Perfect reflection. Gorgeous--I'd love to go there someday, as well :)

Robin said...

sigh, that's all really, sigh...

The frosty tree's outside my window this morning were pretty, but I didn't go out to photograph...I'm a sea/warm kind of girl!

So whst the hell am I doing here?!

Pamela said...

I feel like I could be standing on my head (:

Rocks said...

me too..will keep on dreaming for now.

By the way, you have a very nice header picture. is that your kitchen island? oh I want to be in your island too!

catsynth said...

Beautiful picture, the symmetry and reflections are perfect. Italy is on the top of my list of countries I still have to visit!

BTW, I also like the new header look. Very contemporary.

Robin said...

Thanks Rocks and Catsynth, that is in fact my kitchen - the "island" in Around the Island :).

Stan said...

That's really a nice shot. It's relaxing just to look at it.

Sometimes it can be a nightmare too, especially when you have family there, lol !

Sreisaat said...

Oh my, very postcard-pretty!! The place looks charming. I, too, would love to go there someday :)

Beautiful undisturbed moment. It does trigger the brain to dream.

Grace @ Sandier Pastures said...

Oh now, I'm going to dream about it too! Very nice photo, Robin! You captured the perfect moment.

Eaton Bennett said...

Robin, what an amazing photo...

Beautiful shot... love the way the clouds are reflected in the water!

June said...

That's one pretty scene! Well captured!

Nicole said...

Oh, sweet shot!
That must have been a lovely trip!
Wish to go to Italy for some shooting, sigh :)

Re DSLR:
I waited almost two years until I took the step of buying the D300. That's 4 years with a P&S and no loss of interest and love in Photography.
When I started selling my pics in Kuwait (in person) and online, I knew I should take the step.
But it was hubby that finally convinced me :)

Happy WW!

margalit said...

Me too. Did you ever wonder how that bridge stays up with the weight of all that gold on it?

Terri said...

Oh that does look inviting.

Leora said...

When my kids are in graduate school and the dog dies (oh, wait, we don't have a dog, no need to deal with that), my husband and I are going to Italy. No ifs, ands or buts.

Gorgeous photo.

Warm greetings from Africa!
