The story behind the image

We were on our way to Bagolino, a secluded village in the Italian Alps. We left the Brenner highway at Trento, using the smaller roads through the Alps. We had never been here before and were surprised about the beauty hidden just a few miles from the highway exit.

One of these surprises was Lago di Toblino, a smaller lake but incredibly beautiful – and peaceful! The sun was reflecting in the surface of the water and the Castle Toblino provided a dark but nice backdrop. A stunning image was the result. Who would have thought that?
