The story behind the image

We have been traveling to Italy quite frequently for the past 25 years. Lake Garda in the North of Italy is the location we’ve visited frequently. During one of the trips we drove around the lake in a single day.

We paused near Peschiera del Garda (in the south-east) and found the beautiful (small) beaches. There are a few piers, too, and this man enjoys reading a book on one of the piers. The mountains in the back are located at the western side of the lake.

I like the blue theme and how well the man contrasts with the blue. A peaceful scenery with lots of the copy space (for those who need it.)
