Sunday Walk: October 13, 2013

Hello world!

Yesterday we had the first warnings that alas winter is just around the door.  Here on Lake Garda, this is not as chilling as it may seem.  That large body of water, which of course makes our area a little humid along with the wooded areas all around our towns in this valley, keeps are area pretty snow free.  If you’ve been following my posts, you’ll have noticed palm, olive and lemon trees.  These won’t grow in any other area this far north…just too cold.

Later on we will get cold days…days that will go below zero celsius that is 32° F.  But they usually don’t stay there long, just long enough to guarantee that we have an apple crop because they won’t produce fruit without a cold snap!

Today I thought we’d look at what the world looked like yesterday.

The night had been a maelstrom of wind and rain, and I wasn’t sure what the dawn would bring…it brought sun into the valley though the mountains were still heavy with clouds.

Here’s dawn:

The day continued to be sunny, windy and cold so the air was crisp and clear:

Last night I tried to do a night shot…using a tripod with a candle light setting on my Olympus:

Arco by night!

Hope you enjoyed the walk and will have a lovely, warm Sunday!
