my italian holiday - lago di mezzola.

my sister and I left Milano on the 21st of December to spend Christmas and the rest of my Italian Holiday in our hometown in Valtellina. I had not seen my parents for a whole year and being able to finally spend some time with them made me really happy! I promised myself I was going to make the most of my days in the mountains despite the rainy weather: Valtellina offers wonderful hiking possibilities and with my sister I have seen some beautiful places and taken many photographs!
Lago di Mezzola:
Nikon FM - Lomography Color Negative 400
the lake of Mezzola is just a few minutes drive from my hometown: as a child I did not see anything special about it but coming back there years after I have found it beautiful. that day the weather was particularly dark and rainy - yet the fog around the mountains and above the lake made everything look so magical. my sister too looked so lovely in her red hat! ♥

  5. oh polly, these are absolutely magical!
    the fog really gives a misterious side to these photos :)

    i guess we are always learning and aknowledge beauty in things and places we found rather uninspiring... :) i think that is a blessing!
