Autumn colors

FoliageWhat best way to spend a november Saturday than taking a trip to the Lake of Como under a beautiful sun and having lunch out in the open right by the lakeside?

If you happen to go by there, take one of the boats that leaves from Como and stops in Tavernola, Cernobbio, Moltrasio and Torno. They leave every 30 minutes from one of the main piers in Como’s central Piazza Cavour. Disembark in Torno and go eating at Hotel Belvedere, which is on the southern side of the small square where boat pier is. It’s a quite inconspicuous 1-star hotel but it’s got pretty good dishes prepared from typical lake fish, like lavarello, agone and a variety of perch. You won’t find these anywhere else but around lakes.

The beautiful colors of the autumn leaves prompted me to shoot a fair number of pictures that I’ll be sorting in the coming days and posting to this set.

A best way would have been to spend a november Saturday taking a trip on the Maggiore Lake etc. etc. 😉

Don’t mind, I was just joking, it’s just competition (I live at Stresa since the late december 2000) 🙂

I agree with you about colors etc. and I think your photos captured this perfectly.
Maybe the best period for colors on the lake. And also because the weather is mild and there are not so many people.
Calm. A lot of quiet and stillness all around. I need it after a work week.
