Lake Como (pics)
Oct 4, 2007

Just wanted to share some shots of 1 of the most romantic places in my country...this is where I got married....the cerimony took place at a villa on top of the lake's waters. No I didn't bring my camera w me at the cerimony Me&my lovely wife go back there a few times/year since it's only about 30miles away from Milan. Everytime we go for a different view on 1 of the mountains around.If you're marriage's in danger this place will set everything straight So quite,peaceful,romantic (except Bellagio too turisty). It seems like Lake Como is very very popular as a wedding place among americans,specially since G. Clooney moved here bringing along his friends (Di Caprio,K.Z. Jones&M. Douglas etc) a few times a year..they run around the lake with powerboats and all. During the making of "Ocean's eleven/twelve" movie all the traffic around the lake got blocked anyway enjoy the views:
A view from our room:

A pano (I know it looks like a scene from jurassic park):

Some very expensive villas on the water (sorry about the blown out sky I was on a boat..no time for a HDR)

I asked my wife to marry me in a restaurant in Como and since then we have come back regularly. But we live in the US now and I don't take my equipment on trips to Europe, so my photos from Como are from a SOny ultraslim and noth worthwhile to be shared here

Do you happen to have some shot from the funicolaro or the faro overlooking Como?

Re: Lake Como (pics) 12-24 Tokina! very nice.
In reply to Nello, Oct 8, 2007

Hi Nello,

i liked the 1st Lake Como pic the best and yes so Jurasic park i agree,

nice colours in the images and from your images it looks like a lovely place to live in as well, you have a beautifull country Nello.

your tokina 12-24 looks to be a nice sharp lens and suits the 350D very nicelly

regards
Michael.
