    Summertime

    in this thread i write a simple thought, at the end of a short story
    feel free to skip the text and watch only the picture, it could be boring and ridicolous.

    anyway, any kind of comments on pictures (and on text, of course) are very welcome
    thanks for viewing


    this summer I spent about a month on holiday. I would like to share with you some "moments" of this quite uncommon vacation.
    I say quite uncommon because, the trend of the last years is for vacations as far away as possible (and often for less time).
    Despite that, I choose a destination very close to my home, only 50 minutes by car and 1 hourby ferry: I have been onto the ELBA island

    but my purpose was to deeply know this land, its inhabitants and its visitors, so close on the map but so distant for every thing else (since it is an island). focusing my eyes better than during my other previous tours on this island.

    So I attended the most famous and crowded places, as Elba is a famous touristic destination,

    Summertime

    Summertime

    but I've travelled round and around, from bottom to top,

    Summertime

    discovering a lot of hidden places unknown to the mass of people, but even more beautiful and peacefull

    Summertime

    Summertime

    never stop exploring, at every time of the day or the night, living the "movida"

    Summertime

    and relaxing in the silence of the night

    Summertime

    or tasting the local delicious courses

    Summertime

    or learning local old fishermans' techniques (sorry, no portrait of fishermans )

    Summertime

    finally, I'm amazed for how much one can discover, learn and enjoy even in the "neighbourhood" .
    one must grow up looking forward and backword, beyond the orizon but also just under its nose.

    PS plan a tour there.. you'll enjoy

    What a wonderful, wonderful story, Nicola! What a wonderful adventure and SO many wonderful photos - just really bright and colorful and clear and....all of that blue! Thanks for sharing it all.

    (I'm sorry that this is such a short comment, though. It's getting late....)

    These images are all very well done. The color is wonderful! A well told story as Katy mentioned.

    Too many to make any specific comments but I am glad you got a shot of my yacht in the second image. LOL

    I second all those comments - you've got some lovely shots there as lasting memories of your trip.

    my favourites are #4, #5 and #7 but they're all great and tell a lovely story of your holiday.

    ps That cablecar looks a bit hairy!

    Re: Summertime

    Some very nice images there... I suggest that you provide a space between the images that don't have text...

    It sounds as a compliment for that flying cage!
