Photographer's Note

I'll come back to the Baltics later, but just having come back from a few days on Lake Como, here's a little interlude of post-card type shots.

From the eastern arm of Lake Como flows the river Adder, through the valley where Leonardo da Vinci had a long and varied involvement, not only paining, but developing many innovative technology improvements in the area.

The bridge pictured here pre-dates his period, and features on at least one of his paintings. There a theory, that the Mona Lisa obscures the bridge in the landscape behind her, based on comparing that picutre, with other landscapes which he painted.
