Dusk over Bellagio

By TrevBatWCC    
After returning back to our hotel in Cadenabbia from our outing to St Moritz and Tirano, just before going for the evening meal as I looked across Lake Como the sun produced a wonderful golden glow over Bellagio, which is 1.8km as the crow flies from Cadenabbia. So, I grabbed the camera and went across the road to get these images, taking each of the three at different focal lengths. I've lead with my favourite of the three, as it shows the full height of the mountains towering over the town. V2 was taken a few seconds earlier at a wider angle, taking in the hotel's floating swimming pool*, and V3 was a few seconds after V1 and zoomed in a bit more on Bellagio.
In case you're wondering, if you happen to look at the satellite view on the map, it shows the swimming pool* as it was originally, part of the hotel. This is now no longer there, but across the road on a large platform floating on the lake side.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5 and Photoshop Elements 11.

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

V1 would be my favourite too, Trev, which is not to decry the others. The warm tones are simply fabulous, but it's the scale and the proportions that count for me.

Three interesting and beautiful images, Trev.
V1 is my favourite as it really does put the scale and size of the mountains into perspective.
What lovely evening light.
