Lake Como 2008

In September of 2008 I went to one of the most beautiful places in Europe. Lake Como is nestled up in the Alpine mountains in Italy just before reaching Switzerland. I was there for only two days but I fell in love with every part of this lake. It is shaped like a wishbone and in the heart of the lake lies the city of Bellagio. Here is a collection of the photos I took through my quick stop there. I can not wait to make it back there one day to watch the sunrise and sunset sneak past the crest of the mountains surrounding the lake.
