my italian holiday - soglio.

the sun finally came out after a week of rain and during the last few days of my Italian Holiday the sky was clear and bright blue. the first morning of sunshine my sister and I decided to drive to Val Bregaglia in Switzerland to visit the little town of Soglio - dad said we were going to love it and he was absolutely right! at an altitude of 1,090m - Soglio was covered in snow and walking along its quiet narrow streets I felt like time had stopped. the view onto the valley was absolutely spectacular!

these photographs are so different from the ones I took during the rainy days of my holiday: everything is so bright and colourful and there is nothing left of the dramatic fog. as much as I appreciate cloudy skies and misty days in photographs though - I really enjoyed the sun that at last came out: I will always remember that day in Soglio with much pleasure! ♥

    1. Yes! I was very insistent, both to my parents and my sister, that I really wanted to do some field trips while I was there... and thankfully I have managed to do so!

  4. Finally some sun! I can imagine this. The days are still so short and dark. The snow also brightens everything.

    1. I agree! Though, I have to say, this January has been particularly bright here in Helsinki - the sun has been shining a lot these days. I hope you're getting some sun in The Netherlands too!

  10. That's white Wonderland! covered in snow... I visited the blog today, at a glance Polly, almost out of time, because I saw again, something as glorifying the look that I can not resist saying that these shots are gorgeous! so I guess it was an amazing journey :-)
