The story behind the image

Here’s a nice shot across the tiny harbour of Malcesine, a vibrant village situated at the eastern shore of Lake Garda in Italy. We had arrived wby passenger ferry and the sunlight was perfectly illuminating the boats. It was such a peaceful scene, and I guess it is still that way today: The Hotel San Marco is still there, the Café at the Piazza Guglielmo Marconi is still there, and yes, the express boats to Limone and other villages are still there. It’s as if the time has stood still for two decades.

Which is a thought I find – nice.
