No sunshine? No tourists!

Usually, on friday or saturday evenings people take a stroll along the lake before going to dinner, or sit down enjoying the view, when the weather is nice...

This picture reminds me of those photos we buy in expensive galleries...
So gorgeous...

That is so nice of you to say, Rose! Thanks!

Dina said...

Sometimes it seems like only photographers enjoy these ominous skies. Beautiful!

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thanks Dina, it probably is true...!

The black and white is a nice choice, I agree. Beautiful.

Thank you all! I have been away for a few days but will post again from tomorrow morning! Thanks for visiting my blog.

El blanco y negro es una perfecta elección para esta excelente foto.

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thank you, Pepe!!

Rosie said...

I have missed your blogs and have been here several times to check to see if there were new photos so I welcome you back ;)!

You know, I think I would be happy to sit there even without the sunshine - your photo is quite serene.

Sometimes bad weather is more memorable than good weather. And with bad weather, you enjoy the piazza all to yourself.

Thank you, Rose! I have been away for a few days, where I had no possibility for access. A few relaxing days reading, some walking in the rain and a good glass of wine in front of the open fire! And then to think that it is nearly summer! Tomorrow I will post again.

Thank you, Knoxville Girl! You are right: even if the clouds are stormy, symmetry gives (me) serenity.

Thank you, Dusty Lens! That's what it's all about in a touristic area like mine. Beautiful, especially during the week, when I have Arona all to myself!

Doesn't look too bad though? I'd say this is weather with some character! ;)

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thanks Per!

The lack of good weather is fortunate sometimes for the photographer. Superb compostion and light, and obviously had to be a b&w. Could sit and look at it all day.

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thank you, babooshka!!

Kala said...

its amazing how the water affects our moods and desires - nice photo. Arona sounds like a place in Shakespeares time =)

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thank you, kala!

Fredrik said...

Very nice, so graphic!

Clare said...

This is a wonderful shot... the sky is so extraordinary... and I love the composition :)

Carraol said...

Beautiful B&W composition, the bench adds story to the image. Cheers.

Diederick Wijmans said...

Thank you Fredrik, Clare and Carraol!! Enjoy your weekend!
