From high above
A view on the lake from the top of the mountain Coltignone (1500 m), in Parco Valantino, just some minutes away from Lecco.
Pity that the visibility was not so good, as there was no wind and the air wasn't clear. But still you can see the Swiss mountains behind, and the lake Lugano.
