Rainbow in Italy

With photography you just need to be lucky sometimes. There are many photos you can plan ahead like a sunset over the country side, a shot of the milky-way or whatever ... But some stuff just happens very rarely and cannot be planned upfront. My father calls these events the 'little gifts' in life.

Last summer I received one of these little gifts during our travels in Italy. All day the weather had been horrible and then suddenly the sky opened up and this rainbow unfolded right in front of the medieval town of Trevi in Umbria Italy. I immediately pulled the car over and took a couple of shots. Some minutes later the rainbow was gone.



Nostalgia in Torino

This autumn my wife and me spent some days in Turin, or Torino as the Italians say. A truly great city that surpassed my expectations. To be honest, I assumed Turin to be a grey industrial city ... but instead we found a large historic centre with tons of interesting sites to visit. Did you know that Turin was Italy's first official capital? I didn't!

This photo shows the window of the famous Caffè Al Bicerin, a coffee shop that openend in 1763 and where the famous Italian coffee was invented. In Turin you can find many of these places that seemed to have stood the test of time. Maybe Turin is a city of nostalgia. Let's find out :)
