A sail on Lago d'Orta

By TrevBatWCC    
Leaving Pella where the coach dropped us off, we sailed out on the short trip to Isola San Giulio, the tiny island in the middle of the lake. The lead image was taken from on the boat about halfway across looking towards the island. V1 is looking back to where we set off from, and the Chiesa San Filiberto shown in my previous upload can be seen over to the right. We passed by some chap (V2) who found a cheaper method of crossing the lake! V3 was actually taken as we were about to board the boat before we set off.

Many thanks to Colleen, Helen (helenlinda), Graham (Ericsamson) and Dave (HobbitDave) for their User Awards on my previous upload, Chiesa San Filiberto , and special thanks to Lynne (LynneJoyce) for her Guest Editor Award on that same upload, all most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Trev 😀

Another lovely set. I am inclined to favour V2 but that is less to do with the quality of the photograph, more to do with the eye candy!

A fine set from this photogenic locale, Trev: what a plethora of beautiful spots you have managed to visit on your holiday.
So many would serve well in advertising.
Rather like Lynne's comment........Ha ! Ha!

Someone must have had great confidence to spend all their money to build such a grand house out on an island.
