As you can see on the over exposed photograph below, I had a bit of a hard time taking a good photograph of Isola Bella. This island is one the four islands found on the Lago Maggiore, along with Isola Madre, Isola dei Pescatori and Isolino Di San Giovanni. The white sky in the background, is reminding me now of how bright everything was and how thankful I was to see the sun.
The bottom photograph taken from the other side of the island, shows the Pallazzo Borromeo which we did not visit. Yet it seemed such a rich historic site that I promised myself a guided visit the next time I’m in town 😉
Closing my eyes now, I am reliving this superb afternoon and can almost feel the heat of the sun and it makes me smile.
