in Austria known as Sankt Wolfgang in Salzkammergut region. The photos were taken some years back at the time when I still hadn’t discovered my passion for photography.

With winter coming and not many days of holiday left I will have to put off all my travels till next year. In the meantime I can either make some long-term travel plans or remember my past trips.
Here is a selection of snapshots from the most picturesque little lake in northern Italy. It is called Orta and it is situated at about 88 km from Milan. A few summers ago I spent a week there in a beautiful villa overlooking lush gardens and a quaint islet of San Giulio.

Dear God, protect this house, may the foot of a doctor or a lawyer never step in.

And a bonus “track” Here’s to a better year!

Something keeps calling me to Italian lakes over and over again, and it shall be one of my goals for this summer. Hopeful to discover more places like Orta San Giulio I am enclosing a photo I took two summers ago.
Thank you Jake for making us think of our goals or in my case dreams ;). I’ve just realised this is my 100th post 🙂 I hope it is milestone-worthy.

If you look up the definition of wonderful you’ll see that it means inspiring delight, pleasure, admiration, astonishment, or marvel. I felt all that an early October morning when I took a path around a gorgeous mountain lake and saw the morning mist lifting slowly to reveal one of the most beautiful lakescapes.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday…

This is the place where I come to reflect, to meditate…my oasis in the mountains, the emerald lake with the most beautiful reflections in the Alpine region of Italy, Lago di Braies.

The road taken ….. is not always the most traveled one …..
I would like you to listen to this soundtrack while looking at the photo below 02-nick_cave_and_warren_ellis_-_the_road-atrium

I am not into photo post-processing, enhancing or doing miracles with photos in Photoshop – for the moment I am only trying to mend a bit what went wrong in the photo writing process – that is what raw shots are for, right? One of the reasons is because I still don’t know what I am doing when I open Lightroom or Aftershot (Bibble). I am not here to talk technical stuff about editing photos – there are far more qualified individuals to talk about it than me, nor am I a creator of a photolog, trying to place their work to others or will ever be (not that there is anything wrong with that). I am just using images as I see them and feel them in order to express what I think/mean.
If my perception is blue (bluish – not meaning that I am blue) then so be it. This photo means hope to me, even if I am hopeless at editing it :D.
This is not a self-pity talking, nor am I fishing for extorted compliments…. I just wanted (had to) share what I thought. Later on I will make you look at moderate editing of similar shots of the same beautiful lake… just bear with me if you will ;).
